I sent them a quick incomplete list about 3 weeks back when I was still sorting what was in the boxes and they confirmed back they’d like some of them. I just sent them a complete list with individual pics today for their historians to go through and select. I am also busy scanning and photographing for Huw to add to Brickset as the database is missing pics/instructions for some or are low res.
My favourites are the 509.. called ‘38 slimbricks’... which we now call plates. They were sold one size per pack but for some countries I believe they were repackaged into mixed size packs and to do this they used other boxes and stuck 509 labels over the end. One label is loose and can see its stuck over box 222.
Phenomenal find btw @Shropshire
they were in the attic, the newsagent was independent owned in Newcastle in mid 60’s was taken over by a national retailer who didn’t sell Lego so it all got shoved in the attic. The owner said over the years the odd item was taken and given to family kids etc. I got what was left.
I'm told it's worth that for the rear wheels alone.
Also, search engine in Ebay's very strange. Some sets just don't show – I'm stumbling upon them, while browsing seller's items.

Oh, & one of those 2 Arctic sets you named MAY be shown soon... ;P
Got 10019 for just 120, missing the instructions though. The stickers are also deteriorated, but can't complain at all for the price haha, considering I got it for less than it went for originally.... Instructions go for like 60 dollars, so may patiently wait until I find a deal on those, too. Will also get reproduction stickers off eBay to replace the old ones. This style of sticker seems extremely brittle.
Some months ago we got a great lot of LEGO Elves sets from there, when I was really worried about getting them since the prices for the Dragons sets especially are crazy. We got most (if not all of them) for retail price or bellow, it was great. It included 41073, 41075, 41171, 41173, 41174, 41176, 41177, 41178, 41179, and 41190. I think it was around $200-240 for all that, we were stoked. The only issue I found were some missing figures/accessories/creatures, and many of the pieces had this odd white hard plastic power on them, and quite a few of the pieces were cracked. I wonder if any of you know what the deal is with that, oh well. Still a great find.
