Sun and Excitement

The light is becoming brighter the sun has come out and an energy runs through collectors and dealers alike. There is an air of excitement in the Portobello inspite of a sharp east wind. An excellent new book arrived by post ‘A History and guide to collecting ladies antique skirt lifters’ by Carole Walker. Wold’s publishing Heronsbridge, little Knowle, Burleigh Salterton Devon EX9 6QS. email books@woldspublishing web:wolds Price £18 50 plus postage. I was given a copy, but I do not have any copies for sale. I found it an excellent detailed history of those charming items to secure a ladies long skirt when she danced or performed sports. Clear pictures and old catalogues make this a joy as a reference.
