An item which, in our judgement, is not
an economic proposition for commercial repair, but may be suitable for
the amateur repairer.

undertake any restoration before sale, as some clients prefer items
as they are.

If you can travel to Halifax, and wish
to inspect items personally, please e-mail Stephanie
at least a day in advance (larger quantities of equipment, or very bulky
items, will require more notice) so that we can ensure the items you
wish to see are in the shop. We do not have space to carry our full
range in the shop.
