Sale of equipment. Beekeeper died.
« on: May 12, 2013, 10:24:03 AM »
I am posting this for a lady who contacted us on the FB site.  I have her email address if anyone wants to PM me for it.   



My father was a beekeeper in southern Illinois for many, many years (St Clair County area) - Jim Hendrickson/O'Fallon Illinois. He sold his honey under his proprietary name of Dad's Honey.

I will be arriving there on 5/22 and will be trying to get everything sorted/organized for the Sat-25/Sun-26 availability for beekeepers to come see and purchase. Some of the items that I am aware of are:
bee comb foundation, cut comb foundation, crimp wired, smokers, super sieve, ventilated escape boards, queen rearing outfits, metal frame repairs, frames, extracting frames, assembled special excluders, end bars, frame hives, beeway super, inner covers - 10 frame, observation hives, knife/knives ....(these are all new/unused items).
There are also some tanks/equipment but I am not sure what they are yet, and other items that I did not have the time to note when I was there last.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
