Some of our members were unable to attend because of illness and we wish them all the best. This theme presented quite a challenge but we rose to the occasion and saw many beautiful and valuable items and some very pretty but probably inexpensive costume items. Some of the items had belonged to their owner since their teens which possibly made them if not antiques then collectables. Some had been passed down in families and were treasured for that reason. It proved to be a very successful day.
The suggested theme for September is teapots, tea cosies, tea cups or similar items. A teabag will not pass the pub test. The September meeting will be on 25th September.
