Follow Up-Name The Collection

This has been one of the best things I think I have presented to everyone who reads by blog. We have had so many comments and great name suggestions that I almost could not believe what I was reading. So at this point I wanted to make the list consolidated so that everyone can go though the list of name suggestions one last time and then make your final name suggestions before we close this out to hone it down. I am so happy you all have participated and if you haven’t make sure you do now.

    A good one would be same language appearing on Frank Marshall’s business card without his name, address and phone number.

  2. Dan Leighly says:

    Out of all the names submitted, I like these the best:

    The Willinger Collection
    The Collectibles

    With this said, I must add one new one to the list:
