Show Catch up Winternational Berkhamstead Alton Cirencester 2015

Over the last few months It’s been pretty busy show wise with quite a few coming and going. The dreaded Lurgi has come and gone and come back again several times so I thought I’d put a quick summary of the ones I’d been to and what Dorset Items had been discovered.

We had Berhamstead Winternational in Febuary. It was well attended and quite a lot of items found new homes from the sales tables.   Good show with bottles and advertising. The lighting is a bit yellowish.

Alton Show in March was as busy as ever the Flyers went out for the Dorset Club Show in May.No purchases for me but a Weymouth Soda amber Skittle found its way back to Dorset.

Behind my pitch late in the day.

Cirencester Show was the busiest I’d seen for a few years. The rain didn’t dampen spirits and thanks to the Waits who let us in a bit earlier to put our stuff under the tables. They put on a super display as usual and my eye was caught by the wonderful colored topped jugs and the Torquay ware strikers we have a few of our own used by Dorset companies. I think The BBR on the road auction also helped add to the show . Cant wait till next years.
