 Dear collector,

We would just like to let you know that if you are one of our British based customers the prices of any goods for sale in the UK will almost certainly have to increase by a minimum of 10% when we buy in any new stock from overseas.
The drop in the buying power of the pound will mean that any imports from the USA and overseas, such as Colt revolvers, derringers and the like, will as from today all increase in cost to us. This will in turn mean increased prices in the future.
Even though Britain’s exit from the EU may be 2 years off, the pound has dropped on the world markets today.
The good news however is that AndrewBottomley.com are keeping all prices of current stock at today’s low prices and there will be no increase in price of  the goods for sale on our website until any new stock arrives from overseas.
Our foreign buyers should also please note that if you buy any items today and you are paying in a currency other than UK pounds, your actual costs are now around 10% cheaper than they were yesterday, due simply to the fall in the British pound.
Therefore there has never been a better time to buy the item you have always wanted for your collection.

Andrew Bottomley
