Today we trotted off to Wadebridge to the Antique Fair. It wasn’t as big as some of the fairs I’ve been to in the past (oh, Builth Wells, how I miss you!), but it was still very good. Good enough for the BBC to send Tim Wonnacott to film an episode of Bargain Hunt, at any rate.

If it hadn’t started raining this afternoon, we’d be sitting out in the garden using them with something Pimm’s-y at this very moment.
