ARTPIX UPDATE!

After a very successful day yesterday at Wimborne Market, I'll now be concentrating on other bits and pieces.

First up is my unit at The Customs House in West Bay, Dorset. 



As always its packed with amazing vintage goodies, which are perfect as Christmas pressies, and I'll be cramming in yet more stuff this week!
I also have more Retro Football things to put in, including my own designs on cards and frames.


I'll get cracking on finishing my new website.


I've already finished a few pages on it, including ones that show my artworks and vintage pieces I have for sale. 
I'll be adding galleries of my photographs and examples of my design work, including book covers and posters.
Check out the progress right HERE


And I've just acquired this lovely old doll's house!


Probably dating to the 1950s, I'm looking forward to restoring it and sprucing it up a bit.
This is a brilliant project for me to work on while the weather is too rotten to do markets. Look out for it at a fair in 2019!!

Keep in touch on this blog for more news ...

WIMBORNE MARKET

I'll be at the wonderful Wimborne Market tomorrow morning!!



So run along to the lovely town of Wimborne Minster in Dorset and find me there!
This will almost certainly be my last market of the year, so it will be your last chance in 2018 to grab some vintage goodies and a few bargains as well.

See you there!!

TANKS FOR THE MEMORIES!

Had a great time this weekend at the Vintage Christmas event at the Tank Museum in Bovington!!

I love to do markets in unusual settings. Have done them before in castles, historic houses and some iconic venues, but never surrounded by tanks!

Had great sales as well, and with the added bonus of being able to wander around and check out all the tanks in this fantastic museum.


Had a great spot, right in amongst the tanks.
 

Was very pleased to see a Churchill tank, as my Grandfather worked on the prototype of these during the War.











I even staged my own battles while I was there!!!


This was probably my last event of 2018. 
I might try and squeeze in another market though, but it depends on the pesky weather!
I'll now spend the rest of the year trying to finish my new website and working on a few new projects.

Watch this space!!!
