Well, just like someone moving home, here’s a set of new (oldish) keys, clearly two of them are later! They belong to an old walnut desk, and I think the ticket relates to the 1960’s or 70’s, but will research the telephone codes another day. Interestingly, the desk was sold in Bath, and went to Manchester. I am now working on the item, and pleased to have the keys, even though some of the locks appear to have been replaced. The label forms a fun bit of provenance I think! Keys are used to open doors as you know, and we are hoping to be able to open our doors this year. We are due to return to Bibury Village Hall in April, but we will be confirming this as soon as possible, so keep an eye open! Regards, Andy.
Our Virtual Fair is Open Now, and tomorrow, and ……..
Hello all! I have some amazing news. Bibury Antiques Fair may only be a small event, however we believe we are the first Antiques Fair to have a “Virtual Fair”. Yes! With the help of Iain Brunt, and his website, we have our listing at https://www.antiques.co.uk/seller-items.cfm?maxrows=25&seller=4448&order=priceDESC&start=2 have a look and see what you find! This will be live for longer than our usual time, of just one Sunday a month, but we are entering exciting times, and so if you like it, we hope to be able to continue, so please have a puruse and possibly even a purchase! Shown here just to make you hurry, is “A Russian Bangle”. Hope you like it, and thanks for looking. Regards, Andy.
