All book and collectors' fairs have been cancelled for the forseeable future, so the Bath Book Fair and the Oxford Book Fair will not be going ahead in April, neither will the Tobaz Transport Collectors Fair in London in July. 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 Pullman and other named trains ephemera, including the Golden Arrow. The Pullman items finished on eBay last week and the Golden Arrow items start this week! 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.
