Plain Sailing?

Hello again!

Been a while since I bought this plane, and now that it’s all clean and sharpened, I had great pleasure using it yesterday.

So, if anyone has any old tools still in their sheds, or workshops which have been long abandoned, I may well be interested in looking at them to see if some can be brought back into use, after all, this one looks as though it could be easily around 150 years old, (most likely more!) and now will be in regular use.

Hope you like it!

Regards, Andy.

Clocking Off for the day!

Well, Hello!

Not exactly clocking off for the day, the signs have to be collected and a few bits and bobs sorted before a supper and pop to match it!

Here is a photograph of a clock I have had offered for sale today, Sunday October 1st! At the time of writing, In can’t find my photographs, so a temporary one will have to be done, until I can get a better one.

Sorry, here it is for now! (Ihope!!)

The Kitchen Cabinet!

Hello Folks!

Well, this little gem has been hiding in my kitchen for about 5 years or so, and prior to then was a workshop store for handy stuff, such as my part finished models of projects to be made full size, and all the delicate sketches and drawings of future work. When in the kitchen, was full of flour for bread and jars of honey, and some nice old steak knives which should be used more often, for any supper perhaps. Has a single interior shelf. Yes, I should have measured it, I’ll add sizes soon, unless it sells! Please call or email for info.

Well, here it is, an Oak Arched door cabinet with upper drawer. They keys are around somewhere as I had to remove them to wax and buff this prior to photography.

On show on Sunday October the first……..

Anyone remember the saying ” Pinch, Punch, First of the month, and no return!” Maybe I remember it as I was often on the receiving end, “Happy Days!?”.

Best Cellar?

Hello again!

Well, excuse the pun, but could this be a best Cellar(ette)?

Here it is, what a cracker, or am I wrong, I think it’s a fab colour, shape and in pretty good condition too! I can cut a key of needed, but as it’s empty I didn’t need one!

On show at Bibury Antiques Fair this Sunday October 1st.

Call or email for info!

Thank, Andy.

What’s next?

Hello again!

This coming Sunday there are two new stallholders with us and I rarely know what people will bring, but I do know that after an hour or so of setting up, Bibury Village Hall becomes a place of people displaying their stalls, chatting, drinking tea and coffee and seeing what everyone has brought.

Why not call in during the day to see what we have on offer. I can say that there will be some great cakes, teas and coffee and sandwiches available from noon, so for all those people whom have had great suppers on Saturday, we are an ideal place for a break and a munch! Cyclists and walkers have bought cake to take away before too! Just a thought.

Here’s a fish that may be able to be taken home, and used, not eaten!

Have a good day, Andy.

Ahoy there!

 

Hello Shipmates!

Here is a small section of a larger painting that is currently for sale, it may be available for viewing on Sunday at Bibury, please call for further information. I’ll try to get to measure the whole, but it is a reasonably large painting. The water levels in Bibury luckily are not capable of us seeing anything like this, so a painting will have to do! The fair is open this Sunday October 1st, from 10am.

Regards, Andy.

One week to go!

Morning All!

Just a quick catch up here, as we are in the week running up to us being on show again in Bibury Village Hall. We open at 10am as many of you know.

There are a couple of new stallholders this month, and one of them will be selling some of the chattels from their mothers estate. 

The Lady that used to be “Listen With Mother” and who wrote several books died in 2016, and one of her daughters will be with us.

Here is  a link to the obituary, https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/apr/28/eugenie-summerfield-obituary .

Also here is a photo of one of last months items, created by Desmond Raynor.

Regards, Andy.
