Just thought I’d slip a quick post in today, and remind people that the Bibury Antiques Fair returns on April 7th 2019.
I’m looking forward to getting back to the Village Hall and having an enjoyable day with people, and to get a few more places into the visitors book.
Meanwhile if anyone wants to learn about Gillows Furniture from Lancaster, my home City, then here is a set of good modern reference books, which are for sale shout if you are interested, as they are a keen price and these are for sale, at around half their official listing price!
Have a good weekend, won’t be long and I hope the sledge runners get polished if anyone happens to be near snow and have a sledge!
All the best for now, Andy.
Always busy the week before a fair, and I’m very proud of our Bibury Fair, and so pleased to say again we are full despite some people off on holiday, so I think it’s fair to say we are in “Tip Top” condition!
Some people call, this Plum Pudding Mahogany, but this year I think in August that’s just not right, maybe in November or December, certainly not in this heat! Way too warm for Brandy Butter!
Here is a clue…..
Is this the best view? I don’t know!
Upright and better colour!
Trying to catch the colour!
Still trying to catch the colour!
Tilt Top in the sun!
Hello, and as the harvest season and the warm weather seems to conitinue, some people in the country will remember seeing Corncrake becoming exposed as their shelter becomes our food when the fields are harvested. Years ago, it was a long slow gentle affair with scythes and gangs of men, and sometimes women working their way across a field, but with large harvesters, well not so quiet!
This here is a Corncrake Call, and some people will recognise it as it’s a small rattle, can be held and worked in one hand too! Sadly I can’t say it works for Corncrakes as I can’t remember last time I saw one, must have been over 15 years ago, but it does attract Magpie and Jackdaw, as they are close to me and so nosey!
The whole item measuring under 4″.
Have a good weekend, so much on around here, but if a small countryside village is your thing, then pop along to Bibury Antiques Fair this Sunday!
What a sunny morning again and my sunflowers now resting after being bashed by the wind and rain, they are surprisingly heavy when tall!
Here is an old oak panel which I have just buffed up to show some of the carving a bit better, I quite like the flowers!
It will be for sale this Sunday in Bibury Village Hall.
Pop along and say hi!
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?
Upon seeing a client the other day, and listening to them say about how they felt, made me come up with this headline!
Often having a cold or something which just won’t go away, some people say they are “feeling a little chesty!”
Here I have photographed a miniature chest of drawers with locks too, although as yet not cut a key, but I’m sure it won’t be long before there is one. Measuring approx 13″ wide and 11 1/2″ tall, and 6″ deep, a useful item for all sorts of treasures to be stored inside.
Hope you like it, I do, they don’t come around often as nice as this, so please let me know if you are interested.
