Hello all. We’re back in Bibury this coming Sunday, May 5th. Opening as usual at 10am. This month however there are a few new stands, as some of our regular dealers are off to watch an equestrian event not far away. One of our new dealers is Graham, and here is a small selection of his silver he may well be bringing with him. Call in and see us to find out who else is new this month! There will also be pictures form a new dealer to us, as well as many of our regulars, so it does look like a good show again! Regards, Andy.

A Delft Shelf Elf?
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!
A Fuschia Sale?
Here I’m showing a photo taken a while ago, (the fuschia is the flower in the background), but oddly enough all the items are still for sale, and thought it about time I showed them off! Oak, Yew and Silver. I may bring them to Bibury on October 7th, pop in and find out if I do! The stool looks a bit better now as I have been waxing it occasionally!
We are at the Church end of the village, opposite end to The Swan Hotel, and refreshments are served from around noon, by our friend, including eggs form her own hens!
See you there? Regards, Andy.
Moving in soon!
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?
May Day Sunshine!
Hello! It’s May Day and there is sunshine, what a lovely surprise!
This weekend is Bibury Antiques Fair so if nearby, and yes, there is a lot going on, being a Bank Holiday, please find a space t park and pop in to peruse our treasures for sale.
We open at 10am and close at 4pm, and refreshments will be available from noon, here is a cabinet of jewellery that you may like a few items from?
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!
Thanks to all the dealers and visitors who were with us at Bibury last Sunday, we had a busy day, and the weather was pretty good too, much better than the rain we have had recently, so the river wasn’t as clear as usual.
This is a photograph of one of the stands, I hope it gives a little feel of the variety of items we have on sale at this fair.
Have a good week.
Just hoping the weather doesn’t fool us again as this Sunday, April 1st we will be on show at Bibury Village Hall, from 10am to 4pm.
Refreshments from noon too.
There will be a great display of items for sale including jewellery, glass, boxes of all kinds (see the photo below), pictures, and a few nice items of furniture too!
Maybe see you there?
