      Thamk you walkksoftly. I have spent a hundred hpurs in research and have one refermebe on "Worthpoint"(ypu have to pay to get any imporatant info, but the one that sold had the exact Stamp as my larger canvases doie: "Tong atia, fuh king street,Fatshan, Canton China, and one other but that said Tong Tai 's bread and butter were gols leaf paintings for the monks to applt to the shrines and alars...NO easy feat, I swear, one strong breath and a little rips. I was so mucky, as was the guy I got them from, to have lost them in big books, protected for all of these years. I have about 50 in all. A LOY of the big canvases, and tons of ladies walking ans lions. I want totry E-Bay as it would help the Medical Bills, but errr...I'm not so sure. I started my store and call it "The Family Boxes", a play on the family jewels when your family, or in this case mine, is a Matriarchal Matrilinear family, Thus, The family Boxes!! Anyways we shall see, have always been an accumulator, not a seller!! I will be ytelling people, oh, I'm sorry , that one's not for sale, nor is that one, in fact, nothing is for sale, the store is closed lets go to the beach!! No , I will be diligent(I am supposed to be listing auctions now!!), if you go to E-Bay search "Antique Prayer cards" as I think I am)r was) the only person stupid enough to put something so cheap!! They arebeautiful though and I want them to be in the right hands!! I have quite an eclectic Posting Page, my Japanese Erotica Netsuki has had 130 view and 17 watchers, someone already bid the 199.99 to start. I listed it at 3 in the morn and by 7 had a bid. The real Collectors wait until someone like me comes along and s giving away a Treasure!! Sorry to be so chatty, my back hurts and I don't want to list anything!! Thanks again, I'm going to bed!!

      I tried to find your items or store but couldn't.

      Thank you for taking the time walksoftly! As of two weeks ago, I was the only person to be selling "Antique Prayer cards", under the name michelleamieux, and then they added the store name, "The Family Boxes". Try searching Antique Prayer cards, like "Antique Prayer card, Stella Matutino,1935, Litho, Convent of Saulk,Canada". I am not sure 1f other people are now selling old prayer cards, but I started with the inexpensive, $1.49, no tracking, to see how E-bay worked. But, it seems to be the best way to find me there. They need a better system of looking up sellers an stores. I am so honored that you went and tried, thank you!!

      Found your store, good luck.
      I agree they need a way to search store names.
