Picked up 8 pallets of programmes today, bloody long day from Lincolnshire to Devon. Just shy of 500 mile round trip having also visited Exeter's Ikea on the way home to buy another Billy Bookcase for my ever increasing book collection.

Here are a couple of images of the van on the way home, not sure how many I've picked up, but a very varied collection and VERY happy with what I have got, albeit under unhappy circumstances.




Also good to see Sharrowblade fillign his van up as well Smile Nice meeting you today mate, trust you had a safe journey home and are now sat sorting Smile

After all that was said before the auction I'm surprised nobody has mentioned it since Confused

Sadly a very low selling price for most, but I put that down to the fact the programmes were sold in a non-sporting auction and also the location of said programmes.

I personally had to travel 450 miles (round trip) to collect mine and I know Sharrowblade did similiar, so although it didn't put EVERYONE off, I'm sure it did some, hence alot of the pallets going realatively cheaply.

Poor descriptions of the pallets didn't help the sale price either, but at the end of the day if the aim was to clear the vast collection it has achieved that with some return, rather than them being pulped

Was Gordon a dealer and/or collector? As has previously been noted most of the auction appeared to be modern issue.
Did Gordon have more valuable / older items that were disposed of before the auction?

Depends if you consider 60's modern or not ? I'm not sure what others bought but I have boxes of 60's-modern stuff on the pallets I picked up, which basically re-enforces my point of how badly they were advertised and displayed, A box that on the surface may appear to be modern may have a stack of 60's in as well

Well I'm certainly not expecting a pallet of 1920's for £10 !! But happy with what I did get

Was the auction house a poor choice? Definitely

Was the location an issue with no delivery on large lots? Obviously

Were the descriptions of the lots poor? Yes

Would more effort by the sales people have meant more bids? Probably

Did the buyers who picked up hundreds/thousands of programmes on pallets get a good deal at a tenner a go? Absolutely and good luck to them for the effort they had to put in driving many miles to retrieve their items.

Hopefully the people benefitting from Gordon's estate will be happy with what they receive.

Gordon would be happy knowing his stock had gone to some people on here too.

Good luck to those who made the long journey to be involved in the selling of Gordon's programmes. Albeit the proceeds could and should have been a whole lot more. But better than going to landfill and serving no purpose and as a small dealer of a few years experiene I am so pleased to have saved lots from the programme heaven in the sky and in the process made a little and added to my knowledge. There is no such thing as worthless crap as somebody would like some of it and small bundles do occasionally brighten up someones eyes. You never know that in that one box of worthless tat there is the one nugget that has been longed for , for years. No need for toxic comments and jibes. Happy collecting.
