My next fair will be The Textile Society's Antique Textile Fair on Saturday 13 October at Chelsea Town Hall, King's Road.  Please note the fair will be held on a saturday this year.

I have been sorting my library and found some duplicated or unwanted books which are now on the website.  I also have a largish number of books about  Chinese life to sell, which were my background to Chinese court costume.  I am compiling a list at present so do ask if you might be interested.
