    It's my wife's birthday in a few weeks. She's a HUGE fan of "Sweet Home Alabama", and I managed to get a prop from the film for her as a present. It came with a folder from the film, and I'm keen to stick some Reese Witherspoon "gumpf" in it - there's some promos from the film doing the rounds like magnets, the presskit etc. Unfortunately, zero of them are currently on eBay.

    Are there any other ways of getting hold of these? Any dealers of them? What about autographed pictures - how to get hold of them? I'm VERY wary of the eBay auctions of signed pics - there's a distinct number of radically different Reese autographs out there, and I've no idea how to tell what's genuine or not.

    Help!!

    check out The Propstore of London. They have BY FAR the biggest selection of props in the world. [​IMG]

    Ta for the link though, Rob, they got some really cool props & gear in their collection!

    As you say, nowt from Sweet Home... It's more 'press kits' & the freebies given to reviewers, journos & the like I'm after, plus an autographed pic.

    Brian,
    A friend of mine deals in autograph pix and sells through ebay. I can ask if he can get his hands on a pic for ya..what price range are you looking for?

    p.s. His user ID is nickspix, he has perfect feedback.

    As cheap as possible [​IMG]
    There's plenty of signed pics on eBay... My big problem is whether they are genuine or not.
