Sell To Us
Sell to us
Now then, 'ow do?
We buy and part-exchange all sorts of photographic equipment - whether you want to clear out a dusty old cupboard, or trade up to a proper bobby dazzler -we are here to help.
You're welcome to fill in the form below and let us know what you have in mind to offer us, but please remember we do not stock anything digital.
We’re analogue specialists, so we don’t buy or sell digital cameras or digital-only lenses – we are however interested in almost all types of film cameras, vintage lenses, and accessories. We are interested in a lot of modern lenses too, as these will often fit film cameras.
Whether you would like to sell an item to us, or you just want a valuation, fill in the form and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Alternatively, if you have photos of your items, you can send them directly to our email address, found on the contact page.
Please Note: we do not purchase from outside of the EU, and we do not offer cheque payments - -purchases can be paid for by BACS only.
Why sell with us?
Since 2012, we've bought and sold upwards of 30,000 items of classic photographica, from the everyday to incredibly rare and sought after. Sometimes the most minor details can have a major effect on price, and we have the knowledge and the experience to make sure you're getting the best deal on your equipment.
We're one of the very few analogue specialist brick-and-mortar shops in the UK. Our bright and welcoming premises are situated in the Victorian Grand Arcade, in Leeds city centre. You can rest easy and safe in the knowledge that we're not an anonymous, faceless online-only website.
You're not limited to emailing us - if you prefer to then you can come along and talk to us while we look at what you have, or call us up and speak to one of our small team.
How does it work?
Not much faffing about. Fill int' form opposite, and we’ll reply to your message with a quote as soon as we can. Then you can either visit and let us take a look at your equipment – or alternatively if you live further afield (outside God's own country) you can send the items in the post to us.
Naturally, the prices we will quote you without seeing the items in question are estimates only – we have to inspect your equipment in person before making a final offer to make sure everything is up to our standards (more often than not they are - and in fact, in some cases this will also lead to us making a higher offer if the items are in better-than-expected condition). If we can't agree on a final price, the equipment will be returned at no cost to you.
We make payment by BACS - we're entirely cashless for buying or selling.
What do we do with your information?
Nowt bad! We’ll only use your email address or phone number to contact you about your enquiry. We will never use your details for anything else. We won’t send you spam in the distant future or give your details to any third parties.
