We’re only a hop, skip and a jump away!

Pop in and say hi, I’ll be there!

Falling behind?

Hello again! 

Just a quick photograph of an oak longcase dial taken as I was adjusting the time, so an hours extra time as many people say, however as its sunny, I’m off to have a short walk in the sunshine, kicking leaves off the paths, just like schooldays! 

It’s quite likely that I’ll be taking this clock to Bibury, so if you’re interested  just nudge me and I’ll make sure it’s there. The dial signed Geo Jackson, Gainsbro. A nice 30 hour movement with good sounding bell! 

Our last fair this year in Bibury is on November 4th, between 10am and 4pm. Maybe see you there?

Regards, Andy.

A Delft Shelf Elf?

Hello all!

I’m hoping that the weather today will be kind on us and the autumn tourists around Bibury. Many will know we have a visitors book, and it’s great when people sign it, really I’m interested in their town where they live or consider their home. Bibury really proves to be a destination for many from all over.

Here we have, taken part way through setting up, a rack, sometimes called a Delft Rack, Board Rack, or Delft Shelf, my favourite as said quickly it can be difficult.

Here on show for sale are a few items, duplicate reference books, tools, and of course the rack itself, recent arrival, but I’m sure I will make good use of this for years as I think it will be a benefit to display items on. Let me know if you like how it all looks, and why not pop along and enjoy the fair, we do have some excellent items, I’ll take a few extra photos to encourage visitors for our last fair of the year, on November 4th, obviously that’s after our fair on October 7th!

Regards, Andy.

Picture This!

Hello again!

Well, on a day where a picture almost self destructs at a major auction house, here is one I am researching, and finding a frame for before I can offer it for sale, most likely at slightly less than a million pounds Stirling, but if someone offered that I could include a free shredder, paper or garden mulcher even!

I am struggling to read the inscription above the picture, but believe it says “Published 1822 (1922?) The Museum Galleries, 20 Museum Street, London. W0 Copyright”

Although signed in pencil, it is very faint, but I do like the embossed markings to one corner. These photographs will be enough for tonight, but when all said and done I actually like this, and feel as though I should know the place, but yet I don’t know where it is, yet!

Happy Researching for me!

Have a good weekend, and we will be on show in Bibury on Sunday 7th October!

Pop in and say hi and ask for a panini from a brand new kitchen accessory!

Regards, Andy.

Pinch, Punch, First of the month! (Again!).

Hello all.

The title was a saying of a dealer many of us used to know, and it’s still around, when I remember! My post today is to remind, or inform about our next event, this Sunday on October 6th in Bibury Village Hall.

Refreshments served by Angela will include panini as the weather gets cooler, and hot sandwich and soup may just well be ideal!

Here is a photograph of a stand a couple of months ago, and who hopes to return to us in the spring. It shows an example of the variety of items we do get. Hope you like it.

Regards, Andy.
