    I haven't been for over 20 years, that was when I used to collect film stills. In those days there were always piles of



    Picturegoer's and Picture Show's on sale. I hear that they are like gold dust now, and if there are any they cost a



    fortune. A friend goes regularly and often picks up some rare home made DVD's.

    Really? Picturegoers are always fairly cheap on eBay - there's a whole bunch listed at the moment for £1.50 each. But it's often the case that stuff is cheaper online than in a shop or fair.

    I am always amazed at what some some sellers on EBay charge for photographs. I have never bought from them, but I check the Stanwyck pages out of curiosity, today they have a photograph for sale at $75.

    Wow - yes, the photo prices are often quite expensive. I was lucky to pick up about five rare Lockwood prints for a few quid in a charity shop! They sell for three times that on ebay (well, they are priced that much anyway).

    Very important nuance, there. Always check how the bidding's going before you rate the price as the value for your own memorabilia. After all "19.99 - No bids" is the same as "1999.99 - No bids" or "99p - No bids". If there's bidding going on, keep watching, otherwise you're just looking at what the chancers are asking.



    I used to go to comic conventions at Westminster; it's the place opposite the abbey, isn't it? Nice atmosphere, nice part of London.

    Also, the value of them - although not necessarily the price, varies a lot depending on whether they are really original photos or modern reprints.



    I have some Notes on Collecting Studio Stills on the PaPAS web site

    That's good; I will go again! I wonder if this one will have more 'tables'?

    Brief Encounter,

    If you're going there check the Underground first!

    When I went to the last Westminster one, on the 13th of this month most of the Circle line was shut down as well as Westminster station and some of the Jubilee line, so the only way to get to Westminster was by the usual bus and the rail replacement ones, this was because of traffic in London on Saturdays and because there was no direct Underground connections!

    It's a good thing the next (April 10th) is in Camden. As it seems easier to get there because the Northern line goes on two routes rather than one.

    Bernard

    Hi Bernard. Yes, I was very annoyed last weekend about the line closures. I walked from Charing Cross. Aren't London Underground wonderful?

    I seem to take it against me, in that any time I go do down there they have closed something!! But Just to the places I'm going!

    So (as I have said) I'm happy In that the next is in Camden Town, so I can do 'Porterbello Road' and either catch a bus or go back to 'Tottenham Court Road' and then switch over to the 'Northern Line'. Sounds a lot more better than Westminster!

    And in Camden you can go to 'Inverness Market' and you don't have to go to Scotland! Also on the way (by bus) from Notting Hill you can do Adeleine (but nowhere near Australia!) But then I've said I've been through Cambridge, Oxford and Sandhurst but they are all streets on the way from Notting Hill to Camden so they are not real places I've been to.

    As I've said "I prefer more the one in Camden" The one this month (Westminster) had less regular people but had more from over countries? Why? I don't know or care! I picked up the Belgium poster to 'Children Of The Dammed' for £5 - sounds okay! Rather than paying over £100+ for a quad
