Help please,

I've been offered Mark Sinckler's Age of Shiva, what would be a reasonable price to pay for it?

I think it originally sold for £150 but not sure.

Your comments, please.

Thanks.......

Thought I'd offer this here before I take it to the main board as for most it'll be a rare chance to pick up this print without paying a couple of hundred pound + in customs charges.

Stout - Big Trouble in Little China

I'm looking for £670 Open to offers, no trades though please.

This print has been trimmed 1-2mm on either side, other than that the corners are crisp and the edges are good. It has been in a frame for a couple of years but I took it out to photograpah so it is currently in a tube. There is no fade, reds, gold & black POP.

If you want to come and see the print before you buy it, that's no problem. PM me and we'll sort something. I live on the south coast near Portsmouth.

Not looking for any trades at the moment. I'm going to buy a kayak with whatever I get for it and have an amazing summer splashing around with my young son.

Thank's guys

Edit: Price reduced.

If a pinholed print went for $730 ish dollars I think you'd be more than a bit lucky to get $1100 for a trimmed version but who knows when it comes to Stout . . .

Hey, does anyone know if we can pick up cheap 18 x 24 inch frames in the UK?

I have a couple of not so valuable prints I want to frame on the cheap.

not ready made, but I've had a few A2 frames made at a framer from flat black 1" composite and they usually come to about £16 each with glass and backing board

I think I'll be going down that route then.

Thanks for the heads up on these, I ordered a box of 25 late on Monday night and they arrived today, they look solid.

Perfect for sending out the print in my winter mystery tube that I'm currently selling with 2 tubes left.

Hi everybody,
First post round here, fairly new to the whole scene and looking for a bit of advice if nobody minds
I hope none of you mind me asking, but I have heard at some point that somebody has managed to claim back their customs charges due to Art only being subject to 5% VAT.
Could somebody please tell me a little bit more about this because I have pile of receipts for the Royal Mail over the last 6 months to the tune of between £20 and £50 each and if I can get some of that back I'd like to know how to.
Thanks for any help at all.
BTW I've noticed a few of you are from the Portsmouth area and I am too :)

Welcome, man! There's been a lot of talk about customs charges in here. Personally I've never been bothered enough to claim any back, so this interests me as well. I should probably start claiming.

Not long ago a friend of mine was going to try opening the tube and getting the poster, then making the tube weigh exactly what it did before and sending it back as 'refused delivery' and therefore getting his customs charges back. Not sure if it worked though... Can't see why it wouldn't.

Hi, there is some good info on this thread over at the Banksy forums. The initial post is quite old, so perhaps read through to the end in case anything has changed. Good luck with it, hope you can claw some cash back - http://banksyforum.proboards.com/index. ... read=17538
