It appears we have several hundred pounds worth of rock memorabilia in a drawer under our bed!!
A book about the Incredible String Band (anything but incredible in my view) worth £99, a Pete Frame Rock 'n Roll family tree worth £200, a copy of The Face from 1990 worth £75!
Weird what people will pay for stuff.
We ended up with a similar experience to you @Walkerinthesun . Took the stuff over to Ludlow yesterday and he gave us an extra £100 because he made more profit than he expected on the last lot he bought off us!
Interesting little shop, full of vinyl, books & memorabilia, especially badges which he says sell really well. Apparently he could have sold our 'If it ain't Stiff, it ain't worth a fuck' tee shirts for a handsome profit, sadly they went in the recycle bin a few years ago!
I tried a few dealers. 2 told me they weren’t taking new stock cos of the COVID situation, another said he’d do me a favour and give me £200, so best to try a few. Take digital pics of the spines lined up and give a general condition summary, then circulate around a few would be my advice.
I recently disposed of a stack of books on military subjects following a lockdown clear out in anticipation of a move. Sent pics of the spines and they offered £350 all in, subject to inspection which I thought reasonable. Boxed up, they collected and came back and said we’ll pay £450! Amazed! How often would you expect that. If you have hardback books which might have some value might be worth contacting them: Stella & Rose, Monmouth.
I’ve got both Pete Frame original Family Tree books, covers a bit tatty cos I spent hours poring over them way back when. Wouldn’t even consider disposing of them, but am always sceptical of the supposed values on eBay etc. He very recently did a rock family ‘twig’ which was printed up for a Bennett Wilson Poole t-shirt. Other than that I hadn’t heard of him doing anything for donkeys years.
