   It's just a year since I posted my notice for a clear-up, clean out, very informal fair here in the wine cellars of my house and in the Mason's Hall next door, Bradford on Avon, BA15 1LN. We had piles of lovely stuff ferreted out from cupboards, lofts and old trunks, new and old, humble and grand, and a lot was quickly mopped up by eager buyers looking for bargains and something a bit different.  The range was huge, from Russia to China and Africa to India, and knowledgeable buyers found some real treasures.  Many sellers have asked for a repeat event to clear more space, and enjoyed the experience of being on the other side of the counter, so here goes!  I plan to have a similar event next Sunday,
June 15th  2014, in similar spaces with table and chair for each seller, starting 9a.m. ending 3pm.with setting up the previous afternoon, Sat. June 14th after 3p.m.  Access is rather limited so you may have to be patient about parking.  Quick unloading is essential and all cars can be parked in the Station car park.
  As soon as I receive enough applicants, I will sort them out and will be giving priority to private sellers, as last year,  and making sure we have a wide range of goods   The most important thing you can do to ensure the success of the event will be to distribute at least ten flyers amongst your friends and contacts, and I will send these to you when I confirm your booking.   This worked very well last year and we had a record attendance of new buyers as well as plenty of old friends and this gave the whole thing a jolly atmosphere, enjoyed by everyone.  I will do all I can to make the event fun and profitable and if you have never had a stall at an antique fair, you might find this was a really exilarating and amusing way to dispose of your surplus and earn some money on the way!  Donations will be made to Dorothy House and the cost of stalls will be £25 per table payable a month in advance of the fair.  Cheques to E.Baer, please.
