Please note - The Beatles Shop will be closed from Sunday 26th February while we have important repairs done to the premises. The work is expected to take around 10 days. During this time there will be no one available to take phone calls and we will have no access to emails. No staff will be available for valuations. We apologise for any inconvenience. Hopefully we will be sorted, tidied and everything back in place by the 10th March, but please try ringing us first around that time just to make sure we are open. Thank you

Additional Lots - Rare Sketches By Paul McCartney

Over the 24 years the Beatles Shop has been organising the Annual Beatles Memorabilia Auction several unusual and rare items have passed through our hands. This year we are very excited by the discovery of some rare sketches drawn by Paul McCartney, which are expected to sell for over £10,000 next week.

Discovered by the vendor in an attic, the sketches include Beatlesque faces drawn in ink. Each sheet also has writing by Paul on the reverse.

 "This is an amazing find." says Stephen Bailey, shop manager, "People usually think of John as the artistic Beatles but these drawings show Paul's talent for capturing an image in a quick sketch."

Below are a couple of watermarked examples and the full details of the additional lots are available on the Auction Addendum Sheet which can be downloaded by clicking here.
