The way I was going to do it has been scuppered by the way Flickr has been changed which means the searchable photo album style isn't going to work anymore. Plans are afoot to launch a new website once I stop arguing with HMRC about paying VAT on things that they won't allow me to charge VAT on. Yeesh it's non-vatable so why do I have to then pay 20% VAT on all of it going back 2.5 years but was not allowed to charge people the VAT in the first place :shock:

rant over
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

The problem with the guide is that Trish only issued pages for a peice that was discontinued which means that there are lots of gaps. Also it was meant to be updated regularly but I think only 2 updates ever came out before Clarecraft went bust. The database I have is complementary to the book as it includes the missing figures and has quite a lot of photos but doesn't go into the level of detail of the book.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I think mine also has the cards painted, this is a link to a large photo of the peice where you can just see the cards on the table. I'm at work so cannot check the database or my peice closely

Yes I do have one and it made £569.51 which is probably about right for one without the box or tent card. I think it was originally £250 standard retail when I bought it although I got a discount from the shop as a regular customer

They tend to go for between £750 and £850 although I saw one that only made £500 so somebody got a bargain
