About Time!

Hello all!

Some people have told me that “Its about time” Bibury Antiques Fair started, and we are back on April 7th, not long now!

Here’s a watch which may be there, a slightly different Swiss 17 Jewel watch, looks fun to me! It may still be getting a replacement glass and a little tidy up by a vintage watch repairer.

Pop along to The Village Hall in Bibury on Sunday 7th April, and see what you can find!

Regards, Andy.

There’s life in the old prop yet!

Aha! Well what can I say? Our fair at Bibury may well have finished for the winter, but things still happen! 

This weekend  the 23rd and 24th of November, there is a weekend antiques fair run by colleagues near Banbury. 

Antiques at The Holt, is a weekend fair, held twice a year. 

Follow the link and see if you can join us, free entry for anyone buying all my stock!

In the meantime, here’s a prop which will be for sale there!

Moving in soon!

Hello again!

The weather is getting cooler in the evenings, and the nights are drawing in sooner, the solar lights switching themselves on earlier. So I’m thinking of moving inside more, although tonight the sky is rather good already.

Wonder if I could live in here, this manor house will be for sale at Bibury this Sunday, 2nd September. Pop along and see if it suits maybe it’s a miniature of where you live already?

Maybe see you soon?

Regards, Andy.

Our next event will be this Sunday, September 2nd, and we will be on show from 10am, pop in and see us. One new standholder tomus will be bringing a selection of Staffordshire Pottery, also, as often is the case, we have a selection of items for sale, including jewellery,  glass, ceramics, smaller furniture,and items made from brass, including these “Lion Dogs” or “Dogs of Fo”.

Maybe see you there, refreshments are served too.

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.

A hand please?!

Hello all!

Just to say that Bibury Antiques Fair is this Sunday, May 6th.

We are full and will  have a fabulous display for all to see.

If anyone can offer a helping hand to the buyer of this please feel free, it’s heavy and for sale this Sunday, first day out too! Georgian Bureau with a fabulous interior and excellent presence to it, just stands so proud and solid. Looks great but also very useful, many offices would be improved by something like this, here it is just been loaded into the car!

Regards, Andy.
