Got the keys!

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.

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.

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!
