So you want to sell your grandfather’s old desk, careful you might get yourself into trouble! :-D

Hello Skinlovers.

I  love antiques and I know a lot of you people out there do too.

here’s a little heads up if you want to sell wooden desks and antiques, you might suudenlly run afoul of the law, there is a law in place that protects endangered flora too (yes you might know about the fauna one but the flora one is more oscure).

According to CITES

For example you need a certificate to sell certain kind of wood objects made from some of these rare woods (Rio Palisander one of them it was used to make desks) and the provenance is quite immportant. too.

I wrote this as a little caveat a sort of heads-up so that everyone can pay attention to the little details you usually over-look when you purchase or sell things.

Here are some examples of Rio Palisander just in case you were wondering:

That’s me out of here for now.

Be responsible recycle re-purpose with a conscience and also do not ppromote and industry without a conscience.
