I found a set of RAAF, same design was used by RAF, black uniform buttons, as there were no Emus in my family Mrs GF concluded they must have come from one of her aunts former husbands. There pictured bellow and wonder if anyone wants them for free. Any takers? PM me if you want them.

I'm ok with wearing regimental ties even if you don't belong to the regiment but RAAF buttons I'd expect the wearer to have shot down at least three Messerschmitts by lunch time.

(...to someone with a clue, i.e., not me.)

there's no way I'd sell the business because it's a family name (my grandfather) but the website is obviously worth something so if someone wanted to buy that on the proviso it'd get a name/url change then I'd consider that definitely.

Why not? Dick Smith ... Roger Dubuis ... Gérald Genta ...

 

Plenty of people have sold their own name (or that of a relative), and they survived.

 

Seriously though, you could write a clause in the contract allowing them to use the name for a run-off period (say 24 months) while they go about winning over your client base's confidence.

 

I have no idea what sort of volume you've generated over the past years, but the name and the database would certainly be worth something. Don't go pissing that potential monetisation opportunity up against a wall.

^Cox, I think that you've almost managed to talk yourself into taking it over as a side business! 

 

And the best bit is - you get your pick of the ties!

I'm trying to find some vintage jewellery for my girlfriend's birthday.

Can anyone suggest a good online shop / store in Sydney?

There are a number of good estate jewlers between Park & Market St on Caslelreagh St. I've bought Mrs GF a few things there over the years and also had our wedding rings made by a jewler on that strip.

Ha that's what he wants you to think. He uses the last CR sweatshop in Coburg.

I've used Katrinas before, they were alright but needed a bit of prodding. Who is this so called Sam of Docklands?
