Ahoy, ahoy dodo lovers everywhere! We shall soon be announcing news as to exactly when we shall be re-opening, but in the meantime here is how we intend to operate once we do. Once we re-open the shop itself, due to the limited space, it will be closed off to members of the public, so please try to use our website to look at what we have in stock and if you can let us know what you want in advance so that we can have it ready for you, as the Gallery may be a bit of a nightmare to negotiate for the forseeable future. This policy is not seen as a permanent situation and will be regularly reviewed.
Just to let everyone know that we are happy to drop off orders in the Shrewsbury area and can still post item out if required, just drop us a line and we’ll let you know if you’re close enough for me to reach you or if not about postage costs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
