IMPORTANT; Viewing Arrangements for Not-To-Auction Lots.

This relates to all lots in this auction which have the [1a] symbol in their description, signifying that they will not be taken to the auction venue. It will be arranged so that these lots can be viewed at our shop premises on auction day, and that purchases can be collected that same evening.
{a} In addition to the normal viewing arrangements noted above, any lots marked [1a] can be viewed at our smaller shop at 1A Inverleith Gardens, on Monday 25th November from 3pm to 6.45pm. Should there be pressure on available space, viewing will be at the discretion of our staff.
{b} After purchasing and paying for any [1a] lots at the auction venue, customers can take their receipted invoice to our shop and pick up these lots, from 8pm until ten minutes after the last customer has been cleared through accounts.
{c} Customers can still opt to collect their lots from us later in the week during shop opening hours.
{d} There is no parking directly outside 1A, so customers will have to park a little further along Inverleith Gardens. While we can lend you a trolley, there will be no available staff to carry boxes.
