I’m Mike Fox, owner of Reynard Collectables, a small start-up business buying & selling mainly paper based collectables (stamps, postcards, ephemera) but with an interest in all things old! I mainly trade through internet sites (moving more into delcampe after several years on ebay), but also frequent some postcard and ephemera fairs in the South East of England.

I love buying bulk collections either through auction or privately for the thrill of a potential “find”, and also love to spend some time researching the history of some of my stock (when time permits).

I was born and brought up in Crawley, West Sussex from an old Crawley family and live there with my wife Barbara (author of the best selling book “Bedpans & Bobbysocks” see picture below) and two sons.

    I have found a web site where you are selling a post card called “Freddy Skerry Docking Dwarf” which I am interested in buying as I beleive he is a relative. The site also suggests you may have other postcards sent from this family. I would be interested in knowing what you have and how I can buy this post card without going through the complex registration processes.

    • Hello and thanks for your interest. Yes the card is for sale in my shop on the delcampe website, I do not think the registration process is that complex, but then it is a while since I went through it. An unusual printed card, I have never seen another of this subject.
      I am not sure the sender of the card is related to “Freddie” but it was the sender from Docking, Norfolk and the recipient in Jarrow who I meant were related (I aquired the collection from a relative of theirs in Newcastle 3 years ago and still have alot of the Docking and Jarrow cards to list and sell).
      The Freddie Skerry card is for sale at £11.99 plus postage as it is a rare card.
      Please let me know if interested and you could pay by cheque if you do not want to go through the registration process.

    Many thanks for your reply, I would like to buy the card please as I have established he is my grandads uncle. I realise that the Skerry connection may not be related to the information entered by the sender to Jarrow, but I am sure there will be a Docking connection as that is where my skerry family originated.
    If you let me know who to make the cheque payable to, the postage cost and where to send it I will send you across payment by post.
    I am very interested in any reference to the Skerry family on the reverse of any cards you have and would appreciate it if you could keep this in mind.

    Kind regards
