Indiana? No! But what was his dad called?

Hello Folks!

Well, what am I on about you may well ask!

This storage label was found a few months ago on the back of something, and I can’t remember what it was, maybe I’ll find it again, or maybe it has gone back to the client!

It made me laugh as it made me think of the films of Indiana Jones, but I can’t recall what his dad was called!

See you soon with more news!

Have a good week, Andy.

Waiting for the call?

Hello folks.


Well, I know that one Swallow doesn’t make a summer, but they are here! Pretty well around their usual time, and as ever, I get to see one and then a few, then they just go quiet for a few days or so, then more join the advance party.

So, I next start waiting, stretching my ears to hear a call, yes Cuckoo!

Here is a treen Cuckoo call I was given from a stallholder years ago, I have cleaned it and waxed it, mostly it sits in a bookcase, but I do use it, and yes it almost always gets a reply!

Don’t tend to use it much as I was told that by using them, it gets a reply as another male is defending territory, and if I persist, will go away, and despite their parasitic breeding habits, I do like to hear them.

Here it is, hope you like it.




Next Post Please!

Hi Folks!

April 2nd, yes this coming Sunday, sees us returning to Bibury Village Hall where Matt will be on show with a couple of post boxes, as well as other items too.

Dealers will be there selling glassware, jewellery, mirrors, treen, candlesticks, and all sorts of treasures to be enjoyed, and kept as a momento of the day or weekend!

Hope you can join us on your travels through Gloucestershire.

Open 10am to 4pm, easily found, we are a nice walk away from The Swan Hotel, The Catherine Wheel Inn, William Morris Tea Room, The Trout Farm, where lunches, nibbles and drinks can all be enjoyed.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Regards, Andy.



Mooove over, we want to see!

Hello Folks!

Whilst driving towards Bibury early this evening, I came across a field of lovely cattle, and several calves. Stopping to watch them, they came over to see what I was doing just over the wall from their field. 

Hope you like and if driving into Bibury from Burford, keep an eye out on the left hand side, and they may well greet you too!

Have a good week, and should you be passing close to Bibury on Sunday April 2nd, pop into The Village Hall to see what we have on offer for sale, we may only be in a small hall, but it’s a lovely place and we have some great stock!

Here is someone that can’t join in at The Hall!

Regards, Andy.


A “Little Saw”after the fair!

Hello all!

Thanks to all the dealers, visitors and customers that made our first fair of the year in Bibury a very pleasant event. Reports of dealers selling, and bags being seen leaving, were obvious. We seemed to be steady for most of the day, not a heaving busy fair, but the majority of visitors left with a momento of the day!

This was what I came home with, and I’m really looking forward to using it, a small saw with a home made guard, after a clean up, I think this will do many small jobs repairing and making drawers and the like.

Why not pop along next month, April 2nd, and see what you can go home with?

Oh yes, and I can recommend the pizza at The Catherine Wheel!

Regards, Andy.


Thank Someone its Friday!

Well, it’s Friday!

Sunday sees us set up the Bibury Antiques Fair, and I hope the weather is better, otherwise I’ll bring a mop for the floor!

We hope to be a fabulous display that can’t be resisted by visitors, and will always help carry items to cars once bought! Bring a brolly!

Pop in and say hi, hope that you have a good start to the weekend. Here is a photo of one of the stalls last December.

Regards, Andy.


In like a Lion………

The weather seems to be much more friendly today, after ripping a few impressive trees from their roots over the last week or so, so the saying about March coming in like a lion sprang to mind. Although March 1st today, and quieter, we will wait to see what the weather brings us for this coming Sunday, March 5th, when we have our first Bibury Antiques Fair. Open from 10am to 4pm, lunches can be enjoyed at The Swan Hotel, The Catherine Wheel, and The William Morris. Have a great day!

Here is a barometer which will be for sale, and as one can see by the reading, this is quite a low pressure sales pitch!

Pop along and see us in Bibury Village Hall, we have a great selection of dealers selling fabulous stock, most of it a sensible size to take home on the day!

Happy Hunting!

All the best, Andy
