The time has come for me to now fess up to what has been going on behind the scenes here in Calistoga. When I sold my home in MA and decided to move I had every intention of bringing the entire collection with me.
Unfortunately I was just not able to find a home large enough to accommodate the entire collection as well as furnishing from both me and Linda.
I gave it a lot of thought and went back and for with my webmaster Steve and my son Jason and the ultimate conclusion was that I kept a core of figures that I loved but the bulk of the Ventriloquist Central Collection will be sold at auction.
This will give every one of the folks that constantly said I was hoarding figures that great opportunity to purchase one.
The sale will be in two sessions the first in late September and the second session in late October.
So watch close and we will be putting up information for you as the time grows near. I am sad to have to do this but it really was something I had to do.
Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to: http://www.ventriloquistcentral.com
