Autojumbles.   Most weekends there is an Autojumble taking place somewhere. Some are attached to Shows but most are an event in their own right.  If you are not receiving a publication like Old Bike Mart which lists all these events then have a look in a Classic Bike magazine at you local news agents.  The amount of Autojumble at a large show such as the International Classic Bike Show (April) takes me literally all day to sort through and I'm not a serious Autojumbler by any means.

EBAY.   You will find all sorts junk to fill your house with on Ebay but there are some great bargains to be had. Anybody can register for free. Its worth signing up for PayPal as well, this allows you to purchase items from sellers via your Credit Cards. Delivery of the items you buy is much quicker if you don't have to wait for a cheque to clear. Read their tips on using the search facility to its full potential. Always look for items that have been incorrectly spelled or are in the wrong category. These items will be relatively cheap as most ebay users will not find them.
