Tuesdays visit to Sunbury Antiques Market was more like a visit to the set of Narnia. Dealers had arrived in the early hours and by the time I had arrived the thick frost that had descended on turf had also covered most artifacts. A visible covering like a dusting of icing sugar glistened in the morning light. The air was crisp and dealers stood there shivering.
There were a few wardrobes to step into and the only lion to be seen was a stone garden statue. There were the odd items of vintage tackle but nothing worth having and more the point nothing I really needed, well not at the prices being asked. There were a few cane rods but I have been threatened that if I take anymore of these items home they may be placed somewhere where it would hurt.
There were several other items had I had the space I would have been tempted to buy. There were some old metal medical canbinets, an art shop paint merchandising unit with each paint colour detailed with a Dymo label.
