Charleen Kinser's Private Reserve

   

Dear Kinser Collectors,

As you may now know, Charleen passed away April 7, 2008. Over the prior 4 years Charleen had been parting with pieces from her private collection of her creations and I've been selling them for her. Although I've found it very difficult to part with many of the pieces, it has been joyful finding new homes for them and knowing how happy so many others are to add them to their own collections.

This Private Reserve of pieces includes regular production pieces, artist's proofs, prototypes, one-of-a-kind pieces, and show samples. It's an amazing collection of pieces that Charleen has designed that we'll never see again all in one place. Please browse the selection of pieces and see if there are any you'd like to add to your collection. I've tried my best to put as many accurate details about the pieces as possible, but there may be some typos, cut-and-paste errors, or missing information so if you need more details on a piece just ask.

Shipping charges will be added to all orders. Most of the pieces are new or show samples, but some do not come with all the trimmings such as hang tags and leather medallions. A few pieces are also "naked" - for example a missing ribbon or accessory. If you have any questions about a piece please ask before purchasing, as all purchases will be final. Unfortunately we cannot offer layaway on any of these items.

Payments can be made by personal check or money order. Credit card payments can be accepted through PayPal Shipping/handling/insurance will be added based approximately on UPS Ground rates or USPS Priority Mail rates. After you email me what piece(s) you would like to purchase I will email you back with a total and details on how to send payment.

If you are interested in purchasing any of these pieces please send an email to the email address below with the pieces that you are interested in and any questions you may have. If you don't hear back from me in a day or two please send the email again and put "CK RESERVE" in the subject line. I get so much junk mail that sometimes I miss a real email because it gets sent to my bulk mail folder.

I've also added some additional inventory from other private collections to this page at the bottom. If there is something about a piece that isn't in excellent condition I try to note it in the comments section of the particular piece.

none

May we all celebrate Charleen's life by enjoying her wonderful creations!
