Antiques Hunt with Lunch - January 2020
What a great start to 2020!
After a very pleasant journey through Sussex and Kent, we nestled in at The Red Lion pub in Hythe, which was our base for the day.
After morning refreshments, we met Michael Hogben, the celebrity Antiques Dealer. He gave each of us £10 to spend and gave advice on things to buy, things to avoid and how to haggle.
We all went on a shopping spree in the nearby Antiques and Charity Shops and returned to the pub with a variety of purchases.
After a very welcome pub lunch, Michael rejoined us to review and comment on our purchases. He was extremely entertaining and very knowledgeable about his trade.
Janet Snow was the lucky winner and was awarded a trophy by Michael for her treasure, which was a beautiful sparkly buckle/brooch.- Sue Russell
