ANTIQUES

Covid-19 restrictions - Meetings will resume at Tesco's Community Room from October 2021.
Please watch this space for updates or contact your group coordinator, Niddy Walpole.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We meet at 2.30 on the first Wednesday of the month at Tesco's Community Room.

Our regular speaker is David Palmer, a freelance auctioneer and regular guest on programmes such as 'Flog-It' and 'Bargain Hunt', famous for his colourful waistcoats. He regales us of his monthly auctions and markets and brings us artefacts to guess whether they are originals, fakes or reproductions and their prices.

We regularly have 17-19 people attending and in December we welcomed 3 new members.

All are welcome to join us.

Do come along and give Antiques a try.

Our meeting on September 1st was by Zoom. David was unable to make it and found a replacement, Pamela Whitfield.

Only a small number clicked to join the meeting and missed a very entertaining talk on her life as an Antiques Dealer. This had started back in 1971 when as a young school teacher, she had to raise funds for the school. At her very first carboot sale she raised £75. The purchase of a cranberry Victorian glass jug (gold is included to turn the glass the red colour) she purchased for 75p which she then later sold for £7.50. She was hooked!

Crystolian painting which is on the back of a piece of glass was a Victorian kit for painting a picture, almost like painting by numbers. They have fluctuated in price.On one occasion her second husband picked up an ugly vase but sold for three times the price they purchased it for.

All told in amusing manner an hour flew past.
