Ample Warning

I thought you might like to make a note of this in your diaries:

Monday 23-Sunday 30 November 2009

is the First


There has been a National Antiques Day for some time, but following feedback from national and regional antique dealers' associations this is to become National Antiques Week.

The theme for the week will be

"Antiques are Green"

All members of WEADA (The West of England Antique Dealers Association), of which Dairy House is one, have been asked to promote the week and encourage people to think more about investing in antiques as part of the campaign. Other Associations across the country will be participating, too, so look out for details of activities in your area.

I'm not sure yet what we shall be doing at Dairy House, but watch this space to see plans unfold. Any suggestions gratefully received. I had thought it would be a good time to finally arrange a bloggers day, but realise that the November Vintage & Handmade Fair is at the end of the week, so we shall all be making our way to Chipping Sodbury rather than Semley on the Saturday! But we shall certainly be doing something ...

Update: I stand corrected ... the Vintage & Handmade Fair at Chipping Sodbury is on 14 November and NOT Saturday 29 November. How did I manage to get that wrong?!

New Beginnings ...

Most of you will have come across Dairy House through , Vintage to Victorian, but I thought it was time that Dairy House Antiques had its own blog as well as the more formal website. There are plenty of changes afoot, and now seems a good time to start this new blog.

I've tried to set up an appropriate template but would very much appreciate your comments as to whether the colours I've chosen make the text easy to read, or the opposite. If it looks awful do please say. I'd like to get it right!

I do hope you'll pop by from time to time to see how we're progressing, and as soon as our new dealers have joined us I plan to tell you a little about all our dealers and what a visit to Dairy House Antiques has in store.
