Last few days of the Moving SALE!!!

Just a quick reminder to let you know the shop will be closed from 15th June until further notice. The moving sale is still on and all New Lots List are half price if you order over £100 worth. In other words, if you order £110 worth you only pay £55, plus shipping. And if you are in the UK that is only £3.00 no matter how much you buy!

This is the last of the sales, when the shop returns later in the year, after we have moved home, we will have a whole new look and there will be no more sales, just good prices all year around.

Make sure you are up to date, and informed when the shop reopens, by subscribing to the latest news from the shop HERE.

Finally we are on the move!

This week we have exchanged contracts on our house sale - at last!

This means the shop will be closed for a while while we relocate, lock, stock and Meccano to the Kent coast.

 

The SHOP WILL CLOSE ON 16th JUNE and reopen some time in July. There will be a few changes. The Meccano shop will be simplified into just three sections. the main one being the Lots List. There will also be a section for Ralph's String and a section for Fixings.

MOVING SALE

To make life easier for us to move, you need to buy as much stock as you can!!

To make that easier for you, I have installed the following discounts on the Lots List and Motor City:

20% off all current listings - no minimum spend!

(e.g. Choose £10 of listings and only pay £8)

 

50% off all current listings - when you spend over £100!!

(e.g. Choose £110 of listings and only pay £55)

Sorry, String is not included in the sale and neither are fixings.

New stuff added and lower prices on many items!

I have spent the past few days rearranging the shop and topping up the Lots List. Many items have been reduced and there are lots of new additions. I will be adding more over the coming days and there are a few good multi-buys to be had. There is a cracking deal on modern fixings in the Fixings Section where you will find bulk buys of standard nuts and bolts as well as selected packs of all the Long and Pivot Bolts. All in unused or lightly used condition.

How about some Evolution parts? These have been very popular this week, but I still have plenty left. Also I am adding bulk lots of the smaller parts, the 1 inch Double Angle Bracket packs have been especially popular.

Just click on any of the bold links to go to the appropriate section. Don't forget, shipping will only cost you a maximum of £3.00 if you are a UK buyer and you can pay by credit/debit card or PayPal. You do not have to be a PayPal member to buy from us, see HERE for details. Most orders are shipped the same day (or following day if received late in the day) and securely packed. We are open 24 hours a day, Seven days a week.

Our house move is coming on at a pace, we expect to have a date for the move soon, but that will not be for a few weeks yet. In the meantime, the shop will be fully open and it will be business as usual. When we do actually move, the shop will be closed for a week or two, but I will give more details closer to the time.

For now, take a look at the Lots List and see what's new. Don't forget to keep popping back during the next week as I will be adding lots of new items on a daily basis.

If you have just found this News item from us and want to know what's new, you can subscribe to the list HERE. Subscription is free, you can ot in and out with ease and the only information we will ask you for is the e-mail address you would like it sent to.

Ralph and Sue. 

 

Last day of the Holiday Listings...

HOLIDAY WEEKEND - 3

A few more interesting listings...

There is more to see on the new Lots List today including a few selections of flat and angle girders. These are the last ones, at least I can't find any more at the moment, so once sold that will be it. I have also made up some modern tool kits, for anyone who needs to tackle the modern hex-head fixings or could find the nut-placers of use. 

More listings will be made during the week, but I will not bother you with more of these News updates for a while, so just keep popping back to see what's new.

Anyone making a subsequent order over this holiday weekend will have the shipping cost amalgamated so you will not pay double shipping if you have already made an order since Friday. All orders received since Friday evening will ship tomorrow (Tuesday 28th May). Shipping for the UK is still only £3.00 per order regardless of how much you buy, and remember you don't need to have a PayPal account to shop here, you can pay by credit or debit card by choosing the option on the checkout page - See HERE. If you have any questions regarding stock or payment, please contact me by following the 'Contact us' tab on the black menu at the top of this page.

I hope you all had a splendid weekend and are looking forward to the promise of some nice weather next week.

Ralph.

...And some more new lots...

HOLIDAY WEEKEND - 2

More sorting out...

Day two of the holiday weekend and the new listings continue. I have found the last few 24½ inch Angle girders, once these have gone there will not be any more, ONLY FOUR SETS LEFT AS I WRITE THIS! Lots of other new and relisted items are now being added. Most lots are in the Lots List and can be found HERE.

While you are there, Take a look around the rest of the shop!

New stuff listed at last!

As some of you know, Sue and I are in the process of selling our house, which is why the shop has been a bit quiet of late. Well, we are still in that process! We are getting there but if anybody had told me it would take this long and create so much aggravation, I am not sure I would have believed them. I have told Sue, if she want to move again, she will have to win the lottery, as I am never selling another house!

I put the restocking of the shop on the back burner for a while, thinking we would be all done and dusted by now. I have now decided that I can't just sit here waiting, so I have started to restock the Lots List with new items. There are a few lots there already and I will be adding to them over the next few days, but don't hesitate to buy anything you see now, as most of the listings are one-offs. There are also bargains to be had in the Clearout Bargains section with all prices reduced by 20% with no minimum spend required.

I have also re-listed a couple of items in our Multi-Pack Parts section. I will be adding more listing in this section over the coming days, as well.

Don't forget, our shipping to the UK is still capped at £3.00 no matter how much you buy. We have kept our shipping prices the same, even though Royal Mail have increased theirs. 

I will have a lot of one-offs and specials on offer this week as I sort out some of the more obscure items. Lots more to come so grab a bargain while they are still available!

Ralph.

 

Now 20% off and NO MINIMUM spend!

Here we are at the end of April and I can't believe we are still in the process of moving house, We are still on the paperwork stage, after all sorts of nitty-gritty has been sorted out, hopefully we are nearly there. I have moved the remaining stock from the original lots list into a new department: CLEAROUT. There you will find all lots are discounted by 20% with . There is NO MINIMUM SPEND! The shipping, which if you live in the UK, is a flat £3.00 no matter how much you order!

Talking of shipping, we WILL NOT be increasing our shipping costs, even though Royal Mail have increased theirs!

Don't forget to look at the other departments - All of which will be added to over the next week or so. The whole shop plan is to be found HERE.

There are still a few Constructor Quarterly magazines left so don't miss out, once they have gone, I have not got any more at the moment. See what's left HERE.
