I'm considering ordering a few items from The Prop Gallery in the UK. Anyone done business with them recently? Any reviews good or bad?
I've acquired four pieces from TPG; the first in 2015, the last in 2020.
All-around, very positive experiences. Reasonable communication, receptive to questions and straightforward in their answers, careful packaging, and even the occasional thoughtful follow-up when they're offering something related to a past purchase, which I appreciate.
I'm surprised TPG doesn't get mentioned more frequently in collecting circles. It's obviously a smaller vendor, but - at least based on representations of films/shows with which I'm familiar - I'd rate their description quality and reliability far higher than most comparable operations and up in the realm of Propstore (or perhaps even higher; I think I've only ever submitted one or two listing corrections in eight years). The only
reason I haven't bought more thus far is simply a matter of stubbornly waiting for the right item to coincide with the right price.
