There's a beer glass collection group to go along with the mats.I have a (large) box of beermats in the loft, I collected from the late 60's through to the late 70's and which in our house is largely forgotten about. This thread prompted me to discover there is a British Beermat Collectors Society.
Spooky! Not 15 minutes ago I played Pete Seeger doing that on the tube for no reason other than I fancied listening to it, then on catching up with this place I see that.I have a small pile of Littlemill Distillery ashtrays in new condition. The distillery is now shut down permanently as a developer put boxes made of ticky tacky all over the site. Must be rising in value to the right collector. ( I hope)
I inherited 2 such boxes of beer-mats after clearing my parent's house in the 1990s. My father was an avid 'collector'* of many things. Oddly, he was absolutely teetotal, but visited hostelries for their mats. I contacted the British Beermat Collectors Society, with a view to turning my heirloom into cash. Eventually I was visited by one of their members ….. only one or two of the hundreds were of any interest, and I received an offer of £5 for the lot IIRC. They eventually went to a local auction room along with his 'collection' of matchbox labels and other odds and ends. Raised a few pounds in the end, but hardly worth the effort.I have a (large) box of beermats in the loft, I collected from the late 60's through to the late 70's and which in our house is largely forgotten about.
