The distinguished Petworth Antiques Market welcomes their newest seller to its West Sussex Establishment: Chris Stonor.

Chris has been involved in the vintage toy collectors market for 40 years. He has taken stalls at countless toyfair events since the early 1980s and more recently outdoor pitches at major UK Autojumbles and Classic Car shows. Chris also wrote for the Collectors Gazette for over 16 years.

Under the name ‘Classic Toy Collectibles’, items for sale cover the era primarily from the 1950s to 1990s. These include Dinky, Corgi, Matchbox and Spot-on models to TV/Film related, Subbuteo, Scalextric and tinplate/novelty to Britains plastic figures, transport-related signs, trains, old board games, jigsaws and more.

Chris remarked, “The toy collectibles for sale in my display cabinet are based primarily on online prices, but without the added P&P costs. Therefore, it is overall cheaper for collectors to purchase items from my cabinet than online.” He continued, “Also, if £51 or more is spent at one time, there is a 10% discount.”

Examples for sale include a good range of early TV/Film related models including the rare fluorescent Dinky FAB 1, Corgi 1st series Batmobile and an array of James Bond merchandise; a varied selection of boxed 1-75 Matchbox; boxed Subbuteo football, rugby and cricket sets; and an early Triang tinplate lorry with its original milk bottles. The unit is close to the main desk.
