Deadline for Auction items approaches.

The deadline for taking items into the auction is fast approaching. Space is limited and once we reach the allocated number of lots we can't take anything else into the sale.

If you have anything you would like to place the auction it's important that you contact Stephen at The Beatles Shop sooner rather than later. We don't take in multiples of items so records and some of the more popular items of original memorabilia are already covered, but it may be worth asking anyway, just in case.

Autographs need to be authenticated which means Stephen needs to see them either in person or via a clear photograph or scan.

You can contact Stephen via email on auction@thebeatleshop.co.uk or via telephone on 0151 236 8066 during normal shop opening hours (Mon-Sat 9.30am-5.30pm, Sundays 10.30am-4.30pm)

Please note - Stephen does not work on a Friday. Any callers who ring or come in on a Friday will be asked to call again on another day.

He is usually in during the rest of the week including Saturdays and Sundays. However he will also be unavailable on 16th, 29th and 30th June.

Any items that do not make it into the Auction this year may be considered for the auction next year. We start taking items for the 2012 Auction from October and the sooner you get items to us the more likely they are to be placed in the sale.

Please check the Sellers Notes and FAQs for further information regarding commission rates and more.
