12 May 2020   My latest Set Price Sale of unsold Blues, Jazz and Hot Dance 78s  from my last auction list is also now live and they sell fast!!  Don’t delay checking to see what’s available -  CLICK HERE.  The really good news for non-UK buyers is that unlike eBay, we don’t charge you your local Sales Tax/VAT/GST on purchases!

We’re keeping calm on carrying on!  To satisfy all those collectors stuck at home we’ll be continuing to offer our regular selections of great 78s via both eBay and here with our thrice-yearly auctions.  The only major difference is that despatch and delivery will be slower than usual, as we’ll only be visiting the post office once a week, plus in-transit times appear to be longer than normal.
