Memory Collector Vials up for auction!
There are 30 of the small ones, 24 of the tall ones.
The tall ones I bought new, but I added the labels, hand wrote the numbers, and aged both the labels and the corks to look more like the vintage small ones. I left the labels on, but they’re easy enough to remove. [Peel em off and use a little oil to get the sticky stuff off. Easy peasy. I can do it myself though, if the winner prefers.]
The small ones are old watch makers vials and have their original labels.Not sure how easy those labels will be to remove.
They somehow manage to be both fragile and sturdy at the same time. I’ve broken a few just trying to put the corks back in, yet i’ve dropped others onto hard surfaces that didn’t break. *shrug* [Broken ones have been thrown away, i’m not selling anything broken!]
I’d prefer to sell them together, but in case people don’t want to buy both sizes, consider the tall ones one auction and the small ones another. If you’d like to place a bid on all of them, give me a separate bid for each size. Like with my print auctions, the highest bid by the time the auctions are over wins.
Each auction begins today, April 9th, and ends at 12am EST April 13th. So you have the rest of today, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday to place your bid[s].
There will be added shipping, 6$ for US buyers. For international buyers it will depend on what you win and where they are going. Email me if you’d like an estimate before the auction ends.
To place your bid[s] contact me via [this email], and specify which size[s], what your max bid is, as well as if you want to be notified of being outbid.

I know, i know, i already posted these. I had to re-edit them though, and this set more closely resembles what they look like in person. You can see my other post [here] for more info on these.
[p.s. new post on the blog [here] “process in progress”]
Gender and age don’t really matter, beyond that you’ll need to be 18 or older. Honestly, the answers to my questions are more important than what you look like as they’ll guide me in completing the final portrait.
Location wise, I live between Daytona Beach and St Augustine, Florida, and for at least right now will be shooting the portraits in my home. I’m hoping at some point this can become a little more flexible, especially for those in other parts of Florida and south Georgia.
If you’re hoping for images done by me that are more conceptual and weird like my usual work, this isn’t for you. That isn’t to say the finished product won’t be sort of that way, I just can’t guarantee who/what images will end up fitting into the final series. And you’ll only get to see the complete finished product if it actually goes that far with your portrait, and you most likely won’t get to see it in its entirety [just a sneak peak] before it’s ALL done. [Though I’m fine sharing the plain, simple portraits we shoot.] I offer free prints to everyone who works with me, and that applies to this too.
Depending on time and whether you fit in with some of my more typical work, we can shoot other things along with this, but I can’t guarantee that option for everyone.
I know this is all a little vague, but if you’re interested we’ll talk more before the actual shoot, and most, if not all of the “interview” process, can happen via email.
And again, i’ll be working on this for a while, so our shoot can happen 3 weeks or 6 months from now. Time wise things are pretty open.
Ok, that’s all for now I think. If you have any questions or if you’d like to participate in this, you can email me at portraits @ caryndrexl.com
