Parsons in the press!
18th Jun 2020
Many of us have had extra time on our hands in recent months, so to pass the time I was flipping through my old issues of Collectors Gazette and came across this brilliant article - all about me! Well not entirely, the double page spread (which you can access in using the link below) reviews the wonderful Ashington Toy and Train Collectors Fair, nestled in the heart of rural West Sussex. Known as the event "organised by collectors for collectors", it is now in it's tenth year and growing stronger by the year. The success is thanks to the unique customer experience but also to the advertising that takes place behind the scenes. So sit back with a cup of coffee and enjoy the nostalgic look back at the review from July 2019.

With no toy fairs running since March this is a very poignant image, from the much-loved and much missed Ashington Toy and Train Collectors Fair. But don't worry, all those happy memories will soon return, the smell of bacon rolls and sound of rummaging through boxes are just echoes at the moment but soon to be a reality again.
