But not to me. I missed out today at Dores and Rees auction. It happens. A box of china amongst which was a lovely Meakin dinner service and a Poole Contour gravy jug. Never mind there is always next time.
There was a bit of a buzz, as there were cameras in the hall and interviews going on outside. Cash in the Attic??
To compensate my loss I recovered my dining chairs (purchased from Dores ) with some fabric from the James Gaunt sale, ends this month.  At last! I have been waiting years for the children to master the art of eating with cutlery before daring to make this change. Not bad.....
