September Newsletter 2011
Now that our summer has definitely come to an end, we are fast approaching a heavy schedule of antique fairs both in London and the provinces. This is always a very exciting time as our renowned dealers choose from their stock the special items they will be exhibiting, including never before seen items carefully selected for their WOW factor!
If you require any complimentary invitations for the fairs mentioned in our Dates for your Diary section listed at the end of this letter, please do contact us.
Don't forget we are open Monday to Saturday and are always delighted to let you browse around the showrooms at your leisure.
Looking forward to seeing you soon,
Lennox, Sue and all at the galleries.
National Antiques Week 14th – 21st November 2011
This is a well supported event organised by Antiques News & Fairs to promote the enjoyment and fun from collecting antiques. We mustn't forget the 'Green' credentials that antiques have. As we have mentioned before they offer unique style and value for money but the annual emissions of an antique piece can be as little as one sixteenth of those of its modern equivalent.
We will be announcing in our next letter just what we will be doing to mark the week.
National Antiques Week, BBC Homes and Antiques magazine and Antiques News and Fairs have joined forces to find Britain's best antiques establishments. From early October you will have the chance to vote for your favourite shop and have the opportunity to win one of ten prizes all valued at around £200. If you enjoy visiting our galleries we hope you will take the time to vote for us and hopefully you will win one of the wonderful prizes. We will include a link in our next newsletter, where you will be able to have the chance to vote.
Tunbridge Ware Object of the Month September 2011
A Tunbridge Ware magnifying glass with geometric inlay to the frame and a stickware handle.
Sherlock Holmes, the fictional detective created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was noted for drawing large conclusions from small observations. It could well be said that we too are reaching conclusions about our Object of the Month from a small observation.
