Helen Garriott Auction Spotlight + SotA Bonus Golden Moon Dial Auction Spotlight


This was an exciting auction to come across my radar, as while I have heard a lot of the Garriott stories I had never heard of this one!

Story or not the photo is fantastic. You can see the pure wonderment on Helen’s face, and Owen in the background has a huge grin!

$10.00 Starting bid with reasonable shipping, this is a cool addition to someone’s collection!

Since I hate doing auction spotlights for just 1 item, I figured I will use some of my own blog space for a couple of auctions I am running for Shroud of the Avatar items, one in particular.

If you didn’t Seed invest but are a collector, then you may have your eyes on many of the Seed invest items. Currently, I have an auction that just started, running just a tad over two weeks, for a Golden Lord British Moondial, taking place on Caveloot.com.

Auctions – Caveloot.com

The Moondial to rich for your blood? Do you have some house decorating you need to do or having trouble keeping your vendor stocked and need goods to sell for profit?

I also have an auction running for a “Massive House Decorating kit” that comes with hundreds of items that should allow you to at least get a fairly decent start on the job, including storage! Current bid is $55.00 and that is CHEAP for this kit!

Auctions – Caveloot.com

Also, have a nice layout with the details on the Shroud of the Avatar forums here: Online Auction Services at Caveloot.com – Perfect for Selling Golden Items! | Shroud of the Avatar Forum

Helen Garriott Auction Spotlight


Once again, I must painfully pass onto my readers the availability of this fine piece of Helen Garriott artwork which I have been lamenting for, for a long time! I try to always remind myself to be happy I already own one of her pots!

With her recent passing, these will only become more sought after, harder to find, and costly. So if you ever wanted one, now may be a good time to grab this.

Helen Garriott Auction Spotlight


As someone who is both an Ultima collector and that follows the creators, it was eventual that at some point in my life I’d take a look at Helen Garriott’s work. For those not in the know, this would be Richard “Lord British” Garriott’s, mother.

I LOVE her ceramics! So much so that I spent years watching for them until I was able to get a piece for my own collection at a bargain.

I still watch for them as I would love to own many of them. This one is definitely outside of my budget but it absolutely beautiful!
