Bennetts of Sheffield

Post by Phil Arnott »

I'm passing on some of my old catalogues and here are three early Bennetts of Sheffield.

They are post free to the highest bidder with the payment going to Mark directly towards his expenses.

Hi Phil, Excellent! I remember going to Bennetts when I arrived in Sheffield as a student (aka 'Studie b******), and receiving a lecture on why fishing was the sport of the working class man...I'd only gone in for some bait. I'll start the bidding with a tenner. Regards Cat

Thanks for the offer Cat. I'll leave this a little longer. They are in very good condition considering they are fifty years old.

I'll offer £15 Phil, Bennett's were certainly a part of my early days and I loved to look around their shops.
Money donated to the TFF, that sounds good.

I'll let this run until Friday in case anyone else wants to bid.

I've found two more Bennetts catalogues to pass on to members. I presume these follow on from the others I posted so 1976 and 1977.

As before highest bidder, I'll cover the postage with the payment going to Mark.

Bennetts!! My first 300 came by mail order from them in 1972. For some reason their next to last shop premises on The Wicker in Sheffield has remained unoccupied (and now derelict) since they left 20 years ago: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.38645 ... ?entry=ttu

Here's the last place just round the corner where they finally gave up the struggle in 2012: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.38710 ... ?entry=ttu.
