Evenings drawing in already! October 12 2014

I never like going to work or coming home in the dark. Time to get out the winter clothes and turn the heating on. Don't forget to check for those moths again. My latest bears have been in the freezer, double bagged, then had a gentle brush afterwards. They don't seem to suffer from their initiation ceremony!

With the new crop of new bears in the museum there is now very little room, so there are some more who have to go. They are in the "New bears for sale" section.

I'm always sad to see some go, but needs must, and they will be off to one of our two units, either

The Antiques Association shop in the Market Place, Woburn or G dad's Collectables, The Galleon Wharf,in  Old Wolverton. We can't resist a browse when we go there.

I'm becoming much more brave at bidding on line at auctions. I watched one live on the computer this week, it's so fast you really have had to have done your homework, and not be tempted to bid over the price that you agreed with yourself! Very exciting. I would like to go to one in person soon.
