    Hi Marissa,
    Sent you a PM.
    Saw this display Friday morning, these large Catts. were across the isle and unattended. Nobody knew who was the vendor. SOOOOOOOO figured I'd save some money and we left.
    My Daughter came to visit and wanted to go Sunday Aft. Went again, found the vendor and bought a couple from him, also C. Gaskelliana alba X C Henrietta Japhet) as well as a couple of vandas. The good news is prices were marked down with only a few hours left in the show.
