QE2 Memorabilia to re-home
« on: Jul 15, 2019, 10:45 AM »
I have inherited a selection of QE2 memorabilia from a few trips my parents took on the ship in the 1990's. These are thngs like, note books, hats, umbrellas, pin badges, keyrings and a selection of paperwork - cruise planners/menus etc. Would these be of interest to people on the forum? The items are all very good/unused condition.

Although I have taken quite a few Cunard cruises, I never went on the QE2, so  I have no particular attachment to the items. It seems a shame to just give them to a charity shop. so if you are interested, please email me - andy.willis@runbox.com

If you were considering a charity shop to put these to, why not donate them to the forum here and such things could be offered as prizes in the photo comp or could be sold on here to donate to the forum funds ie the umbrellas and hats are always great give aways .But the postage on an umbrella can be quite scary.

Depending on what pins you have yes some can be quite rare or valuable or even unique, it all depends on what you have. Again Keyrings , there were such a lot produced in various designs.

Everything is of interest, its just a case of who likes what.
One picture is worth a thousand words.
Quite often we ebayers can see a hidden gem among a listing of junk... (not that lm saying its junk) l was referring to ebay listings when some people just list a pile of stuff .
 
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Bob Higginson is offering the following set of QE2 memorabilia, which includes labels and postcards.  This would be a fantastic addition to any QE2 fan's memorabilia collection.

If you are interested please send me a message or send an email to admin@theqe2story.com
