ALES OF/OS Marketplace...

After nearly a year of being deluged with requests from collectors wanting to know where to go to pick up new Original Finish and/or Original Sculptures (or Artists Resins), we decided to move this section from the ALES Oval Office and give it it's own space. Hence the birth of this page.

If you have an OS resin longear or exotic that you're pushing, consider announcing it here. Just forward product info directly to us, along with a pix of said model, and I will post it free of charge. If you know of an Original Finish longear or exotic model that is currently available to collectors but not listed here, again please feel free to drop us a quick email about it as well. We want to be as thorough as possible & help collectors add to their collections at the same time.

Personal saleslists & regular Customized models should not be listed here, but rather on the ALES Braynet Messageboard instead. (See Nav Bar atop this page).

For list of books, auction houses, clothing, & other general gifts like jewelry/stationary/ornaments/ rubberstamps/etc., please check out our Links Page section. (See Nav Bar atop this page).

Original Finish Heads Up!

Word coming through the grapevine that the Hartland Company was recently bought outright and plans are to reintroduce the model line again. Among some of the molds that did not see production years ago when Steven Manufacturing first shut down, were the Friesian and Saddle Mule molds (both sculpted by hobby icon Kathleen Moody). It is hoped that previous rumors of those molds being partially destroyed are false, and that they will eventually see light on a whole new generation of collector shelves. So add this little website jewel to your list of fab bookmarks: www.hartlandcollectibles.com

Ertl has a wonderful traditional size Plains Zebra mare available through the Toys R Us chain. Only, you won't find it among the usual Breyers aisle. Look for them in the youngster (preschoolers) educational section or else visit this website: www.miscoe.com/~genestoys/toyshoppe/toys/c-zebra.htm

The Breyer #747 Saddle Mule (Brown Sunshine mold) in seal brown has been discontinued but take heart, it's being reintroduced in 2001 in a wild spotted pattern reminisicent of the Breyer Appy Perf horse. Also debuting for the new 2001 season, several brand new molds - one of which is a lovely miniature Sicilian donkey. Both the spotted saddle mule and mini donk can be viewed at this dealer's site: www.gentrymodelhorses.com
