Hi,

A friend of mine is visiting London and needs to buy The Complete Works box set. Does anyone knows the address of a shop selling this box for a reasonable price?

Even if anyone did, by the time your friend got there it could have been sold, or the dealer could have put his price up.

Meanwhile, 5 other stores that people say "no, don't have it", may get offered one the following day.

Plus, isn't part of the fun of collecting exploring all those nooks and crannies? I used to have a bunch of areas I'd go to in London - start at Notting Hill Gate with about 3 different places, then over to Camden Town, finally down to Tottenham Court Road for a couple in a side street ending with a trawl round Virgin, HMV and what was then Tower at Picadilly Circus.

Happy days...but if your friend isn't into all that and just wants a guaranteed success at a cheap price.....



..then he should try ebay and a little patience.

I will email him to try these areas, thanks. He will be in London for just a couple of days and don't have time to search much, and would like to save the huge postage cost ;-)

Many of the shops I used to visit have since closed.
