We’re all getting ready for our first fair of the year in Bibury Village Hall, we will be there on the 7th April 2019! Opening at 10am, and closing at 4pm.
I’m not telling what’s going to be on show by the dealers, but here are a couple of pieces of mine at a bi-annual fair at Hopcrofts Holt Hotel, near Banbury closed down last weekend. The top hat has gone to feature in a local play abut Dr. Doolittle, and indeed I was surprised to see a “push-me-pull-you” in someones kitchen today!
All the best, Andy!
Sorry, there’s a sticking handle which really annoys me, but in haste I missed seeing it through the lense, now sorted and I can sleep again!
Here I’m showing a photo taken a while ago, (the fuschia is the flower in the background), but oddly enough all the items are still for sale, and thought it about time I showed them off! Oak, Yew and Silver. I may bring them to Bibury on October 7th, pop in and find out if I do! The stool looks a bit better now as I have been waxing it occasionally!
We are at the Church end of the village, opposite end to The Swan Hotel, and refreshments are served from around noon, by our friend, including eggs form her own hens!
See you there? Regards, Andy.
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?
Hello, here is a brass St. George slaying the dragon. Today, April 23rd, is St. George’s Day!
Our next fair at Bibury is on May 6th, another Bank Holiday weekend!
See you soon, regards, Andy.
Just a little photograph of what may be drawing closer next month.
Well, there are new stallholders with us, and as yet I haven’t got any photographs of their stock, so here is a set of drawing instruments I photographed last month, fabulous value!
Here they are!
Hello! Here is a photograph of the river and The Swan Hotel in Bibury, and behind me the river runs next to the road and goes past The Village Hall, where Bibury Antiques Fair will be on show on Sunday April 1st! Please call in and peruse the lovely show we will have. Maybe a late Easter present for a friend could be found? There will be several Classic Cars on their way for coffee just down the road too, follow one and see where it goes! Happy motoring!
Hello, I have just found a photograph of a stall from last April, and here it is.
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.
Here I have on offer a sweet bureau, a reasonable piece, and despite the leather needing replacing, could be in your home for Santa to have a mince pie from!
Maybe could be a New Year present for using to write all those thank you cards!
Have a good day!
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.
Been a while since I bought this plane, and now that it’s all clean and sharpened, I had great pleasure using it yesterday.
So, if anyone has any old tools still in their sheds, or workshops which have been long abandoned, I may well be interested in looking at them to see if some can be brought back into use, after all, this one looks as though it could be easily around 150 years old, (most likely more!) and now will be in regular use.
Hope you like it!
