Having operated for the past 40 years, Armitage Auctions in Invermay, Tasmania, has been facilitating auctions for anything from your normal household contents to quality antique furniture and china etc., also special collectors items.

“This will be the fourth special petrol memorabilia/garagenalia auction we have held in the past two years, and is undoubtedly the best,” auctioneer Neil O’Brien says.

“We have possibly the best selection of enamel signs offered for public auction from one collector anywhere in Australia.

In addition to signs he has also collected cars, petrol bowsers, tins, old toys, bikes, peddle cars and loads of quirky interesting memorabilia which are also all being sold.

“We feel very honoured and proud that we were asked to do this auction. Further, since announcing this auction we have accepted items from two other vendors who collected mainly oil bottles and tins.”

Armitage will hold a viewing of the items up for auction for a week-long lead-up to the event. A gallery of items is available here.

Not since Emilio Estevez has somebody enjoyed the perks of being famous in their own head as much as multi-award seeking magazine editor Paul Skelton. On weekends they can both be found quacking at local hockey players, insisting on being called Coach Bombay.


Name: Paul ‘Lager than life’ Skelton
Beer experience: Heavyweight
Style preference: Lagers and draughts
Beers I avoid: Fraoch Heather Ale, Wells Banana Bread Beer, any ‘chilli’ beer
Beer philosophy: What’s wrong with sticking with what you like? When I go to the pub for a pint and a punt, I don’t feel like I have to try the latest microbrew on tap. Sure, I will give them a go if I’m up for it, but I don’t want to drink beer that has a ‘floral aftertaste’ or has ever been described as looking like ‘the red dust of the Nullarbor on a warm August eve’. Yes, my taste has been described as ‘plain’, but what’s wrong with that?
