I am now closed until 10am the 4th January. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your interest and support this year. It has been extremely encouraging during a difficult time for most of us. It sets me the challenge in 2010 to continue to find interesting items at realistic prices. . .
As I head off to Washington DC this Christmas, I wish you all a very happy Christmas and blessed New Year.
If you have queries whilst I am away, then please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will attempt to respond as quickly as possible.
