Llandudno on eBay

If theres one site worth a visit from time to time, then it has to be eBay. Day in day out, 365 days a year, people from all across the globe list items of interest, one market which is doing very well these days is the collectables market. If you type in Llandudno, you can find anything from postcards, to photographs, to larger items like this Ginger Beer bottle for example. Items can sell typically from anything between a couple of pence, to a couple of hundred pound, depending on the interest as there are some real enthusiastic collectors out there. During my height of my collecting, I found some real gems on there, from glass slide/negatives pre 1900, antique dishes showing images of the resort, holiday brochures and much more and now have quite a comprehensive collection. Ebay can become quite addictive and expensive, so budget wisely and be specific in your area of interest. Even if you don't buy, it's great to just have a look!

  1. We used to dig-up old bottles like that on the old refuse dump off Maesdu Road. Clear glass ones too with marbles in the top.
