Aha! Here we are again. Well, this was photographed at our last event in Bibury, and we are returning there on September 1st. Won’t be long now!
So, just in case you don’t know, this was taken from a piano. Marshall and Rose were early 20th C piano people. There’s lots of info on the internet about them, so I need not redo it. Just thought if someone called Marshall was marrying Rose wouldn’t it be a great for the table plan!
Here it is…….
Hope it makes you smile. Maybe see you soon, perhaps in September, or October, or our final month for this year in Bibury, November!
Our May event was held yesterday, and we had a great start with a coach of visitors, and a few early trade clients, however our afternoon was not as busy at all! A few of our regular dealers were watching a local equestrian event, and so there was a little more space to display a few of my furniture curios awaiting restoration, one being a folding Victorian Bagatelle game, which caused interest, as did a mahogany longcase clock from Dublin! I think I would have sold a banjo barometer too, except I mentioned the problem of taking mercury onto planes as hand luggage, and option of professional shipping, but then something else caught their eye!
I thought a photo of the stand infront of the stage would be appreciated, as there were a few items of interest to visitors still being mulled over late in the afternoon, so here’s a reminder. I can forward your number to the stallholder if you wish to buy anything! As I can to all the dealers too, many times sales are agreed after events. Regards, Andy.
Hello all. We’re back in Bibury this coming Sunday, May 5th. Opening as usual at 10am. This month however there are a few new stands, as some of our regular dealers are off to watch an equestrian event not far away. One of our new dealers is Graham, and here is a small selection of his silver he may well be bringing with him. Call in and see us to find out who else is new this month! There will also be pictures form a new dealer to us, as well as many of our regulars, so it does look like a good show again! Regards, Andy.
Our next event will be this Sunday, September 2nd, and we will be on show from 10am, pop in and see us. One new standholder tomus will be bringing a selection of Staffordshire Pottery, also, as often is the case, we have a selection of items for sale, including jewellery, glass, ceramics, smaller furniture,and items made from brass, including these “Lion Dogs” or “Dogs of Fo”.
Aha! Well, “Gee up!” pronounced as it sounds, used to be a way to get people to “Get a move on!” also for horses too as I recall, I don’t hear it much these days, but I smiled when I was cleaning this, a small jockey with his winnings, yes 10 thousand Guineas!
So, why not ride over to Bibury this Sunday and see what we have on offer? Open from 10am to 4pm, with refreshments, , or as I say “Coffee and Cakes!” from around noon.
