It’s really easy.
Below this box where you type are two tabs, one says attachments.
Click this, then add files, chose the files/pictures that you have stored on your device and they will be added into the text box.
Good luck :D as I would like to see them.

Being able to by them all in one go was a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one. Cheers Andy.

A couple of weeks worth of new acquisitions, all vintage UK stock. NFS.

Black Falcon ESB pillowcase; Hayjax Ewoks pillowcase; SW cinema programme; about 35 Panini Jedi sticker wrappers; Chad Valley retailer catalogue; catalogue page featuring Scanlite posters and lampshade, with Jedi stickers; Fan Club paperwork; Acamas Vader costume; Jedi printing plate of unknown origin; and a set of bootleg 70s key rings. An odd mix of items but I’m happy with them!

Congratulations, they are in great condition, are they sealed?
I’ve never collected these, but they are starting to apeal.
They aren’t too big and are easy to display, nice.

Cheers guys. Poncho, I’ve seen a photo of your carded key rings, that’s a fantastic item. I’m pleased just to have finally found a loose set!

Call me crazy, but I recently got my hands on this 1950's swivel top vacuum and it still works like a champ even though it's over 60 years old. (Insert rant about how they don't make stuff like they used to). I'm sure my fellow geeks know exactly where this comes from.

For those that don't know yet, this is the same model of vacuum that was used for Artie Deco in Hardware Wars. Given it's very pink color, It could easily pass as Artie's girlfriend in Hardware Wars 2, The Steamtroopers Strike Back. :)

After researching colors a bit, I tracked down the appropriate paint for this project. So far it's coming along pretty well (though this paint runs way too easily and had to sand it down a couple times). Not perfect, but neither was the original so I'm pretty pleased with it so far.

If I was smart enough with electronics (which I am not), I would love to make this bad boy remote controlled at some point.

Nice collection of random vintage, that printing plate could possibly be a 'hot foil stamping plate'.
