Garage Clearout

Hi there,

We’re having a bit of a garage clearout at the minute, and we’re putting a bunch of stuff we no longer need on eBay over the next few weeks.

Please visit our accounts here and here, to see if you can pick up a bargain.

Things we’re selling are a couple of mountain bikes, parts for a CG 125 W motorcycle that we’re breaking down, a Brinkmann smoker, a car roof bag, an igloo cool box and some nice garden lounge chairs, amongst lots of other things.

The loft is next….!

Sheffield Wednesday 1896 picture – help request!

Mrs Zoo Keeper was working through some old family photographs last night, and came across what seems to be a very old one, backed on what appears to be hardboard. There are actually two pictures mounted on the board, on one side a seated lady with a stood gentleman, on the other a team picture from the Sheffield Wednesday 1896 English Cup win at Crystal Palace on 18th April 1896.
