I did my best to record, for blog posterity, Monday's IACF outdoor antiques fair at Swinderby airfield but the resulting photographs are hardly exciting...
...in fact the weather gave it such a gloomy, doomy atmosphere that I felt sure I was stuck in Sunday night's episode of Wallander!
Buying and selling were brisk despite the weather and we managed to find some treasures.
First a Victorian Suffolk Puff patchwork cot cover
A beautiful 19th century black velvet bag embroidered with brightly coloured beadwork designs, Native American in origin and showing the influence of Christian missionaries.
And a slightly naughty, very humourous Georgian guide book to Bath...
...Gosh, I haven't heard THAT name since I was a bored 6 year old!
