I, too, have sent money to this company for a catalog and never received one. What's up?

About a year ago I sent McKinney's $4 for catalogs, one each for me and my father. When the catalogs didn't arrive after a couple of months, I e-mailed the firm and was told that their new catalogs would be mailed out soon.
More waiting. Still nothing.
I recently e-mailed them again to ask what was going on and got no reply.
I would steer clear of this outfit.On January 9th, 2008, Eric_OH added the following:
A letter from Jim McKinney of McKinney's Glassehouse printed in the first quarter 2008 issue of "Gesneriads" (published by The Gesneriad Society) indicates that he's going out of business, at least as far as mail order is concerned:
"I think it best to retire from advertising and shipping as we have been doing"
Hey Jim - I never did get either a catalog or a refund (!)
