The Charing Cross Collectors’ Market is sponsoring an event to encourage young collectors in the fields of Coins, Stamps and Postcards.
Our aim is to show you a side of the business which allows you to develop your hobby into something more.
We are giving you the opportunity to ‘be a dealer for the day’ by providing table space in our Saturday market during the month of August. Bring your duplicates, albums, coins and postcards and you will benefit from advice on value, condition and pitfalls.
Each table is 1.8m x 0.70m and will be at a nominal rent discounted by 85% of £5 for the day.
One or more of your friends can share the table and we have various trade catalogues and magazines to use as reference material. You can take up this offer on one or more of the Saturdays in August.
You will experience the many different characters who regularly attend the market, some of whom are among the foremost dealers in the trade. Your fellow stall holders are happy to ‘show you how it’s done’ and give you tips and ideas to develop your hobby further.
To find out more about this opportunity to ‘dip your toe in the water’ call 01483 283829/07540 144433 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
