Antiques roadtrip!

Well: not really! But Norwich is fortunate enough to hold a regular antiques fair at the Norfolk Showground, which Linda and I try never to miss. Despite the cool breeze and threat of rain, we wrapped up warmly and were on the prowl by 10 am.

The gales and rain last night put off many of the outside pitch dealers, and we failed to find anything to add to our collections of British vintage porcelain. Once inside, though, there was lots more to look at. You don't have to be a collector to enjoy these shows - there are some amazing things on offer, including old signage, vintage clothes, taxidermy, rare and beautiful glass and porcelain, books, militaria, paintings and prints...

Including a stop for coffee and cake, we spent three hours (and a few pounds!) and had a thoroughly enjoyable morning.
