About Prop Store
Prop Store sells original movie props and costumes and related memorabilia, regularly hosting live and online prop and costume auctions. Operating since 1998, Prop Store founder Stephen Lane’s love for movies led him to begin hunting for the same props and costumes that were used to create his favourite films. He found that he could not only provide collectors with access to their most coveted pieces, but also establish archival standards for a new, pop-culture hybrid of fine art and memorabilia collecting – prop art. Prop Store handles prop disposal, sale, archive and auction services to production companies and distributors as well as fixed price item sale on its website, www.propstore.com
Lumos is fighting for every child’s right to a family by transforming care systems around the world. We are an international charity striving for a future where every child is raised in a safe, loving home, supported by family to help them thrive.
On average more than 80% of children in orphanages have living parents, and research proves that these institutions can harm a child’s growth and development. Yet there are still an estimated 5.4 million children trapped in institutions globally.
Lumos sheds light on the root causes of family separation – poverty, conflict and discrimination – and demonstrates that children can safely be united with families. By pressing governments to reform care systems, and by building global expertise and capacity with partners, we ensure no child is forgotten.
Founded by author J.K. Rowling, we are lighting a path to a brighter future where all children can grow up in a safe and loving family.
We believe in a family for all children. We are Lumos.
