We had received a few patents made for the youth gathering for use on our Office of the Bishop for the Southeastern Minnesota Synod, ELCA. We are wondering if we could purchase a few more patents? The one we have is a lovely pottery greens and creams and browns. We would like a few more in that same color family.
I look forward to hearing from you!
