Default Rusbridge's Auctions: 4 for 2019

Confirmation (at last) of the Down South dates and location, to go with the Up Norths already booked. Dates for 2019 now confirmed as:

13th January (Sunday) Hoghton near Preston. PR5 0SG sat-nav.
7th April (Sunday) Radnage near High Wycombe. HP14 4DJ sat-nav.
9th June (Sunday) Hoghton near Preston. PR5 0SG sat-nav.
20th October (Sunday) Radnage near High Wycombe. HP14 4DJ sat-nav.

Over to you, then. We need buyers and sellers. If you're coming to the auction, why come with the boot of the car completely empty? Surely those sheds and garages could be tidier? We have some of the very best buyers in the kingdom on our Christmas card list. A sprinkle of nice items already entered for the first two auctions of the year, but only just a start. A ham radio rig and a box of valves do not, on their own, make a viable action.

Still time to book a Cornish Weekend Auction for September. B&B and hotels still open in September but much cheaper than the summer holidays. Eden project just up the road. If you're "up for it" let me know, but remember we will really desperately need some items to sell. Projected location quite close to Bodmin, right where the A30 from Exeter meets the A38 from Plymouth.

Gloves off, down to business!!
Rob.

Do you need to be a member of any club to attend these auctions? Or are they open to all collectors?

Rob's auctions are open to all, and have no connection with the BVWS, Radiophile or anything else.

It is great to see another alternative, covering different areas of the country.

You need to be able to eat cornish pasties!

Actually, you don't have to be able to eat Cornish pasties to come to one of our auctions. I know this because I can't eat those particular ones myself. They're finished with an egg-and-milk wash, and I'm allergic to milk!

Apologies for a minor hi-jack of this thread, but those about this year's auction are now closed.

Towards the end of the original thread, Rob said he would publish the results shortly, but I can't find them on the web page. Did these go up, and if so where can I find them please?

Those results are still on my computer, as is the updated web page, but neither are on the internet yet. Will do something concrete about that as soon as possible. Won't be this week. One of my other "lines of business" has finally done something and I'm up to my neck in bits of old Hornby O Gauge toy trains.

They are not toy trains! Models surely?
I have an ex neighbour who has or had one of every item made, in both left and right hand way, that's a lot of tin plate.
Are you on track then Rob?

Toy, model, or real, railways are OT for the open forum.

Despite this, good luck Rob, I'll attend when I can.
