Welcome to our latest newsletter, this time last year we would have just done the fabulous Wilton House Antiques Fair in Wiltshire and getting
ready for the Open Art Fair in London, with two more exhibitions to follow. Sadly the open art fair shut after two days and this is where our exhibitions ended due to the dreaded pandemic. A year has passed and
what a journey we have all had to go through, throughout the world.
The internet, love it or hate it, we all have to praise. It's enabled us
to be able to see family and friends no matter where they are in the
world, allowing us to shop and keep up with the news and facts.
This leads me on to special thanks as always for your continued support
in purchasing these wonderful pieces just by seeing images and reading
our descriptions online. Without your support, we would not be where we
are today. THANK YOU. X
We hope you are in good health, spring is officially just around the
corner and this means that it will soon be Easter! A time for
celebrating new life and encouraging hope. Which seems very fitting in
today's trying times.
It is also a time for gift giving. We all love a chocolate easter egg,
but why not treat someone you love with something really special from
