Oh dear... We have been running this online museum since 2009 and I have worked out that to keep the website running it is costing us £65.00 per month including the price of keeping the website advert free, internet costs, electricity, etc. This doesn't include what we pay out for Thomas Till pieces to add to our collection...
This is a non-profit making resource for those who want to find out about Thomas Till or any of the items that he produced but the sad fact is that we have to now come cap in hand and ask for donations to enable us to keep up this website. We have included a Donations Page (see the list on the left) where any help would be gratefully received. A donation, however small, can be made safely using Paypal.
The other option is to support our website by having a look at our new CafePress Shop. When we visit a museum it is always nice to come away with a souvenier. Now not everybody wants to have a Till and Sons tea or dinner service in their home - however nice they are, anymore than you would bring home a Chippendale chair from a visit to a country home. However, using our CafePress page you can buy an adult or childs T-Shirt with or without sleeves, a hoodie, apron, reuseable shopping bag, school bag, window sticker, clock, mug, water bottle, etc all with the "I [heart] Thos Till and Sons Online Museum". There are some lovely baby all-in-one suits and bibs. The clothing comes in a varity of colours and would make great presents. The Till & Son/s Online Museum gets 10% of anything that is bought through their secure checkout using Paypal.
If you have a Till item that you wish to sell we are happy to put photographs on our website indefinately for just £2.50. We do not complete the sale for you but we can let prospective buyers contact us and we will send you their details. All we ask is that you inform us when an item is sold so that we can remove the price and replace it with a SOLD notice. We can advice on a reasonable asking price as well if you wish.
We do know that times are hard for everybody but every little helps...
Thank you for your continued support of our online museum and we look forward to hearing more about your Till items.
