Each item has a story and when possible, I hand carried in my luggage from all over the world to bring back to Australia. Some of the items have travelled a long way away and some of the items has been with me for 65 years. I am now retired and need to downsize. I will not be able to buy a similar item again and definitely not able to sell it at the same price. If you buy an item from me it most likely is the only one I have. Not only you are buying an item you are also buying 50 years of experience. Thanks for bidding.' I only accept Paypal. I have a 5 business days shipping policy however if I can send earlier I will. Thank you. I am happy to combine postage. Check out my other items! Be sure to add me to your favourites list!
