Propstore’s Super(b) Auction 2022

Propstore’s annual UK auction is almost upon us, due to start in London on 3rd November 2022. And wow! do they have some amazing items on offer this year!

With our annual pilgrimage due,  myself (Alexei Lambley-Steel), Martin Lakin & Andy Hanton will be travelling down at the end of October to see these incredible items in person at Propstore HQ. Gracious hosts Stephen Lane and Tim Lawes are always so very welcoming and accommodating, especially when we want to compare and contrast items side by side, they truly are Super Hosts! and Boy, have they done it again this year!
