Thank you to all the Sid Dickens Club members and friends for attending our very special Sid Dickens night on February 24th, made possible by the kind offer from Sid, Greg, Carmen and Maureen to visit our Collaroy store during their time in Australia. Like many guests, Sid and team did not come empty handed! Sid Dickens has been very busy creating 100 Limited Edition Memory Blocks, which we featured in-store on the night.
We have been carrying Sid Dickens Memory Blocks since we opened a small store in Neutral Bay in April 1998, 19 years ago. We first saw the blocks in an American magazine, which started a hunt for how we could stock them in our stores. From the very start they have attracted collectors and have been a focal point in our stores wherever they have been placed.
Once again, a big thank you to everyone who attended, we hope you and anyone who could not make it on the night enjoy the following photos.

The Memory Blocks pictured below were part of the 100 Limited Edition pieces handcrafted by Sid and displayed on the night. Each Memory Block comes with a certificate of authenticity and is signed by Sid Dickens. The blocks are $269 each. Please call on (02) 9919 0601 to enquire about availability.
