Welcome to our auctions.
We've been running traditional public auctions of stamps and collectables in Edinburgh since 1977. Unable to continue these due to Covid concerns, we've moved online.
I hope we can take many of our principals with us on this move - honest and competent descriptions, competitive charges, and a policy of bids not being abused.

Our first online sale is this "One Pound Sale" with every lot starting at just £1, and with no reserves. The main purpose is to introduce our existing customers who have perhaps not used this kind of auction before, as well as to give us a practice run with less pressure.
It is not typical of our auctions, which normally have a much bigger range of collections, bulk lots, choice and unusual items etc. Our next auction will follow this within a few weeks, so please sign up for "Marketing Emails" to receive a notification.

Instructions and rules for online bidders;
If you are new to this platform, plase make sure you read the Terms and Conditions - both for EasyLive Auctions and for ourselves. You must register with EasyLiveAuction before you make any online bids.

NB some catalogue prices in the lot listings are from older editions, as some of the work for this catalogue was done from home without always having latest catalogues to hand.
