***NEWS***

We're now back from our main annual holiday - and I'm scramblimg to catch up on a huge backlog of orders - oh joy!! Lovely to be back - in reliable English weather... Rest assured the orders will be dealt with as expeditiously as possible...good excuse to stay out of the rain - the garden will have to wait!

PLATING SERVICE
My current backlog of plating is rising again! 300+ at this time - so please do not send any plating without speaking to me first. Because of travel and holiday commitments, nothing before SEPTEMBER will now be considered. Unsolicited plating, sent without prior contact, will be automatically relegated to the bottom of the heap, in the 'Maybe One Day' basket...

The last EBAY LIST has long since finished - hopefully I will be able to find time to load a new list soon! Just click on the link at the bottom of this page...and HAPPY HUNTING!

LATEST UPDATE: 19.8.2017
