aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh !! I'm away on the auction day with my wife for a long week-end, so NO chance of coming along. Pitty, would like to have had an excuse to buy one. (yes only one, as I am still happily married after 32 years)

Change of date

Postby JC » Thu Feb 15, 2007 11:47 pm

Don't panic Arrgee! For reasons that will be fully explained in the next issue of the magazine, it looks as if our next event will be Sunday 22nd April, and not 13th May. When I am able to positively confirm this, I shall post in this thread, and the MMM forum. I should have positive news sometime next week.

tenntants auction

Postby jimmycowman » Sun May 13, 2007 12:02 pm

Hi all,
Went to the auction at Leyburn to try and buy the traveling crane. Boo-hoo, went for too much. All prices seemed very high, came home with nothing. £600 for Byrans Clock (not the best condition), £650 for a Playball allwin (locked up so you couldn't see inside), all plus 15% buyers' premium +VAT. Hey there's plenty of money up North. Where can a buy a crane??? I see there's a Byrans crane at the Salisbury auction but that's going to fetch too much.

....... 15% buyer's premium + vat eh?

Well the good news is that Jerry & I intend to keep our auctions at 5% premium, so long as the events don't actually leave us in the red.
