Default Harpenden 24th September auction/swapmeet

So now that summer is fading in to the past and the dark nights are rolling in, why not stock up the workshop with some projects to keep you occupied for all those rainy weekends/evenings to come?

Yes, it's Harpenden time again, on Sunday 24th September.

Doors open 9.30am, (stallholders 9.00am) 5 entry on the door.
Auction to start about 1pm, with approx. 300 lots!

With many stalls, the Bring & Buy table, you will find a huge selection of vintage goodies, including radio, TV, audio/hifi, communications, spares, valves, test gear, service manuals, ephemera, books and much more!

Plus the BVWS table with all the Capacitor values that you need for vintage gear, plus Deoxit, Bulletin back issues and publications/DVD's.

ALL ARE WELCOME, if you're not a member, you can come in as a guest and see what we're all about! You can even take the plunge and join on the day (You'll need to be a member to bid in the auction) Debit/Credit card payments taken for memberships, auction and BVWS stall items.
Hot and cold refreshments served throughout the day!
See you there!

Here's a video of a previous event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1i2UZBn0pvg

See you there...

Just a question, I was a member of the BVWS many moons ago but lost touch with the society, I guess at the time having too many other club memberships and stretching my time.
I'm now interested in joining again, now having more time and vintage radio knowledge under my belt.
Would I be able to join on the Harpenden meet and be able to bid on items in the auction? I will however be coming on my own. Thanks

Yes you can join/re join on the day Clive. Then a membership number can be issued allowing a bidding card to be printed. Just look out for me and we can sort it for you, I'm usually up on the stage helping to set out the auction items. But make it before 11am please. We can take payment in cash/cheque/card.

BRING & BUY

As usual Jeffrey, Brian, and I will be raising money for the Dulwich Vintage Wireless Museum on the Bring and Buy stall. We're no longer in the foyer but just inside the main hall on the left. You can still leave stuff with us during setting up as we'll have a booking-in table in one of the doors to the main hall.

There are 2 ways to sell stuff on the B&B.

1: Donation with 100% going to the Vintage Wireless Museum. We also like this because there's no admin for labels, lists etc.

2: Sales with 10% commission to the Museum. If you have more than a couple of items it helps us a lot if you can make a numbered list with prices. With corresponding numbered price labels stuck on the items. We then add a serial letter so that your No 3 is different from another No 3. We can do labeling/listing on the day but it really slows things down at busy times. Please use attached listing sheet if possible, to help us

We close the B&B at 1pm due to the auction but if you've sold anything you can collect the proceeds at any time. Please remember to collect unsold items well before 1pm.

You've all been fabulously generous in the past, raising over 400 at the last Harpenden, so let's hope for another big donation to the Museum this time.

See you all there

Jeremy
