Edition 38

Hi all!

As much as we know you all love hearing all about what we've been up to, we also know that you're probably in search of a BARGAIN!

Well, there are bargains to be had.  Not only on our extensive website (where we are more than happy to negotiate with our newsletter subscribers) but also in our

eBay Store!

Didn't know that we had an eBay store?  We've had one for a while that goes under the name of Original Auspickers Collectables.

Our eBay store exists to offer items at auction to people around Australia and the World!  We also list a few items that we have a lot of at "buy now" prices, like the reproduction oil bottles.  But it is mostly auctions.

We offer automobilia, collectables like rare records, coins and banknotes, cigarette and trade cards, rare badges, militaria, toys, etc - generally anything that is small enough to be posted and so delicate that it can't survive Australia Post's handling!

The best news is, we start our auctions at well below recommended retail price!  Once someone bids, the auction is live with no reserve price and the item will sell at auction.

Here's an example - we currently have 3 Shell Household Oil tins on auction, along with a Shell token.

The auction has started well below rrp and the current bid is $20.50 for the lot (of course this may change after publishing this).

You can follow our eBay Store and receive notifications when new items are offered.  Payments can be made via Paypal or bank deposit.  Of course cash on pick up is available.

Have a look.  You just might find the bargain you've been looking for.

Hi all!

Welcome to another instalment of the (sporadic) How Bazaar newsletter!

Nothing stands still here at How Bazaar.  Following another successful venture up the big road to Motorclassica in October, our return always gives us an opportunity to rearrange and revamp the shop.  This not only keep things clean and fresh, it also gives Andrea and I a little time to think about the business.

To that end, we've made a range of spaces available for new stallholders within the shop.  The details are all here:


If it's not something you're looking to take up, you may know someone who is looking to join Geelong's best collectables store.  If so, send this on to them or get them to contact us.

Motorclassica is not only an opportunity to bring our wares to Melbourne, it is a fantastic place to catch up with with old friends and to make new ones.

Here's some items we recently received that weren't at Motorclassica, so you may have missed them!

Remember that we will put things up first on our Facebook page, How Bazaar PS.  If you're not following this page then we'd suggest that you do.  The best items go quickly and it takes a day or two for us to get them up on our website.

Of course we know not everyone is purely interested in garagenalia (hello Maureen!). So here's a few other things that have come in.  Did we mention that Christmas is on the way!

While you're planning your festive season, keep in mind the we do have Gift Certificates and getting one couldn't be easier.  Come into the store, email us or phone and we can send out a personalised gift certificate for any amount you want (min $20).

Till next time, cheers,

Peter & Andrea
