There is usually something that catches my eye, but a bit of a disappointing selection this time.
By the time you add on the commission, together with the bad exchange rate the $ price is nearly the same as £

I got $1.26 this morning. Hardly a 'bad exchange rate'.
(Unless you can remember the 5/- Dollar!)

PS. I'm UTTERLY amazed that Exhibit Supply Co. copied the Bryan's 'Nudist Colony'!

I have some tentative plans; I don't think they use the US Dollar in Wroxham or Great Yarmouth, though.

Hi all

Just in case someone is thinking of bidding on the two allwins ,there both missing parts inside .

the French one has no coin chutes. All three are missing among other parts.too bad the outside looks fine

the win a Nestles is missing the holder for the Chocolate bars,plus the slide ....other than that I believe it’s complete
