What's on offer; what is wanted on

the Fireworks Collectors' Section

Fireworks takes no responsibility for items not supplied during transactions and advises personal contact between collectors. It warns against sending large sums of money - or valuable items - to unknown requesters without security. Like ebay, the collectors' exchange is set up on a basis of trust. Payment by PayPal is recommended.

Items Rip Rap wants

Rip Rap

WANTS: Interested in ANY pre 1970's British fireworks & associated memorabilia (posters, boxes, labels etc). But especially the following: Jumping Crackers of any type (but especially Standard). All makes of banger, squib, or aeroplane. I am a relative newcomer to firework collecting (which is why I am interested in pretty much ANYTHING & EVERYTHING) & as such have very little in the way of swaps. I envisage most transactions on my behalf to be purchases.
