Attention Sid Collectors

From the Sid Dickens camp, here are the tiles that will retire on December 1st, 2008. {Double click the image to enlarge.} We have most of these styles in the shop and ready to sell {and ship}. Anything we are sold out of can be special ordered until December 1st. Please note that the artist and company are notorious for making no exceptions, so please get your orders in early or stop by the shop soon.

Don't mind the smudge in the lower lefthand corner of this image. It's not a secret cypher from Sid Dickens, just ink on my scanner unit.

Some of my very favorites are in this Retiree list, including The Letter {T149, second to last on the top row}, Watermark {T177, first tile in second row}, and Cerulean Sea {T184, third to last on second row} . We'll never really know why the Sid camp chooses to retire which Blocks when, but I can promise you it has nothing to do with how well they sell!

Interested in learning more about the history of Sid's works? Curious about the market value of your retired tiles {they go up in value afterward, you know}? Check out Sidclopedia, billed as the internet's Ultimate Resource for Sid Dickens Collectors.

Someone sent me this postcard in the mail this week and I logged on to check it out. You have to create an account in order to get into the site, but it's worth it if you're an avid collector wanting more info, a new collector looking for inspiration on how to hang and display tiles in your own home, or just a fan. Lots of great photos of collections displayed in people's private homes. Eye candy for Sid fans! Please note that THE BLISSFUL has no affiliation with this site other than that I created a personal account so that I could review the content.

Peace on Earth's in just ten days {THE BLISSFUL version, at least}! Back to picking glitter glass shards out of my fingers. . .

Scribe's Note: Another Sid fan website worthy of checking out: SidDickensCollectors.com. Great home photography and a message board forum for collectors. If you're looking for a hard-to-find Retired Block, this may be a good place to start. Cheers!
