The attendance was good unfortunately I forgot my camera Ahhh! Still resolved. Mike reported ‘ Another successful show organised by the Dorset Antique Bottle Club in the New Forest at Minstead Village Hall. We had a surplus which helps subsidize our meeting hall rent, hold a regular fish and chip night (normally in Oct) and Christmas bash. Stall numbers were the same as the previous year and there was a good number through the door particularly early on in the day, with early entry up on the previous year. Sales by stall holders were also reported to be good. With a number of club members only having stalls at this show, there is always be fresh to the market stock on offer.
Another feature of the show is the displays that are always set up giving people a chance to see a selection of items from peoples collections including many rarities.’
The date for your diary next year will be Sunday 8th of May. The astute amongst you will notice that Perth is on the previous Day.
Sadly With Perth being on the First Sat in May and Ours being the second. This will mean every seven years the shows will fall on the same weekend. Some attend both so this is a real shame as the distances involved make it impossible to attend both. For us it’s difficult for both to chop and change dates as we are happy with the venue and the hall is busy most weekends we don’t wish to loose it. We hope all understand.
