Looking to Europe

With all the fun and games over the Referendum I started to think maybe we could sell some items in Europe. It will probably depend on the outcome. But it is an interesting excercise in any case.

I have experimented with Google Translate. Have a look ...............

La traduction peut être changée en plusieurs langues et peut également être modifié à partir du Royaume-Uni Pound en euros contre Dollar US .
Les traductions de Google peuvent ne pas être précis à 100% , mais devrait être suffisant pour donner une expérience confortable pour afficher les différents articles en vente bon.

The local lodges here work Schroeder's Ritual and use different regalia to UGLE, I dont think there aren't many suppliers so another one would be an interesting option. There are many lodges in Europe too which work in English (mine included), the problem we have with buying regalia locally is that the suppliers here tend to buy from a UK provider and then resell at quite a mark-up. What we have a hard time getting a hold of is lodge furniture at a good price, e.g. Warden's Columns and Deacon's wands we can only buy from the UK as there is no local producer.

Theres a wee problem Bill in that we cant have anything to do with Grand Orient whether in Italy or France
( and France has over 10 Grand Lodges of which we can only have dealings with one (GLNF)
Not that its stops you selling stuff just be aware of restrictions nothing to do with Brexit even if DisMay gets it?
PS Scotlands main supplier Victoria Regalia in Edinburgh has just changed hands with a gentleman of English /Indian extraction
taking over so maybees some chance here

happy New Year Bro / B all

The contact is on visiting not just talking to each other.

If anyone wants to check which GL is OK

Yes I had heard that Victoria had changed ownership. Good luck to the new owner.

I believe the vast majority of Tarten is manufactured in Pakistan.

Happy New Year to all.

Aye Bill thats why Im concerned about new owner not using local sources
Ive never knowingly bought any Non Scottish made tartan
but get loadsa emails from a guy in 'stan offering regalia
Im often perplexed at Orient visitors who come all the way to Scotland knowing they cant visit lodges
( They do know ) (and despite the French habit of visiting others anyway just not signing book
But of course theres no problem trading so guid luck bro !
Happy Hogmany
Awfae noisy here last night , not only the fireworks and crazy street procession but a Police chopper overhead ! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The issue these days is no one can touch the quality or the price of the Pakistan made regalia.

I suspect the chinese will be in that market place soon. They make some now.

Most of Toyes stuff is Pakistan. I get the banners made there, can not match the quality in the UK.

I know that some of Victoris is PK as well.

At the end of the dy it all boils down to price.

I would always watch The White Heather Club with my parents on New Years eve. Great times.
Wee Cock Sparra

Best New year since I grew up was at Garons Banquet Suite Southend.
All gone now, at 12 midnight the countdown went 3,2, 1 and the Large doors at one end opened and the Southend Pipe band came in.
My Pals there with me being Scottish went berserk, in a nice way, they did not know it was coming. Great days, fond memories.
