Little treasures

For the first time in a few years, I went along to an auction earlier this week and picked up a couple of mixed lots. Yesterday, I filtered out a few of my favourite items and, as they’re all small enough, thought I’d share them on a video. The autofocus on my phone is easily confused when things are that close to it, so there are a couple of points where it struggles. I’ll look at ways of fixing that in future videos.

I can’t embed a link to my Zibbet store in the video, as they’re not yet an ‘approved’ merchandise site, but I’ve asked to have that fixed.

Christmas is coming!

Gift-giving time is almost upon us, so, I would like to point you to the places you can buy Spinneyhead stuff.

Obviously, you can buy my books, or Garth’s, but they’re exclusively digital. Buy them as a treat for yourself.

If you want physical presents to give away, there are a few places you can go.

I have a store hosted by Zibbet, where you can buy cards, buttons, badges and cufflinks made from coins, odd, naughty boxes, and vintage items.

I’m selling antique postcards on Delcampe, as well as stamps, slides and other interesting stuff.

A selection of my photos are available as prints from DeviantArt or Redbubble.

You can get 3D prints of stuff I’ve designed from Shapeways. It’s mostly model rail related stuff, but I’m going to be adding new designs as soon as possible.

I may have forgotten some of the places you can get my stuff, I have tried out all sorts over the years, but these are the main ones I use at the moment.

Threepence piece cufflinks


I like cufflinks. In fact, now that I no longer work in an office, I only own nice shirts that need cufflinks. So I’ve started making cufflinks.

These links are made from 1967 vintage threepenny pieces attached to blank cufflinks with Araldite. Each pair has a head and a tail coin.

You can buy them from the Spinneyhead shop at Zibbet.


Crossover 1 Page 01B

I have a small stack of, mostly, Image comics from the nineties, a sharp knife and a guillotine, and I’m going to make some art. Working on some comic book themed ideas, my first series is going to be called “Crossover 1”. Two comics- Brigade series 1 issue 3 and C23 issue 3, collide in strips on the page. These being Image comics from the nineties, some of the resulting pages will be no less coherent than the originals.

There will be two versions of each page. A pages start with C-23 at the top, B pages with Brigade. Once I have a few more pages in stock, I shall be putting them up for sale on Spinneyworld and Zibbet.

Start shopping now for Valentine’s

Okay, it’s too late to get any last minute Christmas presents, but you could always plan ahead. I’m now selling prints through Qoop, such as Deep, Deep Blue below. Click on the image to go to its selling page, check out all the other images in my store.

I’m putting stuff into my Zibbet shop. I say buy now for Valentine’s because, if you’re as dirty minded as I, stuff like the indecent proposal ring is just the sort of thing you want to be getting for your significant other. Coming in the new year will be chainring clocks (I finally found the right backing board, I just hope it’s still in stock when I go to buy it) and other cycle related products.
