THE PUZZLE MUSEUM SHOP
The puzzles and related items offered in this section represents a unique opportunity to obtain some very rare items. They are being sold to contribute towards the costs of running this website. There are a small number of new puzzles but the majority are antiques. Most are duplicate items found in the museums store or acquired when large collections of puzzles & books have been donated or purchased during the past 30 years.
Three places to find Puzzles for Sale
Have you got some nice OLD puzzles that you want to sell, swap, or give us?
We welcome new additions to the museum collections, so please tell us if you think you have a puzzle we might like to buy. If you prefer, the duplicates listed in our shop may be had on very advantageous terms when we are swapping them for other puzzles.
Bargains. Some items in these "For Sale" lists are offered at a low price because they are un-restored. Usually the restoration is very minor, just a clean and polish or re-gluing of the corner of a cardboard box.
Repairs and Restorations. In addition to the puzzles listed here, we have a large quantity of other puzzles Tanglement, French boxed puzzles, Dexterity puzzles, and sets of Cast & Wire puzzles which need restoration. If you are willing and able to do this then we will happily invite you make a very low offer for them. The work is often simple and just requires time, care, and patience. This is a very good way for a new collector to obtain some excellent puzzles at a very low price.
Please note that many items we are selling are not suitable for children as they pre-date most safety regulations and may include materials like glass, mercury and lead.
Orders:There is usually only one of each item available; so we have no automated ordering system.
We will then email you with details of the availability and total cost including postage and packing.
Payment may then be made by Paypal, Electronic Transfer, securely dispatched cash, or UK sterling cheque.
Requests will be looked at and sorted regularly but not every day; so please be patient.
