About Spa Cottage Collectables
I’ve always been a collector ever since I can remember. The past intrigues me, I believe that it’s important to be aware of where you come from to know where you are going in life (deep). As a child holidaying in the Bournemouth area at my auntie and uncle’s guest house “Clarendon” in Boscombe, I had just as much fun rooting through the old junk shops that lined the High Street as I did playing on the beach. If I found something I liked my next task was to convince my parents that it was a sound investment and that they should buy it for me (at seven or eight I had no income of my own…). The precious item would something like a campaign medal, a military cap badge or maybe an old pond yacht – regarding the latter, my love of boats big and small stays with me to this day.
To the present, I’m happily married but I do get nagged about my ‘clutter’, our home decor is definitely not minimalist! So, this brings me to offer some items from my collections or sale (missus 1 me 0). Marital harmony restored!
I will endeavour to list all my stock but it’s a lot of work and I have a full time job. So my intention is to add some pictures of stuff I’m yet to list on this page – you might see something that tickles your fancy…
Regarding vintage motorcycle spares, the picture on the left shows a box of unsorted Amal 276 series carburettors (amongst other things). This box is typical of many that are yet to be looked through and catalogued. So please ask. The listed stock items will continue to grow as and when I have the time!
