Description

Our meetings are very friendly and informal and we have always had good group participation. We will generally agree amongst ourselves which area of antiques and collectables we would like to find out more about, then we research the chosen subjects and discuss them at our monthly meetings. Most of our members are keen collectors and more than willing to bring along their treasures to share with us which means we very often have an interesting display from which we can try to identify the makers markings, or, as in some cases, suggest what the said item may be.

We visit antique centres, to date we have visited Horncastle, toured the Royal Crown Derby factory, looked for interesting items at Arthur Johnson's Auctions and browsed the antique aisles at Melton Mowbray Cattle market. We're now planning new visits , to peruse the antique shops and search out any bargains Until joining the group some of us had never come across a "Fairing", didn't know what a "pipe tamper" was or looked like and never bought and sold anything on ebay, it's just been a continuous learning curve. How had we come so far knowing so little!!!
