We are currently closed to the public due to COVID 19 Level 4 protocols. Fear not, we will still have some auctions going up online for you as we are able to complete these, but we will not be able to arrange collections until after the level 4 period has ended and we drop down to a manageable level. With all this uncertainty we may need to adjust our Auction calendar and push some of our auction dates around a little as we are not able to organise our regular collections, but we do have a warehouse full of goodies to hopefully keep you entertained while you are safe at home in your bubbles. Stay safe everyone, see you on the other side. best wishes your Thorntons team
