  A bit of a masculine theme to my buying recently... from mint condition vintage denim... extremely rough and ready French workwear....

As always, expect to find an eclectic mix of stock on my stand. If you scroll down the sidebar, you can see where I am trading next.

Summer Fairs....

Well, at long last Summer seems to have arrived. We have a busy schedule of Antique Fairs and of course quick trips over the channel to France to purchase some new stock.

Our French stock is always popular, and we never seem to have it for very long. We have our facebook page here if you would like to keep up to date with our latest finds.

If you scroll down the sidebar on the right side of this page, you can see where we will be selling over the Summer. If you click on the image it will take you to the website or blog of the organiser. Hope to see you somewhere soon.
