that's the name of the hill with the shops which is why I used capitals but it is bloody steep! Luckily the prices are not,I bought a lovely Jane Hamlyn lidded pot last time I had a look for just 12.00!

I pottered about the Lincolnshire Showground fair t'other day and I wasn't too impressed. Half of the outdoor stalls looked like they'd just emptied a skip onto their tables - or onto the floor if tables were too much of a luxury - and pretty much everything indoors was the same old tired chintz.

*sigh*

The day was saved by a couple of Danish chaps selling a few nice bits of Holmegaard, otherwise I would have come back very empty-handed.

Says a lot about your buying habits, Dan.

In fairness, I couldn't make it there 'til Tuesday - by which time a lot of the outdoor dealers had scarpered. I'll generously assume that all the good stuff had been sold or relocated by the time I got there.

But I doubt it.

I got confused and looked for both you and Ed geek

I gave Lincoln a miss as it has had very little retro pottery so far this year

Lincoln quite disappointing this time. Some nice Scandinavian furniture but not much in the way of ceramics. Still... I did pick up some nice Upsala Ekeby pieces by Ingrid Atterberg, but not a great haul for a lot of looking!!!!

that's a long way to travel for a fair!
Newark had a couple of Danish dealers and a guy that specialises in Wiinblad + Swedish pottery

it is INDEED a long way, I am trying to get my boy scouts pottery badge.
Just back so nothing photographed yet, but i will post asap.
I have never found Newark particularly good either, the Wiinblad dealer was undoubtedly Richard Wallis who is a Wiinblad expert and all round good egg. There were two Danish dealers at the last Lincoln with a nice range of pieces but sadly not there this time around.

yes Richard is the Wiinblad dealer.
I bought the Karnivel piece from Simon Schneider who is best known for his appearances on Dickinson's Real Deal

aha! I saw Simon with that piece at Ardingly, nicely painted. You obviously squeezed a better price out of him than I could.

the Lincoln fair was postponed for a week as the venue had been booked before the fair moved from Swinderby airfield to the Lincolnshire showground,this would have caused problems for the dealers who didn't plan around a change of dates.
Newark fair also changed dates so they could follow straight after Lincoln fair Doh!

Looks like I was the only one here who got lucky at Newark?
What did you buy Ed?
