Well, last Sunday was our fair in Bibury and we did reasonably well, the weather was excellent despite the forecast and I believe that helped with some sales figures. Shown here are a few quick photo’s of stock that was exhibited there. If you like anything just ask and I’ll try to trace the dealer to see if they have it still, or why not visit us on our last event of the year in Bibury, on November 3rd. That’s most likely when there will be weekend bonfires, jacket spuds and the first of the sloe gin opened if I remember rightly from an event I went to a couple of years ago, see you soon!
Hello again! I’m pleased to say that we will be back on show in Bibury Village Hall on October 6th. We have a good looking fair lined up and here’s a little item to shed some light on what may be there! Pop in and say hi, there’s a visitors book if you’d like to sign it. This will be our penultimate fair for this year, our last is on November 3rd, and we expect to return to Bibury in the spring of 2020. See you soon. Here’s the candlestand, and a candle I made from some old beeswax foundation. Bye for now.
Hello again! Just to say that our last three fairs for this year in Bibury start on September 1st, yes, this Sunday! We are open from 10am to 4pm, and are easily found in one of The Cotswolds most visited small villages. Maybe see you there, here are a few images taken at our last event, hope you like them.
Aha! Here we are again. Well, this was photographed at our last event in Bibury, and we are returning there on September 1st. Won’t be long now!
So, just in case you don’t know, this was taken from a piano. Marshall and Rose were early 20th C piano people. There’s lots of info on the internet about them, so I need not redo it. Just thought if someone called Marshall was marrying Rose wouldn’t it be a great for the table plan!
Here it is…….
Hope it makes you smile. Maybe see you soon, perhaps in September, or October, or our final month for this year in Bibury, November!
We return to Bibury this Sunday, August 4th, from 10am untill 4pm. Easily found in Bibury, as it’s not a big place, but steer oneself towards the river, and we are at the opposite end of the village from The Trout Farm!
As ever, I rarely know what the dealers will bring, and I found this photo of an item which may well help steer you towards us! Have a good day! Regards, Andy.
Amongst the dealers, there will be jewellery, glass, mirrors, pictures, rugs,and some furniture. Here’s something that should be for sale at Bibury, please ask for a viewing.As ever there’s great food available in the local pub and hotel, and places to wander and find ice creams!
A painted pine chest of drawers. The sizes of the height and width are the same, being 37″ or 94cm. The depth is 17 1/2″, or 44.5cm. Having just been photographed here after being waxed, the remedial scuffing of a paint finish has been left alone, after all someone may want to have them re-painted! Can deliver if required, call for viewing on 07977 936 882 or email me on email@example.com thanks, Andy.
Being summer time and many folks go away, I am pleased to say I found a little “Island Treasure” recently, well, I found it here in England, and I have cleaned it by simply waxing and buffing, and I think it’s a great improvement on what it was. Yes, if you didn’t know, when I’m not at Bibury Antiques Fair I restore furniture, so am happy to chat about wood, tools and polishes etc, but just beware, I have been told I do talk a little!
So, whilst pottering around the other day I found this, if remember I may well bring it to the next fair with a few other sticks. I have some made from Partridgewood, Blackthorn, Yew, Ash, this one, from Pitcairn I understand is Miso wood. A new timber to me, whilst it shares a similar colour to either Partridge, or one of the many oaks, there is a lot of information about this timber on the internet. Similar sticks from Pitcairn are in some museums around the world. Watch out next time you go out for a walk, I may well be using this! Happy wanderings! Andy.
Bibury Antiques Fair will be held on April 5th, May 3rd, June 7th, July 5th, August 2nd, September 6th, October 4th, and November 1st being our final one for the year. We start at 10am, and close at 4pm.
