This site is about a collector of die-cast models & unique numismatics hoping to exchange with people with same interests.
This sites purpose.
Using my eye for the unusual, with a little bit of haggling & good luck, I've managed to acquire the collectables presented on this site. These items have been sourced over the years from various places such as collectors fairs, car boot sales, eBay etc.
Now these niche collectables are in need of rehoming. My home needs more room & this hobby has run its course. The purpose for collecting has always been as a type of investment & now the cost living is such.
So using the skills & knowledge that I've learnt through the Open University with my knowledge of collectables, I've set up this website to help in this rehoming process.
This site is also a type of assignment recommended to gain CPD points with the Open University. The development of this site has given me the tangible experience of the knowledge & skills in which the Open University has, & continues to provide (see the bottom of this page for further info).
I could easily sell these items through eBay or at an auction, but I've decided that I want to experiment instead with my very first website & dedicate it more towards Manx clientele.
I sense that this site will not only appeal to collectors, but to people wanting to buy a small office toy or a tourist looking for a Manx souvenir. Perhaps they would make good presents between couples; or for friends & family. Certain items on this site will have a nostalgia feel to older generations.
Maybe you would like to pick up on a old hobby? Or perhaps you would like to start collecting die-casts models?
There's lots of different interesting retro & vintage objects that are of good collectable quality.
I have researched my items & I've presented them with a brief descriptive breakdown of their composition & some accompanying contextual information & facts.
I recommend you research my items for yourself before contacting me. Just do a simple eBay search then find the advantage sold price in the filters.
The Price indications shown in the "Menu & Gallery" section are priced at the average sale price on eBay. These prices are only a guideline & can be negotiated. That's roughly price that I paid for them. I'll always try to have the most competitive price anytime as it is possible. Combined postage 'at cost' offered for multiple purchases.

I've been a member/buyer through eBay since 2016. My eBay ratings should help indicate my trustworthiness.
These items are "only worth what someone's willing to pay" so please haggle & barter with me.
I may also consider an honest swap should you have something unique you want to rehome, just contact me for a chat.
I collect vintage "Dinky Diecast Toys". Should you have one & would like to do a swap?
Refunds are not a problem.

Once I've departed with my small collection this site will have achieved its objective & as such, this site will then cease to be.

Updated skill base.
"Below are O.U. digital badges which I achieved (with separate certification) as part of online, part-time, introductory & intermediate 'Openlearn' courses. These courses were done through the Open University & four of these courses were endorsed by "Continuous Professional Development" (CPD) Accreditation. These were done prior & during the creation my website with the successful completion of these courses providing me with 96 CPD points.
These 96 CPD points go along side 30 Credits I've previously earned for my completion of the Open University's "Y031, Art & Languages Access module".
But more important then points or credits, these courses have provided me with valuable skills, new insights & useful information. Furthermore, I would recommend these courses to anyone wanting to develop their own website"...
