Heather (Loganberry), Lian (Rowangate) and SarahY (Blackthorn Stud) have all had Maxeys from Brian and been very pleased with them, I'm sure they wouldn't mind a PM to ask them about the quality if anyone is thinking of buying.
Juliet, are you entering anything at the show? If so and you have to ring Terry Sales to do so, just let him know how many and of which type you'd like and I'm sure he'll put them to one side with your name on. You can pay on the day
I was overjoyed with my Maxeys! They are absolutely perfect. As an artist and a perfectionist I am very, very quick to find fault (even though it makes me unhappy when I do find it :lol: ) and they really were perfect. Exactly built to spec. Brian himself was a joy to deal with, courteous and thoughtful throughout. And the prices are awesome really. Having tried to make these myself, I would have paid double for someone else to do it :lol:
Sarah, I agree. After I placed my order, I was pretty astonished at how quickly it arrived, how expertly his Maxeys were designed and built, and how little they cost, especially considering they were sent all the way from England to the US. To top it all off, Brian was extraordinarily helpful to me, answering any questions I had very quickly and thoroughly. I think I also would have paid double. I wonder if we're going to get him swamped with orders now!
I can recommend him. When I first contacted him he made a prototype which I compared to a maxey of Lisa Groves. I found the workmanship to be good quality and Brian a very pleasant gentleman to deal with.
I have a cunning plan (no turnips though, Blackadder fans) about these Maxeys. Brian originally contacted me to see if there were sales tables at shows as I think he was going to try and attend. I said that there weren't sales tables but that I'd ask if we could display some and take orders at Enfield. If it is a success, I plan to ask someone attending Enfield who will be going to the next NMC show (Preston) to take the remainder with them to sell there. The Maxeys will then hopefully go show to show until they are sold, when I'm sure Brian will be happy to supply more. That way experienced fanciers and novices alike will be able to get Maxeys easily. Simples!
No i had hoped to make it in March but I couldnt make it, I also had some issues with my mice not breeding so I had nothing to show, luckily I ahve a few rumpwhites now which just about make the grade.
