I always used my debit card from my checking account. It looks
like a credit card, but isn't
I charge all busniess purchases on a credit card, but pay it off
every month. I do it to keep all business expenses separate and to
have a record of them.

Seems like my observation about SOFA Chicago this year was right. I got the newsletter and report about this show yesterday. Take a look at these astronomical prices that were paid for potters like Richard Notkin and Rudi Autio etc. A Lino Tagliapietra wall installation went for $180,000! SOFA claim that it to be one of the Top 10 Personal Finance Daily stories on MarketWatch for the week of Nov. 17-21. This is a happy story for artists just before the DOW fell by 400 points. I actually saw people pulling out check books.....not credit cards!

Another interesting tidbit from Chicago's SOFA -
Tammy Garcia (see http://www.blueraingallery.com/artists/tammy_garcia/potte=
ry/) brought four of her pots - unannounced - to the show. We have admired =
her work for years, but have never even seen one of her pots, not even in h=
er own gallery. They are all sold before they're even created. She said tha=
t she makes about 15 pots a year.
But there they were. Four of them, gleaming in the spotlights. I didn't eve=
n think to ask if they were for sale. I assumed that they were already spok=
en for and were just there as props. These are pots that, even if you have=
the money, you have to enter a lottery just to maybe get the chance to buy=
one. Or else plunk down your cash and wait five years or more to get a com=
But Lynne did think to ask. And they were for sale. I know that two of them=
sold by the second day.
I know where one of them went.
We are thankful
