Lofty finds

Mr Crownfolio and I are about to put an offer in on a house without an attic.  This is quite annoying, because it rather ruins our chances of finding a fantastic cache of posters in there.  After the recent set of coach posters, another seller on eBay is profiting from their attic.  Only this time […]

Posters Produce Results

Cecilia Murphy, 1932, est. $1,700-2,000 Although for today’s post, the results we are mostly bothered about come from auctions, as all at once there is a rush of new sales on the horizon and I can hardly keep up.

A life of surprises

Odd times indeed on eBay.  When I pointed out this poster last week, it was more for entertainment than investment value. But it went for £104.  Not so funny indeed.
