Closing for now!!!

Due to the growing severity of the situation I think it only right that e-Collectica temporarily close its doors as of today (21st March). We are hoping to be able to get some of our stock home on Monday/Tuesday so that we can at least offer some form of home delivery service for local people. We’ll keep you posted on this.
But for now we will follow the theatre tradition as I have left a solar powered light in the shop window as a kind of ‘ghost light’ so that every night when it turns on it will be a sign to the world that we intend to get through this and return to serve the community once again.
Keep safe and keep those beaks up!!!!!

Magical Myrioramas are now in stock!

We now have the complete collection of Laurence King Publishing’s Magical Myrioramas in stock.

Myriorama originally meant a set of illustrated cards which 19th century children could arrange and re-arrange, forming different pictures. Later in the century the name was also applied to shows using a sequence of impressive visual effects to entertain and inform an audience.

The early myrioramas were cards with people, buildings, and other images on compatible backgrounds, and could be laid out in any order, allowing the creation of a variety of imaginary landscapes.  In their re-invented form they allow players to work together to tell an endless variety of tales within each genre.  A must for story telling game fans.


Here is a picture of today’s restocks to cheer you up.
I know, we’re all heart here.

New bits and restocks!

Did you keep those beaks up? Clearly you did or you wouldn’t be reading this. Well that’s if you’re reading this today, not if you’re reading it a few days late. Be that as it may here they are our latest round of new bits and restocks. I told you we had a few coming in.

Limited Opening Tomorrow

Hello dodo fans, this is to let you know that the shop will be only be open between 12:45 and 13:30 tomorrow as Old Baldy is having to stay at home on flood watch. FLOOD WATCH!!!! YOU MEAN WE COULD ALL BE SWEPT AWAY IN A BIBLICAL TORRENT!!!!!!
Anyway that is the news from e-Collectica central.
I have to get my chocolate stash to safety!!!

2020 Winter Holiday

Old Baldy and Palin will be off on their travels again soon so here are our holiday dates for this Q1.
We will be closed from Friday Feb 7th through to Sat Feb 15th.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but you will get plenty of ‘Where’s Palin’s’ to enjoy.
Where’s Darwin would of course be far better but I’m apparently too big to take along. Damned cheek!
