Sweet Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day Folks!

Some of you may not know that St. Valentine is one of Beekeepings patron Saints, there are several!

St. Ambrose, St. Benedict, St. Gregory, St. Bartolomew, St. Gobnait, St. Kharlamii, St. Dominic also called St. Modomnoc,  and St Valentine. There are undoubtably others!

So whilst the bees around the country are stirring, responding signs that the weather is getting warmer, the days longer, so too are some of our dealers for Bibury Antiques Fair getting ready for our first event of the year on April 7th. See you there perhaps? Other antiques fairs are available, more news soon!

Regards, Andy.

April 1st and no joke!

Hello all!

Yes, we return on April 1st, and it’s no joke! Sadly we missed our first event of the year with the weather chaos, and despite me travelling a little that weekend, and not going far, I saw both clear roads and cars being dug out of deep snow all within a few yards, such was the complexity of drifting snow, dry stone walls and five bar gates!

A new stallholder to Bibury, who used to be a regular for a long time at our other events, will be coming, and here are a couple of  insights of some of her stock, as ever a good display will be guaranteed, and if nearby, do call in as we will be a great show this time!

See you soon! Regards, Andy.

What a gem!

Hello again!

Well, some time has gone by since our last Bibury Antiques Fair, our next one being on September 3rd.

The fair is already looking like it should be a busy one, judging by the amount of stalls already booked!

Should you be nearby and fancy a look into one of “Englands Vintage Village Halls”, this really is a gem, and here are a few items of jewellery which were photographed in August, and similar items may well be displayed in September.

Hope to see you soon. Regards, Andy.

May you join us?

Hello again!

Time rolls on as ever and our next event in Bibury Village Hall will be on May 7th, open from 10am to 4pm.

We shall have a great display for you, and we have a couple of new dealers to us, to fill the gap made by others family commitments, so a surprise for all of us.

I have been busy doing a few restoration projects and some of my work will be on show, meanwhile this is a selection from John’s stand, he always has some interesting things, treen, ceramics, glass and metalware being amongst them.

Regards to all, Andy.

Cornucopia Corner!

Wow! There’s a word I don’t use much!

But I took this photograph of a corner stand at Bibury (was the December fair!) and thought that it should be shared as I think it looks good!

Why not pop along this Sunday to see what we have on offer, as there should be 2 new dealers with us!

I’ll be there, as ever, with a few of my bits and bobs too, including an oak longcase clock if I can fit it in the car!

Whatever you do, have a good weekend, and don’t forget “The Boat Race!”

Regards, Andy.
