Todays a special day for me today. Its my SWF 1st Anniversary.

Ok, I have more modern than vintage currently.

However finding items and good value I think is at the heart of some other collections too.

So much more planned on the horizon but wanted to post how great its been on here and how many fellow collectors I owe a great big thanks to. So many great people met and some I have not had the privilage to meet face to face yet.

It all started here so thanks Edd and all the other contributers for making it such an awesome place to be!

Hi i'm Russ

Hi all
I've recently been left a starwars collection that I now wish to sell. I am now doing some research as to what I've actually got.

Cheers

Ey up all,

I have been a lurker on the forum for the last couple of years now, gradually building up a focused collection on Evilbay and the FB groups. Have used the SWFUK for a lot of cross referencing, and hoping to gte more involved in the ongoing discussions to further my knowledge of the hobby and its endless facets!!

Started collecting again after leaving the hobby and selling my original collection back in 2000. Focusing on what I thought initially would be an easy choice on mail away offer mailers, and all related items. How little I knew then lol!! the breadth of this 'niche' focus is crazy. Still lots to learn but hope to pull to eventually pull together a collection with items from all of the vintage markets. Baby steps!

Attached is a group shot taken recently of the mail away items Ive snagged to date, not included are supporting offer adverts / cardbacks / catalogues / manufacturer letters etc.

All the best and MTFBWY!

Chris
