Bubb Kuyper in The Netherlands has two Tolkien related lots for sale this week. Use the link above to contact sales reps for more information. Prices seem remarkably low, so someone over there (or willing to bid remotely) might get a good deal. If anyone tries to see these or buy them, let me know how it goes! I haven't dealt with Bubb Kuyper before. These lots are being sold on WEDNESDAY 21 NOVEMBER 2007, 7.00 pm
