A lovely roomy pre-war  armchair with feather cushion and carving on back, arms and legs in original pinky red velour fabric.   Top quality workmanship and fine patination on the woodwork. £345              
    At our fair here in Bradford on Avon last Saturday, we had a very good crowd of eager buyers, trade was good and there was a pleasant buzz of conversation as old friends met each other as they did the round of the old Mason's Hall and checked through the wide range of goods on offer.  We had Olga Verschoor here from France and you may have missed her big 18th century damask tablecloth - a rare item, or on another stall, a really beautiful country smock in excellent condition, both snapped up by canny trade visitors!  I myself had a happy first shot at my new business, Chairs for Seniors, and was able to sell some to people wanting just such useful, attractive chairs at reasonable prices - luckily I have quite a wide selection of all sizes and shapes, but all with good back support and good traditional covers, to carry on and help people find what they need.   I am pleased to have a new interest and outlet and can see my old friends again rather than shutting up shop completely.
