Default BVWS Harpenden 22nd Sept. auction/swap-meet

So now that the warm summer is fading in to the past and the darker nights are rolling in, why not stock up the workshop with some projects to keep you occupied for those long autumn/winter evenings?

Yes, it's Harpenden Swap Meet and Auction on Sunday 22nd 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.

Refreshments served throughout the day!

For directions and parking info:

Here's a video of a recent past event:

See you there...

Default Re: BVWS Harpenden 22nd Sept. auction/swap-meet

Just a reminder about how the Bring & Buy works at Harpenden.

We are no longer in the foyer but inside the hall itself, probably on the banked seating area at the back. 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% of proceeds going to the Vintage Wireless Museum. No need for admin for labels, lists etc and the museum takes all the proceeds.

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 (eg your No 3 becomes C3). We can do labeling/listing on the day but it really slows things down for everyone at busy times. Please use the attached listing sheet, to help us.

We close the B&B when the auction starts (approx 1pm) but if you've sold anything you can collect the proceeds at any time. Please remember to collect unsold items well before the auction starts. Unsold donated items are sold off or given away at the end, but do collect if you can!

You've all been fabulously generous in the past, often raising 400 or more on theday, so let's hope for another big donation to the Museum this time.

See you all on the 22nd.
