All book and collectors' fairs have been cancelled for the forseeable future, so all book and transport collectors' fairs are cancelled up until the end of August. Etc Fairs have also announced that all their fairs are cancelled until further notice, so this will include the London Summer Book Fair originally due to be held in early June.
This lack of Fair activity means we are concentrating on listing on ABE and eBay the many books & items of ephemera that we have acquired in recent months. Of particular interest is a superb collection of named trains ephemera, including Flying Scotsman and The Coronation. There are some choice items in the collection - last week we sold the engine repairs card for the LNER A4 locomotive 'Sir Nigel Gresley'! We have also been increasing the number of Buy it Now items for sale on eBay.
As book fair activity is on hold, there will be no more catalogues for a while. However, we still have items available in our previous catalogues, which can be viewed here.
Our post office remains open for business so orders are being shipped, albeit we are restricting ourselves to one posting day a week, in addition to which post is taking longer to get through the system due to staff shortages.
Along with the rest of the UK we hope that normal service can be resumed as soon as possible, but in the meantime keep safe and keep your distance.
