ARTHUR WOOD "JOLLY SAD" TEAPOT
We have had many enquiries about the Arthur Wood "Jolly Sad" teapot which appeared on our website when it was first active and which sold very quickly. However, we have to point out that, although this item is no longer available, it still appears on the web page of the person who originally designed this website. However, this latter page has nothing to do with this website - it is simply used as a sample of the web designer's work. We would like to reiterate that this item is no longer available from this website and was removed a long time ago. However, if you would like to call or email us through the contact information we have provided, please do not hesitate to enquire about anything you either see on the website or are interested in buying, as we may well have the item you want in stock. Thank you for bearing with us in this matter.
“BULLDOG BARNS” – NEW ANTIQUES/ COLLECTABLES CENTRE OPENING ON MONDAY, 22nd OCTOBER, 2012
We have pleasure in announcing the grand opening of a new antiques and collectables centre this Monday, 22nd October at 14 Thetford Road, Northwold, Thetford, Norfolk, IP26 5LS.
Bulldog Barns is situated in the grounds of what used to be a service station and consists of two brick buildings and two large barns which have been tastefully refurbished and redecorated to accommodate a variety of antiques and collectables, as well as a unique range of new modern and “shabby chic” furniture and decorative items. In effect, there is something for everyone and it is the ideal place for the discerning collector or homemaker to find what they are looking for, or simply to browse for a unique gift for that “special someone” in your life.
This centre has retained the original “Bulldog” logo from the former service station, so it is not difficult to find. Simply log on to Google Maps or key the post code into your satnav and it will come up as the “Bulldog Garage”, located on the A134 Thetford to King’s Lynn road. However, you will not recognise it as a service station, as a great deal of work has gone into revamping this venue and the result is stunning.
If you can’t make it to the opening on Monday, just make a date to come and browse what’s on offer at this great new venue, which is open every day except Wednesday, when it is closed for the day. Opening hours are 10am to 5pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and 10:30am till 4pm on Sundays. For further information, please call 01366 728038.
We have a small stall in this centre and are looking forward to meeting new customers as well as our “regulars” who know us from the “Past and Present” barn at Risby, Near Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, IP28 6QU.
Hope to see you there soon. Happy hunting!
ANTIQUES ROAD TRIP, BBC 2, FRIDAY, 23rd NOVEMBER, 2012, 7pm
Those of you who are regular viewers of the BBC 2 programme “Antiques RoadTrip” will already be aware that the two antiques centres situated at the Risby Barn Site near Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk have been featured in at least three of the four series that have already been aired.
We are pleased to be able to tell you that the Risby Barns took part in the recent back-to-back filming of two future programmes yet to be aired. We can tell you that Inglenook Antiques and Collectables will feature in the forthcoming series of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip filmed for Children In Need. Without giving too much away, look out for Robin Cousins’purchase when he visits the Past and Present barn on this site!
Enjoy the programme!
24th November, 2012
Well, Robin Cousins & David Harper made a small profit on the piece of Murano glass they purchased from our bay in Past & Present at Risby - we're pleased to know they liked it so much they wanted to take it home themselves! It was a very good show - however, although we realised David Barby had passed away, we hadn't realised he had been taken poorly while making this particular show and our condolences go to his family, friends and colleagues. His sudden demise will also be a great loss to the antiques trade in general, as many have benefitted from his experience and depth of knowledge and have enjoyed his sense of humour, which was captured in the fitting tribute to him at the end of the show.
Below are some pictures what we have on offer in our two bays and extra cabinet at the barn known as "Past and Present", Risby near Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, IP28 6QU (you will find us in the very last two bays, which are in a separate section at the far end of the second half of this barn). Following these pictures, there are a few photos of our new, smaller pitch at Bulldog Barns, Northwold (on the A134), Near Thetford, IP26 5LS.
Stock is replenished on a regular basis so, as you can see, there really is something for everyone! Do come and browse these venues as you never know what you might find!
Look forward to seeing you there!
