Last month we sold more than 400 bikes from the old stock hidden above Bache Cycles in Lye, near Stourbridge (West Midlands).
This month we are selling the old toy stock including a 40ft truck-load of Corgi, Matchbox, EFE, Hornby, Lima and Mainline models!
The shop had been running as a toy and bicycle shop for decades - it is now under new management as a modern shop selling state-of-the art mountain bikes.
Unfortunately the owner of the premises, David Bache, recently died - sadly leaving no relatives. As such, his estate is being sold off without reserve - with the proceeds going to charity as instructed in his will.
The amount of toys he still had stashed away upstairs above the shop was astonishing - it took us one load in a large lorry followed by multiple trips in one of our vans to get it all back to our Dudley saleroom!
This massive haul of toys will be sold at our Toy & Model Railway auction on Thursday 3rd September.
