They are in the Vernon area.I am currently selling 3 bikes. Here are links to the Kijiji adds. If that is not good enough, let me know what you need. I’m not wild about the idea of shipping them. It would be expensive and a hassle. So I prefer the buyer pick them up. Shipping is not absolutely out of the question, but I am not absorbing the cost, so it makes the purchase price higher.

Classic Victoria Jersey wantedThis is a stretch, but I am interested in buying a Club jersey issued several years ago with an aboriginal design on it. I think only members from the Island had access to these jerseys. I wonder if anyone still has one – they were beautiful! I am looking for a medium or large size to fit a medium-sized body – usually 10 in regular ladies clothing.Please let me know if you think this could be included in the marketplace.Thanks very much.Holly Evans
