Welcome to the KMA Master Grail Search List! On this page we list all of the hard-to-find “grail” items we’re looking for, so we can keep our eyes peeled for each other when we’re in the shops and online. This is all about community, so let’s help each other find what we want most!  If you want your list here, send it to us! And don’t forget to bookmark this page for future reference.

And of course, if you get one of these items, be sure to let us know so we can update and not duplicate on each other.

  3. I’m happy to report that, after a few years of watching the price fluctuate mostly up & up (as much as $99), I finally found the Bill Nelson 8-CD box set for a reasonable price. An Amazon Marketplace seller had it listed for just under $64, with no tax & free Prime shipping, and I used some AmEx points to get the total down to $39.95. There’s one holy grail item finally purchased. Fingers crossed it’s in “like new” condition per the listing. Hooray for me. I’ve had some very stressful times lately and this was just the pick-me-up I needed.
