Christmas Sale and Newsletter
We are holding a special Christmas sale of selected items of stock including treen. Go to our website, www.collinsantiques.co.uk , and you will see the discounted items selected in red, then click on it and the discounted price will appear. The price of all small items will include postage, packing and insurance for a next day delivery in the UK only. The sale will start on Saturday 3rd December 2016 at 9.30 am. on a first come first served basis by e-mail or telephone and finish on Saturday 7th January 2017.
We have had a busy year exhibiting at the Ardingly, Shepton Mallet, Builth Wells, Westpoint, Cothay Manor, RHS Rosemoor and the South Molton Pannier Market fairs. The website has also been busy with sales achieved from our own site, the Online Galleries site and the site of the BADA. It has also been noticeable that more people visited the gallery in Bideford, you are most welcome to come in and look, with no obligation to buy.
During the course of the year we have had the pleasure of handling some rare items of treen, such as the wassail bowl, dipper cup, fine burr elm bowl sold recently, and Dobbin the shire horse, which can be found by scrolling down to the end of the treen to the sold items archive. In furniture we have had more oak and country items in stock from chairs to coffers.
We update the websites weekly, so it is well worth keeping an eye on them. One of the latest items of treen is the 19th century fisherman’s oak line and fly box and in furniture the early 17th century oak plank coffer is a good example of an early piece dated to the early part of that century by the arched ends.
We have booked up next year’s fairs at the same locations. There is a question mark over the Cothay Manor fair, but should it be held we shall be there. We may not be able to fit in the South Molton Pannier Market fair as dates clash. We shall be updating the Events page on the website in due course.
The next fair will be at Shepton Mallet on the 13th-15th January 2017, with our usual selection of furniture, treen and pictures. We look forward to seeing you there should you be able to visit. The gallery will be open as usual Tuesday to Saturday up to Christmas Eve, however we shall be answering telephone calls and e-mails through the Christmas holiday period until we open again in the New Year. During the Christmas period the office number of 01237-473103 should be used. We would like to wish all our clients a Happy Christmas and New Year.
