Is your carriage in the driveway? Are your camels well fed and ready to pull it because however you choose to travel the next exhibition is ten minutes away. This is the premise at the heart of the Thames Valley Antiques Dealers Association's (TVADA) three-day event this week. April 25 -27.
Six members (LASSCO Three Pigeons included) have invited over 20 guest exhibitors to share their premises for these three days. The venues are fairly close together – Dorchester, Wallingford, Huntercombe, Tetsworth and Milton Common, hence the title of the trail. The venues are as varied as the stock and there is ample parking.
AA Antiques Trail signage is already up & our guests here in Milton Common will be ready to stun you with their merchandise from 10 am on Friday.
So in addition to the wonders of LASSCO, whose old pub interior is often likened to an Aladdin's Cave you will have the opportunity to consider buying Josh Lumley's beautiful Oriental and European carpets, La Maison's French mirrors, Marcelline Herald's 17th – 20th century furniture, Mona Rendel's wonderful 20th century glass, Sarah Colegrave's 19th & 20th century paintings, drawings & watercolours & learn about Unimark's revolutionary DNA security marking system.
So please come and enjoy browsing from one oasis to the next helped along by a glass of bubbly at each watering hole!
