From Dinky toys to old school video games, there's a collector for everything, with many spending large amounts of money on rare and one-of-a-kind items.
Whatever you have a collection of, be it model planes, toy cars or retro video games, such collections increase in value as they increase in size, and some will have extremely rare items within them.
So what can you do to ensure that your prized collectibles are sufficiently covered in the event of damage due to fire, floods and accidental damage? Here are a few helpful hints about securing your collection against your home insurance policy:
As Christmas approaches, so does the last Toy auction of 2012, and with over a thousand lots, this is not a sale to be missed!
We have around 150 lots of Model Kits and also some examples of original Airfix artwork.
This 1960's Ichida (Japan) Ford-Gyron remote control car will go under the hammer just in time for Christmas, in our 8th December toy auction.
The car is in great condition for its age and complete with original box.
We recently met friends in Ghent, Belgium which was very worthwhile. Not only was their a flea market on where i bought some 30 Viewmaster reels but also found "Toys & Things" which was a shop in the Antiek-Depot. Great choice, not only in the shop but through the depot as well which consisted of other antique dealers.
My Wife came across these 110mm soldiers. They all bear the name Chas C Stadden. I remember when I was maybe 6 years old, watching my Grandfather sitting in his cottage nearby a canal somewhere in Scotland painting similar scale models. When I saw them I was therefore aware that somewhere there may be a good home for them. So here I am, by your web site. They are in reasonable condition, though showing some signs of being mistreated, some with bent or missing attachments too. However, I can imagine that with a little TLC and a good coat of suitable colours, they will be splendid examples of their heritage. Cana anyone suggest where they could find a good home? Garry
