I wonder how many bags were made for the show. We see some of the customers making off with a bag.

I remember Grace Brothers Bags as premiums for donating to PBS Stations during their Beg Week. I don't remember which PBS Stations though. I would imagine ebay could have some on offer. They have AYBS? Merchandise often.

Here's one signed by John Inman for $349.95 (OMG!!!). Fortunately, they have the make an offer option, so one could see if they'll take $20 instead.

That looks like a hand made one! It's not to my liking!

The seller and his lady are up to their waists in water with their hands on what seems to be a dead Dolphin on it's back.

Casting cards for the actors. Not a bad price!

The BBC are known for their thrifty recycling so I've no doubt items were used in other shows. On the Wizard of Oz DVD they have a bit where they show props from the film in other films - the BBC needs to make one of those for AYBS?!

Those are pages from Spotlight, the casting directory for British showbiz. They used to be published in sets of five or six big volumes every year. Nowadays, of course, it's all online: offhand I'm not sure whether Spotlight still sells the print versions, but I suspect not.

I've done a lot of business with that seller, and I can heartily recommend him. He's given me first dibs on anything he finds, related to Sue.

I'd like the lift doors...and I'd like Nancy to come round and open and close them for me.

When I was a kid I used to go to the library and sit and look through those books for hours! The large books in full show up on Ebay too but they're usually expensive.

I wish they had the old books online to go through - they were fascinating.
