Newark Antiques Fair was amazing!  The weather was beautiful, very hot.  I had blisters on the soles of my feet by the end of the day.  But all worth it! The next one is on 9th and 10th June! See you there?

My next post will be about what i actually bought.... so please follow my blog for news on the next post!


  1. Weep! Why do we not have these in Manchester? A M A Z I N G stuff!

  2. Its well worth comming down from Manc to visit Claire. Mr Bakelite, who i met was amazing. Stood chatting to him for ages. He know loads about it. And he was selling bakelite bangles for £15!!!! yes £15!! I bought one from the 40s, olive green with brass insets. Will post a piccy when i get round to posting my 'what i purchased post'

  3. Really want to see what you got now (no nazi stuff I take it?), looks like an amazing day out.

    (Glad comments are working again, wondered if you'd blocked me 5 minutes after I said I'd become a follower - seemed a little harsh ;-) )

  4. Generous, I Can’t seem to be able to see anything similar on Yahoo – Guess I will have to keep it bookmarked!
