I was looking for fairly common stuff, bunch plants, Val, etc.,  just to 
rebuild my stock. Got gobs of them.

I wasn't really looking for crypts, so dunno if any were rare.

KL sent a bunch of rare mosses from Singapore. I also got some in from 
him, too late, so there are a few more to be sold through TAG, probably. 
Tropica provided a lot of starts/genetic-samples that I mostly felt I 
could not afford.

I got a huge wad of Riccia for a ludicrously low price. Bought hairnets, 
but need to find small round rocks to tie it to.

I wanted downoi, but didn't see any. Will have to get it when I go to 
Singapore, next week, I guess.

My best bargains were in hardware. That was what I thought was really 
cool. The vendor support was unusually strong and lots of fine hardware 
was auctioned.[Thanks Mrs. Olson. Our past-pres.'s lovely bride arranged 
it all on very short notice. Much appreciated.]

I got a much-needed 50 ft. Python, a Tom Barr tank with bent-glass 
corners, aquasoil & lots of accessories, a Tetra Deep-Water pump and a 
jillion thermometers of various types. I also got a lifetime supply of 
various T-8 tubes. I got several nice pieces of Mopani wood, too. Still 
sorting and putting away, a week later!
