LADIES  AND  GENTLEMEN:  This  is  a  RIP-OFF   REPORT,  on  GROVE  SPRINGS  HOMESTEAD,  a  consignment  furniture  outfit   in   GROVE,  OKLAHOMA.

I  put  some  very  fine  pieces  of   TELL  CITY   FURNITURE,   in  their place,  on  consignment,  as  they  SEEMED  to  have a  decent  situation going  on  there.   They  have a  certain  following  there  in  Grove,  OK  and  in  the  general  area.

As  I said,  I  had  some  very  fine  pieces  placed  there.   The  deal  you make  with   them,  normally,  is  a  60/40   split.   These  people   get  a  good  deal  of  walk-in  traffic.  

Over  a  period  of  about  14  months,  they  sold  most  of  my  pieces.

HOWEVER:   Now,  here,  I  need  you  to  pay  strict  attention  to  what I  say.   I  inherited  an  ULTRA-FINE,   PERFECT,   TELL  CITY   BREAKFRONT-STYLE   CABINET.   It  was   an  early   1950s   breakfront.   In  my  family since  it  was  BRAND  NEW.   

This  piece  was   ALL  MAPLE.   CAN  YOU  IMAGINE  HOW  INCREDIBLY  BEAUTIFUL  THIS  FINE  PIECE  WAS ?    OF  COURSE !!!!

They  had  this  TELL  CITY  MAPLE  piece  for  a  while.    So,  I  got  to  thinking  about  things:   This  thing  is  worth  more  than  what  I  have posted  on  it.  At the  price  I  have  on  it,  I  am  just  giving  it  away.

So,  I  went  down  to  the  the   place,   Grove  Springs  Homestead.  I  asked for  the  woman  with  whom  I  formed   my  original   consignment,  but  she wasn't  there.   Another  woman  was  there,   with  whom  I  had  had  numerous conversations.

I  told  her:   I  am  going  to  do  something  different  on   my  Mother's   TELL CITY  BREAKFRONT.   I  want  sixteen  hundred  dollars  ($1,600.00)  for  this  piece,   and   I  will   handle   the  advertising.  She  asked  me  what  I  might  do
to  advertise  this  very  special  piece.   

I  replied  that   I  was  going  to  perhaps  do  many things:   CRAIGSLIST,   the GROVE  SUN  classified  ads,   The  JOPLIN  GLOBE,  and  other  things.   She  said, " You   know,  I  don't  think  it  will  sell  for  that  kind  of  money".

I  told  her  that  I  appreciated  her  opinion,  but,  I  told  her   that  I  was  not  about  to let  that  piece  go  for   the  $400.00   (four  hundred)  dollars  that  THEY
had  on  it.

AGAIN:  she  said,  "  The  market  is  depressed  on  this  kind  of  thing."

I  should  have  listened  closer,  and  picked  up  what  the  woman  was   trying to  tell  me.

The  next  time  I  was  there,   they  had  MOVED  my  piece  from  the  main  large room,  to  a   small   storage  space,  next  door.   I  should  have  paid  more  attention to  that,   also.

Some  time  went  by.  I  got  busy,  with  what  I  do,  which is  making  films,  and  other  kinds  of  business....    One  day,  I  went  to  my  mailbox  in  Grove,  and  and  there  was  a  piece  of  mail   from  these  people:   in  the  envelope,  was  a  company  check  for   60  per/cent  of  the  lousy  $400.00   bucks  they  had  originally  on  the  piece.

I  knew  EXACTLY   what  these  women  had  done:   They  had   STOLEN   my breakfront.   Oh,  Hell  yeah!!!!!    This  is  a  case   of  THEFT  THROUGH  CONVERSION.

The  owner  there  is  a  middle  aged,  pretty  woman   with a  keen  eye  for  QUALITY.

And  I  will   tell  you  right  now,   what  she  did:  she  took  my  Mother's  TELL  CITY MAPLE  BREAKFRONT  home  with  her,   and  PRETENDED  to  sell  it.   

I  went  to  see  these  very  fine  ladies.   They  knew  EXACTLY  why  I  was  there.  They knew  they  were  in trouble  with  Dr.  H.  E.  "Buz" Sawyer,  Jr.   

Here's  what  these  LIARS,   CHEATS  AND  THIEVES  had  to  say....now  get  this:

They  said,  basically:  TOUGH  SHIT  IF  YOU  DON'T  LIKE  IT.   WE  TOLD  YOU  IT WOULDN'T SELL  FOR  SIXTEEN  HUNDRED.  SO, IN  SPITE  OF  THE  AGREEMENT  WE HAD  WITH  YOU,  WE  SOLD  IT  ANYHOW,   AND  NOW  YOU  HAVE  YOUR  "END OF  THE DEAL".     That's  EXACTLY  what  these  women  said.   

This  is  THEFT.  PLAIN. AND. SIMPLE.   THEFT.   

QUICK  LESSON  IN  BUSINESS  LAW:   When  you  lend  a   party  a  piece  of   property, for  ANY  REASON,  that  property  is  a   "BAILMENT".  And, under  CIVIL  LAW,  the  person that  is  HOLDING  THE  ITEM,   MUST  take  REASONABLE  CARE  of  the  item.

I  could  not  go  to  the  cops, with  this,  as  it  was   placed  with them  under  a contract.   See  what I  mean ?

I  would  just  like  to  point  out  that  GROVE  SPRINGS  HOMESTEAD  owes  me $1,200.00   dollars,  and  a  letter  of   apology.   And,  like  many  business  deals that GO TO HELL  in  a   handbasket,   it's  a  CASE  OF:   NO  GOOD  DEED  GOES UNPUNISHED.

THEY  ARE  LIARS, CHEATS   AND    THIEVES.   PERIOD.
