Instagram and the Admiral Vernon

As we take on more good dealers from closing arcades, the Admiral Vernon is cheeringly looking good. We were dangerously near taking in traders in second hand rather than antiques, junk instead of good bric-a-brac, reproduction silver jewellery instead of the real thing, but now we are looking very interesting. The thimble Society is moving with the times, we are on Instagram. Getting to use all the new connective technology is amazing. You can send a photo and receive an instant reply from Venice! how exciting is that. None of us know how Brexit will work but antiques still seem to be enjoyed by thousands. Good hunting. Robert Bleasdale said the prices realised at the sewing tools and mauchlin sale were higher than imagined. A painted Tunbridge piece took £10,500. Wow.
