As I do with a degree of frequency, I monitor eBay for chimera African violets I may want to purchase and on occasion any unusual non-chimera African violet that catches my fancy. Well, a few months ago I saw a very high demand for two specific African violets that have brought to their respective sellers some quick cash. On August 24th 2014 Blue Confetti sold for US $152.50. That was one of the highest prices I saw a chimera African violet sold for on eBay in a long time. But in retrospect that was nothing. On September 21st 2014 Lunar, a non-chimera African violet sold for US $255.00! Wow! What is it that strikes a cord with collectors that they must have a specific African violet now? The Blue Confetti is stunning and I was able to obtain it for much less then the original purchase by waiting a few months. This bloom (above image) I believe will strike a cord with many violet growers and collectors. It is exceptional.
I will be the first to admit my photographic skills are substandard. As all the images on this site are original or if I was not involved in producing them I received permissions from the authors. To that end as I have not received permission to post on my blog the original images I saw on eBay, I am providing the links below that take you to Google Images where these pictures reside.
