Some people have told me that “Its about time” Bibury Antiques Fair started, and we are back on April 7th, not long now!
Here’s a watch which may be there, a slightly different Swiss 17 Jewel watch, looks fun to me! It may still be getting a replacement glass and a little tidy up by a vintage watch repairer.
Pop along to The Village Hall in Bibury on Sunday 7th April, and see what you can find!
Here is a Rogation mug for Rogation Sunday.
Never heard of it? Well, as a kid in the village choir we used to carry an old plough, painted and cleaned every year, into the church where it would be left in the aisle during the service and then get blessed by the vicar.
This is symbolic of blessing the land and the farmers, workers and the potential crops that all come from the land.
Quite appropriate as I now keep bees, and they are a massively important part of farming, helping to pollinate the crops. Not just honey bees, Bumble bees too!
So, here is a Rogation Mug. They vary massively, but this is one of at least two that will be for sale at Bibury Antiques Fair on May 6th!
Hope you like it! Regards, Andy.

Bibury Village Hall will be the location for us to return to from March 4th, won’t be long now! We will be on show until and including our November event.
Call in and see who will be with us, and what delights we have managed to muster since we were there last November!
Over the next week, I’ll be adding a few photos of what may well be there.
Hello again. Well, yes, Halloween time is here soon, and we are getting ready to put on a great show for visitors this Sunday, November 5th.
We have a great line up, so if you have the chance, call in to view and maybe buy too! This will be our final show this year, as we will be having a break, to return in March!
I haven’t got a spare coffin for halloween, but this Mahogany Cellerette is at least Sarcophagus shape, and is for sale, with a liner inside with six divisions!
Have a good week and hope to see you soon! Bye for now, Andy.
Well, this little gem has been hiding in my kitchen for about 5 years or so, and prior to then was a workshop store for handy stuff, such as my part finished models of projects to be made full size, and all the delicate sketches and drawings of future work. When in the kitchen, was full of flour for bread and jars of honey, and some nice old steak knives which should be used more often, for any supper perhaps. Has a single interior shelf. Yes, I should have measured it, I’ll add sizes soon, unless it sells! Please call or email for info.
Well, here it is, an Oak Arched door cabinet with upper drawer. They keys are around somewhere as I had to remove them to wax and buff this prior to photography.
On show on Sunday October the first……..
Anyone remember the saying ” Pinch, Punch, First of the month, and no return!” Maybe I remember it as I was often on the receiving end, “Happy Days!?”.
Well, here we are again! Doesn’t that sound familiar? Just to let you know that John and Andrew are back with us again after a little break, so why not call in and see what new stock they have, along with our regular dealers.
We open at 10am on Sunday 3rd September, and close at around 4pm. Refreshments are served from around noon, and include sandwiches, tea, coffee and cakes! Hurry, or I’ll get there first!
Here is a photo of John’s stall a few months ago, when he was last with us.
As I was leaving Bibury last Sunday, I just managed to snap a quick photograph of a vintage bus, and here it is!
Hope you approve, but if I had more time, would have been better image!
Hope you like it! More soon! Thanks, Andy.
Hello and Happy Friday Folks!
Should you have time on Sunday 6th August, and happen to be close enough to visit us in Bibury, Gloucestershire, we will be on show from 10 in the morning, to 4 in the afternoon.
Why “Watch out!” ? Well, just because you may well find a few timepieces, and here are some which most likely will be able to be seen on sale soon! Hope you have a good weekend, wherever you go, but it could be even better in Bibury!
