Big Yellow is very expensive for odd bottles over a longer period in comparison to (eg) FRW.

Improved:

Should the standard advice include something on storage? Perhaps
If you are selling to free space, do consider professional storage. Several regulars on ThePortForum.com store Port at Seckford Wines; others use Fine+Rare; others, needing greater accessibility, use Big Yellow in Fulham; some use or have used Octavian Vaults. If the quantity is small, the cost will be modest.

(To go after the ¶ “So our usual advice is not to sell.”)

Done. If people are unhappy it can be undone or redone.

And I have also closed the poll at the start of this thread.

This has been a splendid idea of DRT’s. Six threads have been started in the first seventeen days of June — clearly the search engines like it.

Could the "grubby old bottles" sticky be somehow moved to below the "Selling port, excellent, start here" sticky in the Selling Port sub-forum? Such an arrangement would seem more intuitive for new visitors.

I'll bump the locked thread when back at a proper computer.

I have changed the status of Tom's thread to "Stickie" so that it stays at the top of the forum posts but no longer appears in the header section.
