(slightly modified for the new website 22/09/07)

I am pleased to announce that the amount raised from the sale of this
online catalogue was £155 and will go to :

In memory of Robert Thompson 1964 - 2004


HERE IS A VIDEO shot by Rav at retrokade doing a walkaround.



1) The auction has finished, this stuff is not for sale anymore :)

2) No really, its all sold, you missed out if you didn't go!

3) the prices on this page are not 100% accurate, as either there was confusion at the hammer price, or I just didn't catch the price for one reason or another, or I misheard it.
