June is about to be! Time for tea?

I’m pleased to say our next Bibury Fair is this coming Sunday, 3rd June!

Why not splash about and pop by the River Coln, find us near the church, opposite end from The Trout Farm and Swan Hotel, but near Arlington Row. Inside the Village Hall will be a selection of antiques, and vintage items, including jewellery, silver, brass ware, glass, ceramics, and even a little furniture, and maybe a  few rugs too!

Refreshments will be served from just before noon, including some sandwiches and home made cakes, tea and coffee goes nicely with them in the sun outside, or on William Morris table cloths inside, depending on the weather!

Look out, we open form 10 am, close at 4pm too, as we may be seen sitting by the river looking for kingfisher or seeing how much the cygnets have grown since last month!

See you there?

Regards, Andy!

Rogation Sunday!

Hello all!

 Here is a Rogation mug for Rogation Sunday.

Never heard of it? Well, as a kid in the village choir we used to carry an old plough, painted and cleaned every year, into the church where it would be left in the aisle during the service and then get blessed by the vicar.

This is symbolic of blessing the land and the farmers, workers and the potential crops that all come from the land.

Quite appropriate as I now keep bees, and they are a massively important part of farming, helping to pollinate the crops. Not just honey bees, Bumble bees too!

So, here is a Rogation Mug. They vary massively, but this is one of at least two that will be for sale at Bibury Antiques Fair on May 6th!

Hope you like it! Regards, Andy.

Hello again!

Just a little photograph of what may be drawing closer next month.

Well, there are new stallholders with us, and as yet I haven’t got any photographs of their stock, so here is a set of drawing instruments I photographed last month, fabulous value!

Here they are!
