Wow! Autumn feels as though it really is here now as the dampness rises from the fields in the early evening as a wonderful magical mist. However, this is making the evenings cooler, so if you get a chance, call into Bibury Antiques Fair this coming Sunday, 4th September, we are open from 10am to 4pm. My breakfast this morning was Trout, with bread and butter, and Bibury has the oldest Trout Farm in England, and I can recommend it! So, there’s food to buy in Bibury, as well as antiques this Sunday, and if the weather is good, there’s the option of just sitting on a wall and watching the world go by whilst enjoying a coffee from the cafe Twig, or lunch at The Catherine Wheel, or checking out one of the many venues in the area for a future wedding or party! Lots to do near here, and some of the short walks do go through interesting villages nearby, some have pubs along the way too! Naturally, an item from our fair could be a wonderful gift for yourself or a friend, and could bring many happy memories of the day for years to come, so I hope you find something! We are coming to the end of a Bank Holiday weekend, but “Other weekends are available”! Regards, Andy.
Well, Bibury Antiques Fair is having a break until the spring…….. BUT…….. Should people have time over the weekend of 23rd and 24th November, there’s an antiques fair on at The Holt Hotel, Steeple Aston, Oxfordshire. I’m bowled over, and going to be there again! Oh yes, and I’ll have this Sycamore Dairy Bowl with me, and I think it’s got a good colour and patina, but I’ll have to let you decide if you agree! This bowl is about 12″ in diameter, and 3 1/2″ high. Here it is….. The link for the Holt event is http://www.antiques-at-the-holt.co.uk/ Maybe see you there, and if I remember rightly, the steak sandwiches are very nice there too!
Just thought I’d slip a quick post in today, and remind people that the Bibury Antiques Fair returns on April 7th 2019.
I’m looking forward to getting back to the Village Hall and having an enjoyable day with people, and to get a few more places into the visitors book.
Meanwhile if anyone wants to learn about Gillows Furniture from Lancaster, my home City, then here is a set of good modern reference books, which are for sale shout if you are interested, as they are a keen price and these are for sale, at around half their official listing price!
Have a good weekend, won’t be long and I hope the sledge runners get polished if anyone happens to be near snow and have a sledge!
All the best for now, Andy.
We’re only a hop, skip and a jump away!
Our last fair of the year in Bibury will be held on Sunday November 4th.
Here’s a photo of one of our stalls from last month, and there are similar areas offering jewellery, glass, brass, pictures, furniture and more once inside the hall. We open at 10am, and refreshments are available from about 1130 am until 330 pm.
Pop in and say hi, I’ll be there!
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?
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!
One year ago!

Here is a photograph of the river and The Swan Hotel in Bibury, and behind me the river runs next to the road and goes past The Village Hall, where Bibury Antiques Fair will be on show on Sunday April 1st! Please call in and peruse the lovely show we will have. Maybe a late Easter present for a friend could be found? There will be several Classic Cars on their way for coffee just down the road too, follow one and see where it goes! Happy motoring!
