Jobs at Robert Murray Stamp Shop
We are constantly busy, and with the impending retirement (in June) of Tom Maxwell, we are in the position that we are looking to take on new staff over the coming months. As always, I am quite flexible, and willing to look at all possibilities - young or old, experienced or not, even without a philatelic background, and whether looking for full-time or part-time employment.
In the first instance, please write, phone, or email to Adrienne Murray at our normal shop address.
Previous applicants need not reapply.

      Ü     This is the second “Collectables” section under our new system. Instead of having a small
non-philatelic section in every stamp sale, and an annual dedicated Collectables Auction, there will
be a section like this appearing approximately quarterly. There will still be some non-stamp lots in the
normal stamp auctions.
     
Ü     Anybody not interested in the following Collectables section can safely leave the auction
r
oom (to look at the Buy or Bid Sale, or go upstairs to the bar). There will be a short break at the end
of the non-philatelic lots, during which we will give warning of the resumption of stamp lots.

 This auction is conducted according to the "Philatelic Auctioneers Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale" (available if requested).
A Buyer’s Premium of 10% (inclusive of global v.a.t.) will be added to the sale price of all lots.
Postal Bidders should remember that they may give alternative bids, or state a total spending limit.
 Telephone bids are accepted, but must later be confirmed in writing.
Material can be accepted at any time for inclusion in future sales. Our commission is 10% of the sale price, plus administration fee of £1 per lot + £4.75 per vendor (all plus v.a.t.). Full details on request.
 We DO NOT charge buyers a handling charge per lot, nor is there VAT added to any sale prices.
Please bid early. In the case of equal bids, the lot will be sold to the person whose bid was received first (unless free bidding in the room equals the top book-bid, although the Auctioneer will try to regulate the bidding in such a way as to avoid this).
 Apart from viewing the lots in person, you can get a better description of any lot, by telephoning or writing.
 (Photocopies are available, at a charge of 15p per copy (colour copies A4 pages; 1st copy £1, 50p per page thereafter), plus postage.)
Remember the Buy or Bid Sale - bring items along on the night. We will try to sell them for you, at a charge of 10% + 25p (optional insurance 1% extra). Have a look at what’s on offer before and during the main auction. You can buy items outright or place a bid. (Larger lots delivered to our shop are charged £1 per lot entry fee.)

 Open Bids ("Buy Bids") are not normally accepted. If such bids are made, they will be taken to mean a bid of ten times the printed estimate.
Any invoices remaining unpaid fourteen days from the auction date (or after delivery to a postal buyer) will attract interest at the rate of 2% per month or part thereof.
