Vintage Textiles and Costume Day @ Dairy House - updated with list of stallholders

A date for your diary
Sunday 11 April 2010

10.00 am to 4.00 pm

@ Dairy House Antiques

Some of the specialists you know well from the West Country circuit will be displaying their gorgeous textiles and costume under the verandah at Dairy House on a sunny day next April. They will be joined by a number of Dairy House dealers who have an interest in textiles and it is anticipated that there will be at least 15 stallholders. What a grand opportunity to browse and buy from the best in the West!

This will be the first of what we hope will become regular events at Dairy House and we look forward to welcoming you.

As you can see there will be plenty going on. The Silver Coffee Machine will be on hand all day to provide tea/coffee/hot chocolate and maybe the odd traybake. Unfortunately the kitchen (if it can be called that) at Dairy House doesn't lend itself to offering beverages to the public, but Liz and I can heartily recommend Guy's goodies!! In addition, we can recommend Pythouse Walled Garden and the Beckford Arms (both less than 15 minutes away) if anyone requires lunch.

Mellow Yellow ...

Moira and I played with all the yellow bits and bobs here this morning. We're quite getting into the colour-coordinated photoshoot. It's amazing how many things we find when we set our minds to it. I think we're both determined to try and avoid typical Christmas colours, although we may find that we have to use red and green before too long! Until then we'll keep trying to find 'other' colours.

Hopefully I haven't duplicated any of the photos - no doubt you'll tell me if I have!!
