It has been a very long time since I have had the pleasure of rummaging through a little curio shop and discovering some hidden treasure.
The pricing in antique centres and collector emporiums seem to have skyrocketed and my haggling skills are a little rusty to say the least. As a matter of fact, I always have a little smile when I see the dealers on TV knocking off a substantial amount when a TV camera and a so called celebrity are present. However, my bargain buy was 15 Boer War magic lantern slides for £10...no haggling required, in my humble opinion a New Year bargain. Apologies for the presentation, I have attempted to photograph a few examples for your viewing.







Happy New Year to you all

Dave......
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Best regards,
Dave

Magical indeed! Always lifts the soul when you can find a bargain, whether at auction or in the dealer's lair!
I see you have the grim but classic Spion Kop slide.
Thanks for posting.
Cheers Steve
