TO THE OFFERS SUPPLEMENT
250 items are available for offers, CLOSING
DATE FOR OFFERS: 31ST DECEMBER
For newcomers to the "postal auction process",
the "email" bidding process, or those
wishing to re-familiarise, please read the following
The minimum bid considered for any item is £10
unless * is
shown in which case you may make a lower offer
than £10. All offers must be a specific figure.
We do not accept offers "up to ..." or "£5 above
best bid" etc.
Offers may be in cash, unusual programmes (ie.
items which we could use in future offers lists)
or a combination of both. If offering programmes
it is critical that you describe their condition
Please submit bids on a separate piece of paper
to your order form, or use the email bidding process
below. These may be posted or faxed to us. Do
not leave the sending of your offers until the
last moment; there is no advantage in doing so
as we never look at any offers until after the
closing date. In fact, each month several "would
be" successful offers arrive too late to be considered.
This is frustrating for everyone, so please get
your offers is as soon as possible.
Verbal/Telephone bids cannot be entertained. All
offers MUST be in writing. Please do not phone
to enquire how offers are "progressing", as we
simply do not know due to the reasons set out
in paragraph 3 above.
Many customers ask what to bid for certain items.
Prices realised can fluctuate dramatically, and
therefore even the most experienced of us can
be flummoxed - as a general rule though, most
items tend to sell for between 2 and 3 times the
minimum. After saying this however, some items
are sold at their minimum, whilst others in excess
of 20 times above it! An item's value is determined
by it's scarcity and what it is ultimately worth
to it's eventual purchaser.
If your offer(s) proves
successful, you will be notified during the week
after the closing date. We would then ask you
to send your remittance with TWO WEEKS. If you
have not responded or made alternative arrangements
with us, the items may be re-allocated.
