UK Antiques Fairs & Lincoln

Peterborough Festival of Antiques. Image from http://www.festivalofantiques.co.uk.

2017 was the first year we tried the big antique fairs. There were so many signs to the Peterborough Festival of Antiques it seemed rude not to go. There was an entrance fee to be paid but it was a great day out. As anywhere, there were expensive quality collectable items but still lots of low price bargains to be had. Franc had a crowd around him when he was explaining to a stallholder the finer points of a silver hallmark. In this business, you are always aware of what you don’t know but we have come a long way from our humble beginnings.

The great thing about fine vintage and antique jewellery is that you can wear it a few times and sell it on without losing money. I love modernist Norwegian and Danish enamelled silver. I found a beautiful necklace and earrings set in Peterborough to replace the one I had recently sold but in a different colour. We have some nice examples of Danish and Norwegian enamelled silver Jewellery here in our Ebay store.

Southwell Racecourse Antiques Fair, hosted by Field Dog Fairs, near Nottingham is not quite the size of Peterborough but was equally rewarding. There were sellers with motorhomes selling under awnings. Maybe this is us in a few years – great on a sunny day.

Lincoln

We always combine business and pleasure. We try to do different things but almost inevitably resort to hunting for treasure.

Attending a friends wedding in Lincoln presented such an opportunity. The Battlestar landed at the municipal camping site next to Hartsholme Country Park. You can take a taxi into the city centre for a small fixed fee. The city is very hilly, good for your ‘steps and stairs climbed’ app stats! The city features an interesting castle and the fabulous cathedral which are not to be missed. Amongst the many antique and vintage shops, we found Lincoln Antiques Collectables on Steep Hill in the old town and unearthed an 18th century dance card with evening bag, which is currently for sale on our eBay store.

    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

  65. And I had time to see Ms. Yuni several times looking at my crotch. Actually, the size of my trunk is not that long, only the average Indonesian, but the diameter is quite large, about 5 cm.
