Stains Available:
As I mentioned I am closing Eucalyptus Stoneware after 40 years in business and would like to find  homes for these Mason stains.  The picture shows some of I’ve got for sale.  (The blue cans in the background are full, by the way) Pick a stain, call around and check the prices.  You’ll see that I’m selling these pretty cheap.  I realize you don’t know me from Adam.  Ask Lana Wilson or John Conrad, they should vouch for me. In order to do this efficiently here’s how I propose to do this:  Minimum order per stain is 2 lbs.  Minimum total order is $50   (Please put  small groups together for group buys so I can ship to fewer addresses.  Cuts your shipping costs, too!)  All orders will be shipped on either Friday, Oct 12 or Fri, Oct 19 FYI, a priority USPS box will hold 20 lbs and ships for a flat rate of $12.65.  Quantities above 20 lbs will ship FedEx ground from Eucalyptus Stoneware.  Payment will be Visa or Mastercard only—we will complete this transaction over the phone Send orders to  I will reply within 24 hours to let you know status, that is, what’s sold out and what I still have Call (858) 755 5656 with any questions and leave a message!!!  With your order please include name, shipping address, and phone.  I’ve got a great scale and will be generous with my weights!  First come, first served.   So act now!  Stains marked *** indicate small quantities that will be sold in their entirety.  Here’s what I’ve got:

And just in case somebody wants to do a half scale sculpture of, let’s say, the Golden Gate Bridge in, let’s say,  a Pepto Bismol Pink I have 180 lbs of a stain, Mason 5925, that will get them happily on their way.  My only request is that nobody asks why I have this much of that stain.  I’d go into a mild depression that could last for weeks.
