Hello all! Well, tomorrow, on Sunday 3rd April we will be on show at Bibury Village Hall. We open at 10am and close at 4pm. Whilst I am not sure what the weather will be like, I suggest a decent warm coat just in case, the sunshine is lovely, but it’s not as warm as one thinks. In Bibury there’s plenty to see, by just wandering around, the Church, walks around the area, the Trout Farm is the oldest in Britain I think, and there’s The Catherine Wheel pub, as well as the Swan Inn, and not forgetting a more recent venue, The Twig, a small, but well packed coffee shop, who also sell fabulous sausage rolls, as I found out the other day! So if one gets a little time, stroll around the village and come to see us in The Village Hall near to the Church, and maybe an item or two may catch your liking, there’s lots to see, jewellery, glassware, brassware, ceramics, paintings and pictures, King Penguin books, and even some smaller items of furniture, and maybe some antique woodworking tools. Something I know is certainly going to be there is this recently tidied garden bench, just four feet long, or 120cm it’s an attractive simple comfortable garden bench. Here it is, and have a great weekend, thanks, Andy.
Hello! Just a little note to say that Bibury Antiques Fair is on it’s way back! We return to The Village Hall on April 3rd 2022. Not long to wait now then. I’m just checking how all our dealers are and will be in showing a few photo’s of last years events to tempt you to come along and see us, maybe even buy something! We will be opening at 10am and we close at 4pm. Here are a few photo’s of past events so I hope you like them. Bye for now. Regards, Andy.
Roll on September 5th!
Hello all, and just like many people, I’m finding this year has gone so quick in some ways, and so slow in others! However, my good news is that Bibury Antiques Fair is back on Sunday September 5th, from 10am until 4pm. We can be found easily close to the river and near The Church, at the opposite end of The Village from The Swan Hotel, and The Trout Farm. Here’s a few photographs of our recent events. Regards, Andy.
See you Sunday 6th September!
Hello all. I’d just like to confirm we will be on show on Sunday 6th September! We open at 10am and close at 4pm. A new one way system will be in place, and just to entice you there, here are a few photographs from last year! All the best. Andy.
Stock pricing, and honey cake!
Hello again! It really does seem odd, as so far this year there hasn’t been one of events in Bibury yet, and despite discussing the possibilities, we haven’t a date yet. So, tonight, I decided to photograph a set of glasses for sale, and as I was doing so, thought it rude not to try one of them out, and here I have a small piece of honey-cake to compliment the dram. This isn’t how many Monday evenings are at all! May I wish everyone a good day, or evening, wherever you are, and I am off to list these on our virtual fair, they can be seen at https://www.antiques.co.uk/antique/6-Ale-Glasses Thank you for looking. Andy.
Half Way For Virtual Fair!
Hello all! Well, amazingly we are half way through our May Virtual Fair! With help from antiques.co.uk we have had over 40 items listed for sale for just over 2 weeks, and now a few items have been viewed over 100 times. I think that’s more than most items get viewed at an event, and here’s the one which at the rime of writing, is the most viewed, at 106. https://www.antiques.co.uk/antique/Gilt-and-Laquered-Wooden-Monk other items are close behind at 104 and 103. Have a look and see if you fancy anything. There’s a payment option on the site, or please make an enquiry. Sadly not everyone from the fair can take part in this as they cannot access their stock from closed shops and centres, but we have a good cross section of items listed.Have a good day folks, and here are a few photo’s of the event last year. It really is a sweet Village Hall and I look forward to returning one day. 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.
A little background work, and a surprise to come!
Hello again! I realise it’s been a while since I was in touch, but there have been a few things going on in the background, and one of them is this Rosewood Bookcase which I am restoring ready for sale this summer, offer a price if you want to buy it, sadly the marble top is missing, but a wooden one could go on-top, not everyone likes marble! Hope you like the photographs, and yes, there’s still a bit to be done, but it’s a lot better than when I got it! There’s also something else which I hope some of you may well be interested in, and more about that on Friday I hope! Pop back to find out, but in the meantime, here’s the bookcase. All the best, Andy.
Today, April 5th 2020, would have been the first of our fairs at Bibury Village Hall, one day maybe this year we will return? In the meantime, many folk are re-assessing their lives, work, hobbies, and in some cases, looking at what they have! It’s over 30 years ago that I started buying a few reference books to learn about furniture, clocks, and as I like glass, then that too. Here is a little area of my study as it is now, with some of those items, as well as bits and bobs picked up on the way, from friends, all having sentimental value. One day when we return, people will be able to add to their collections, and the items gained will help the times be remembered. Bye for now, Andy.
Time Rolls By!
Hello all! Recently I have been getting ready for the fair returning to Bibury, and I have noticed that time keeps whizzing by, but it is nice that the evenings are drawing out. It won’t be long before we will be unloading by the riverside and into The Village Hall. Here’s an item one could see for sale there, a small 8 Day Brass Lantern Clock, hope you like it. Thanks for looking, Andy.
