This month we have been talking to Kegan Harrison, Head of Collectors at Tennants Auctioneers in Yorkshire about how he came to be involved in the wonderful and varied world of Toys and Collectables.
Where do you work ?
Head Of Collectors
6.30am; Mon-Fri 8.30-17.00
Preparing items for sale by auction (sorting, valuing cataloguing)
Started out working for my uncle (an antique toy dealer) as a summer job, was still their 5 years later and then moved on into auctions

Do what you enjoy doing
I was a carpet fitter (briefly and not a good one)
