I usually go on the Saturday Ed and mostly I find lots of pottery to buy.
The last one was a total bust though....

It's a long way from South Wales on the off chance of finding something.

I went on the Friday last time so it could have been a case of me buying everything so there was nothing left for Dan but that wasn't so.

By chance I am passing by on Saturday on the way to my mother's but am not sure if I can be bothered to make the couple of miles detour and spend several hours looking. We'll see.

It is a long way SP, I see there is another in october , we tend to go 1 week every year when swinderby & Newark follow each other although Swinderby has been a bit of a flop to often for my liking , same old faces same old stuff yr after yr , they even lay the crap out the same way it's as if they have been there all year . Laughter

I have found some lovely pottery there over the past 8 years SP and what's a couple of miles?

I suppose it depends on what your looking for , Newark has usually been pretty good for me , not always but most times . distance does come into it though Dan , £50 in petrol, maybe accomodation for a night , plus entry money, it all adds up probably a ton before you start , not many from the lincoln area would travel over here to Shepton Or Malvern Or Builth wells ( all good fairs ) because of costs .

yes you would have better odds staying for the Lincoln and Newark fairs so you're guaranteed to find some big profit pots

I am changing over the pots that I have on show at the moment and, as always when things have to be put away, I can't find anywhere for them to go. I suspect that this feeling of having far to much stock is the reason for me not feeling too excited but when I am near Peterborough on the A1 who knows what I'll do!

the layout with the outside stalls has slightly changed ( because of the wet ground ) but there also seemed slightly less stallholders than normal . still worth going though .

We went today.The outside stalls were very disappointing.Not many,and the stock quality being pretty indifferent. Partially offset by a better quality inside.

After the comments above from people who visited on Friday, I continued up the A1 on Saturday and gave it a miss.

just returned from the fair and it was back to the standards of pre credit crunch Britain with lots of lovely 20th century design and lots of happy buyers and sellers.
The best fair this year! Most Excellent

Sounds like you had a good day and it is good to have some positive news about a fair.

Nine times in ten when I recognised something nice from my field, it had a price tag that would have made anyone outside of a London gallery weep.

Managed to get by on a few sensibly priced smalls tucked away in darkened corners, and a few speculative items that were cheap enough to take a punt on - but it was hard work.

Did get a bargain early Holmegaard vase, though, so it wasn't all doom and gloom.

Nope. Was there 7am on the dot, Friday morning. 

The main problem with Peterborough has always been that the Thursday, ostensibly set aside for dealers to stall out, is the first day of trading.

Unless you can blag spare car passes, or are willing to pay for a stall with no intention of stalling, the two "official" days are just sloppy seconds.
