If you are interested in any of the items listed or would like to hear about what else in on sale, please e-mail
PRICES: It's up to you to make offers! I'll accept reasonable offers for most things, especially if the items are big and heavy and you're going to come and buy them and take them away. I'm not so keen on arranging shipping, but yes, this can be done. However, I'm not going to accept offers which are derisorily cheap, and definitely not less than the post and packing, so let's not be silly about it. To sum it up: If there's something on the list and you really want it, there's a good chance you will get it. I like to see items go to good homes.
Update: Zyra has now emigrated! 38 tonnes of Zyra's stuff has been moved to Panama, leaving about 10 tonnes (?) at a location in the UK. If you are interested in any particular item on the list, the criteria now are: Where are you, and in which location is the item in which you are interested? Then it is a matter of working out if a practical solution can be found.
For example, if you are in the UK, and the item you're looking to buy is at Zyra's old location in the UK (Boston, Lincolnshire, in the East of England), it may be possible to arrange something at a distance.
Or, if the item in question has been moved to Panama, a different set of arrangements is required.
The pre-emigration offer, which was "Plus, if you turn up, you get a free keyboard, and maybe even a basic non-flashy secondhand ex-military free mouse; you should be so lucky" can no longer be guaranteed for visits to the UK address (because most of the mice and keyboards have been moved!). Having said that, the offer was on the go for years!
If you don't fancy visiting the appropriate location, delivery costs have to be considered carefully.
It's important to understand that the items on this list are FOR SALE and are still available now. When items are sold, the list is updated within a reasonable time.
Well Done to all of the people have have managed to visit! There has generally been a very good level of customer-satisfaction, as people have found it is astonishing what has been amassed over the years, and they have hauled away extraordinary items for their collections.
In case you hadn't guessed, Zyra is a hoarder, and some of Zyra's customers are museums! Zyra says "Some people visit museums, but I have museums come and visit me!".
