Day Out at the Antiques Fair
You will have to bear with me at the moment, as I am going absolutely FLAT OUT here, painting and gardening etc. However, we felt we deserved a day out on Saturday and we drove up to the Antiques Fair at Builth Wells. Here are a few pics:
All the tools you could ever need, neatly laid out on display.
A lovely stand with lots of interesting pieces.
OH would have loved to have brought both these chairs home with him - especially the primitive chair above. The Windsor chair boelow is made in yew, bar the seat which is elm, I believe.
A bevy of beautiful dolls await new homes.
The Kitchenalia shop is always one of my favourites and there were lots of people shopping there.
Looking down from the gallery.
Plenty of jewellery stalls. My girls would have had a lovely time looking round!
My little treat - 6 more old bobbins with lovely spangles. The one far left just HAD to come home with me because it "spoke" so eloquently - you used what you had in those days . . .
This was OHs indulgence - apparently an "Irish kettle" - more like teapot, though I have a wicked suspicion it may have been a "po" to collect urine for dyeing purposes - hence the spout!!
It is now where the bananas are kept . . .
