Hello again all.
Just a quick catch up after the fair today and I tried to photograph my favourite item I saw today, a difficult challenge as it was made from Lead Crystal. Without proper time allowance, or backdrops, I came up with this photo. This item is available for sale, I can give your number to the dealer if you are interested!
I’d be happy to have this perched on a window as I think it may be a little too good for my current car! Maybe if I had a falconry business I could buy it as a paperweight!
What would you do with it?
I am pleased to say that we have Lawrence Bunn joining us for our September 2nd Bibury Antiques Fair. Lawrence is a dealer and collector of Staffordshire, and this will be his first fair with us in Bibury.
Here are a few photographs of some of his stock which he will be bringing with him, there will be more. Pop along and see, he is bringing a rather nice manor house with him too, I’ll add that next week, but if you fancy a new home, they will be one for sale!
On July 1st, which is this coming Sunday, we will be on show at Bibury Village Hall, a splendid village and venue. Although we are a small antiques fair, we do offer a fabulous mixture of items there’s usually something for most people to enjoy looking at, and quite often buying.
Jewellery is often a top seller, however this photo was taken last month, and I thought it looked good, what do you think?
See us there on Sunday from 10am till 4, and refreshments are served from around 1130, so one can have tea, coffee, sandwiches and cake in the sun on the tables outside the hall, or inside if too hot! All this whilst thinking what to buy, what a day it could be!
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!
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?
Hello! Well, is it a Good Friday? Well, according to the weather forecast it will be soggy around the edges, and bees will not be flying unless sheltered against a wall or in a sunny spot if they are lucky!
So, final waxing and dusting of a few bits and bobs should be able to continue indoors!
Here is a table top which just looks fab in the sunshine!
Pleased to say that I have a card table for sale now, here it is too, a fine mid 18th C. wonderful colour mahogany table with fabulous legs! How can they be resisted?
Why not gamble on this and make an offer, but beware, despite being only on show in mid March for the first time, your offer may well be accepted! Gamble and try, we could both win! I’m not very good at poker, but I could be tempted!
Just a quick note to say that due to weather forecasts and the amount of concern for travelling on the roads, we have decided to change plan and not have our fair this Sunday March 4th.
We will be on show Easter Sunday, April 1st 2018!
Wow, what a bright sunny day on Sunday and so clear, could see for miles.
Tonight, well, minus 3 here, which not cold for many, but the Camelia is well wrapped as it was doing so well this year too, but I fear this may upset the buds if it gets colder.
The plan (subject to being frozen out or snowed in!), is to have our first Bibury Antiques Fair this coming Sunday, March 4th. The weather may well interfere with this, so please call, and unless I add news to the contrary, we will be on show, and I’m looking forward to it, this barometer may be there, and look, as I suspect the gauge will be different then too!
Coldstream, weather forecast? No!
Gordon Bennet? No not him either, maybe a relative though!
Robert Bennet was a Cabinet maker, Upholsterer and Undertaker in Coldstream.
I found the label underneath a Gypsy Table, and here it is.
With the change in temperature, and the direction of air, I thought the word Coldstream was appropriate!
Hopefully the weather will warm up a little for the first Bibury Antiques Fair on March 4th, and maybe you will have time to join us there?
