Fowey Harbour, Cornwall
Master Craftsman Gold Box, 500 pieces. Very similar to Optimago (did I read they were related, or is it just that Optimago also has a Gold Box line?).  3/5

The Sacred Egyptian Bean, Dr. Robert J. Thornton

Buzz Seating, Inc. v. Encore Seating, Inc., No. 16-cv-1131
(S.D. Ohio Jun. 16, 2017) This case suggests that B&B is quite a broad decision, despite some cautionary statements in the Court’s
opinion—you can avoid B&B preclusion if you sell goods other than
