FAQs


Where are you based? - I am based in the South of London, England. Junction 6 of the M25 is just over 10 minutes away by car, the centre of London only 40 minutes by train and Gatwick airport about 30 minutes by train.

Where do you send to? - I can send to just about anywhere if you can afford the cost. The most popular destinations are the UK and the U.S.A. Occasionally items get sent to some of the more exotic locations in Europe.

How quickly will I receive my items? - If a courier can be arranged, within a few days; however do note that this isn't a giant warehouse with teams of people available, it is just me and I have to fit things around other work. My "real" job involves long, often irregular hours and trips away, but I try to keep one day a week free as a "courier day".

How can I pay for an item? - I accept PayPal, UK buyers are welcome to pay in cash and collect, please give me some notice if this is your intention. I plan to be rolling out some "Pay Now" buttons in the near future. Till then please send an email, leave a comment, or contact me through the OneOneTwo Facebook Page, if there is anything you see and want to buy.

What about larger items, like flight cases? - The largest item I have sent was a Barco projector which weighed 19kg. However such items are not cheap to send within the UK, let alone further afield. As a rule, anything over 1 metre long or weighing more than 10 kg can be a problem.

Do you have an on-line shop? - If I had a constantly replenishable inventory this would be worth my while to set up, however I don't. Consider what's available to be more of a rummage / boot sale.

How long have you been selling stuff? - I have been quietly trading excess stock for the last 40 years, the first item I ever sold was my Action Man collection when I was 9 years old and since then I have never looked back. It is so much easier to find buyers now than before the Internet was ubiquitous!

When will there be fresh stock for sale? - I have no plans to replenish my stock, when the stores are finally empty this blog will have served its purpose and I intend to move elsewhere. It is an often used cliche but... "When it's gone, it's gone".

What will you do then? - I have plans to sell up and radically downsize, I would like to relocate to continental Europe which in many ways has been my spiritual home for the last 25 years. You can get an idea of what I will be doing here
