A busy weekend at the Antiques Fair
This is a taster of the dozens of photographs I took in the Pharmacy building. All beautifully hand sewn by a band (100 strong) of embroiderers who volunteer here. Close ups and more photo to come when they load faster than one an hour . . .
I have hardened my heart and put out some of my collection of Torquay pottery - though I needn't have bothered, as folk aren't really collecting it these days. The big copper Gothic ash tray was picked up time and time again, but no one was tempted to buy it.
I don't have a set speciality for my stock - I buy what interests and delights me. Eclectic is the word, I think.
My Military Advisor's side, and a couple of bits of furniture we managed to squeeze into our space. As you can see, we have the most amazing setting - though it was a little on the chilly side as it is meant to be winter for the plants in the big dome (they are plants of the Mediterranean Climate Zone).
