The Emporium of Antarctic Delights

Goods from OAE's and FID's. Items on this page have an Antarctic connection and are available from people who have previously worked in Antarctica (you will need to register first if you haven't yet done so - see bottom of page). Please email if you wish me to include something here, though I will be picky about what I add, in most instances your handknitted tea cosy won't be included, but it might if it has a penguin on it (no 2nd hand books).
