there was a dragonfly charger in one of the hall's for £175 but would take £150. modern and not for me. i would have brought it but with a few local auctions coming up i decided to save a few ££££ and might grab something better there.

it was a above average CC spear that i brought. i will stick it on ebay when i get home and see what happens.

if it's the one that I saw at Peterborough then it's been doing the rounds for 3 or 4 years now
I almost bought it once when the seller told me £150 but then I spotted the dreaded Nikky Mozzarella monogram

no I didn't buy a thing but still thought it was a great fair,I loved the ecclectic and unusual mix on offer although the indoor stalls were still trying to flog the same tired old stuff Sleep

I wasn't too impressed with Newark this time - very few items to ooh and aah at.

Last time it seemed to be packed out with very nice quality Scandinavian-influenced furniture for teeny-tiny sums that left me cursing my lack of space to store them.

That said, I did pick up a great wall lamp by Fontana Arte (Murano) yesterday - identical to THESE - that fortuitously matches an odd one I bought on the continent.

Lincoln/Newark again next week - I'll be hitting up both of them as a buyer (well, hopefully. 'Browser' might be more apt).

Lincoln entrance is half price for the first day (and a little bit cheaper than that if you buy them online in advance, although it's likely a little too late to get 'em now).

Well I had a decent enough day - got a giant Danish teak extending coffee table, a few bits of rare-ish WMF Ikora, a couple of bits of Scottish studio glass, a couple of anonymous glass bits, and a possibly-Scandinavian pottery bowl that caught my eye.

Photos up soon. Laughter

Did Lincoln yesterday - other than a rare-ish Anglepoise 1209 lamp and a few Danish pottery bits it was a bit barren for me. Too many stalls of unfashionable brown furniture and assorted worthless tut.

Lots of empty spaces where stalls should've been too.

I have just had a look at these fairs for april , Swinderby is 9th -11th, newark is 12th -13th, as this is the only time in the year both fairs run into each other , it's of no use to me , so travelling and accomodation / entrance fees ,for us would be around £230 plus spends on items could be best part of £1,000 so not really worth it , it is very bad planning as Shepton mallet has a huge fair on sunday the 8th and malvern has giant fair easter monday 9th , I think these two will be our best bet this time around.

surely you can't include spends on pottery as they are investment in stock?

no i am not complaing about any of the spends pottery or otherwise , and would happily go at other times ,but the dates are in conflict with other meetings that cost far less, if they had another week in the year where they doubled up I would gladly go .
