This Sunday 26th February : Vintage Amusements

Thursday night update:
Mad winds in Leamington Spa today! lots more info added to the catalogue inc measurements and further details of many items... still a few more to do in the morning, then on schedule to have the catalogue finished late Friday afternoon ready to download and print - view catalogue progress - and check back again Friday for more updates!


So this first Vintage Amusements Auction of 2017 is looking pretty impressive! - over 80 Vintage Slot Machines, including a nice batch of barn-fresh restoration projects all offered WITHOUT RESERVE, the Clock from the BRYANS FACTORY, lots of nice small Fairground Signs, loads of interesting advertising items including fabulous Corona Pictorial Enamel Sign, etc. etc. Don't miss this one!

Email backlog - apologies if you're waiting on a reply - bit of a backlog as usual before auction, will be having a blitz once the catalogue is all finished off, as most emails are queries for measurements or further details of items etc. in any case.

Faster Faster Faster!

We've re-written the code that powers the Auction Catalogues and Auction Results pages such that they now load noticeably faster.

The pages have been well tested before going online, but if you do notice any problems (or crashes!) please let us know so we can check the code again.

British Treasure, American Gold

Last year Storage Hunter's Jesse McClure came to the Elephant House to try and buy some amazing stuff to send back to his shop in California for his new series British Treasure, American Gold.

The episode featuring us aired 26th October, and featured us for 10 minutes or so. The series got a great reception, and some episodes have already been repeated, so keep an eye out on Quest if you missed it first time around... good interesting series!
