<h2>About the London Hackspace</h2>
<p>The London Hackspace is a non-profit hackerspace in central London: a community-run workshop where people come to share tools and knowledge. We have a 1,300 square foot space in Shoreditch, just a stone's throw from Hoxton station. It's open to our members 24 hours a day, and we hold regular free events which are open to the public.
</p><p>We were donated a large amount of hardware by a local Internet company. We hope to use the proceeds of this sale to improve our space.

</p><p>Please see our full listings of items here: <a href="http://shop.ebay.co.uk/londonhackspace/m.html" class="external free" rel="nofollow">http://shop.ebay.co.uk/londonhackspace/m.html</a>
<h2><span class="mw-headline" id="Item_collection"> Item collection </span></h2>
<p>All items can to be collected from our workshop in Shoreditch (East London), near Hoxton station.  This is outside the congestion charge zone and has a 30-minute loading bay. Collection is preferred in the evenings, but any time of day can be arranged on request. We require that items be collected within 7 days of the end of the auction, if they aren't your payment will be returned (excluding fees) and we will re-list the item. 
</p><p>Post code: E2 8HD
</p><p>We can send these by courier, but this will take 3-4 working days as we buy packaging as needed.
<h2><span class="mw-headline" id="Payment"> Payment </span></h2>

<p>Payment is possible by PayPal (although we require payment within 4 working days of winning the item), or by cash when collecting the item.
