send me $10 by paypal and ill request you as a friend member. Will only cost 15 to 20-25$ max
Bullet points on BM:
You sign up for free
Register for $50 - one off fee for lifetime membership this allows you to buy, but not sell yet
If someone is willing to invite you, some or all of the registration fee is waived, but that inviting member is "responsible" for you if you start trying to scam people, or are just not too good of a person to deal with (not to say you will be, but that's the risk the inviting member would have to take).
Also if you are a glassblowing artist, you can jump though a few hoops and get registered as an artist for free.
Once you are able to buy things, you will be a "starter subscriber" most of your posts will be delayed pending mod approval.
After you've bought a few things (I think you need either 3 or 6 pieces of positive feedback on transactions [not "likes" on posts]) you become a "bronze member" which is basically the same as starter, but your posts don't need mod approval.
You can then pay $10 to upgrade to a "silver member" which allows you to sell up to 4 items at once.
I'm not sure what you can do as a gold member, but I don't think they are taking any more gold members, and they seem to mostly be shops IIRC.
And yes, it's totally worth the $50 (if you plan on making multiple glass purchases that is, if its only gonna be a 1 off purchase, it may or may not be worth it.)
Thanks for the info on boromarket. Having just registered this morning, you answered most of the initial questions.
Oh, fun fact:
IIRC, my EFS gridded donut was my first purchase on BM.
I was super stoked with the price then, and the sale on now has another $50 value to it (I paid extra for the blasting)
If you've got any inclination of picking up an EFS piece (before he comes where with a generous FC discount *wink-wink-nudge-nudge* ), the value on this sale exceeds the cost of a BM membership, so it would have already saved you more money than the signup fee on the first purchase.
If it is kosher I can post the details here as well as the 24 stock images available? I am still not completely familiar with what is cool? Mostly my fault as I have not had time to investigate.
I don't what is ok, but there was a post from momofthegoons earlier in this thread as follows:
I'm sure vtac can advise you as to what is cool.
We're looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful work.
I have sent correspondence. Just waiting to hear back. Thanks and I hope to be a valuable member to the forum.
You'd be best off waiting until you have approval as a manufacturer/retailer before you post the pics.
I saw them on your BM thread, your blasting is
Correct. I thought that was excessive at first, but you can easily pay for it with the money you save on glass.
What? I don't get it.
I'm looking forward to seeing more of you're stuff too. I really like it when the artists become involved in the forums.
Oops, that was meant to say "before he comes here..." I was just joking about him having a super duper FC discount, and vaguely referencing monty python
OMG I was joking.
That smiley would have made it clearer
Well then, the last line of that vid seems to apply to me then
Looks like you've got the special wrench next to your name now, EFS. Let's have some details and pics on the $200 sale!
I don't know how to add pictures on here?
We have a thread with instructions on how to do it here.
Hmmm... seems EFS is truly not a computer-centric guy and is busy blowing glass.
Anyone with BM access want to volunteer 5 to 10 minutes of work to post the details and pics? EFS now has manufacturer status and has said he wants the information here for us, so no feathers should be ruffled...
I'll volunteer to do the imgur uploading and linking if someone wants to email me the pics so they don't have spend as much time doing it...
I have access to BM, but you may want to contact EFS first to see if he wants to make the sale public.

edit: lol. speak of the devil and he appears.
