The Social Christmas Market - Saturday 16th December 12pm-5pm

As mentioned in last week's Time Out myself and the Empress of Arcadia are delighted to be stalling out, as is tradition, at The Social Christmas Market this Saturday 16th December.  As a diversion from Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul, we shall on this occasion have for sale a limited number of bookplates we have designed in conjunction with our dear friend Martin Clark at Tilley Printing and a revival of a Spratt's Dog Biscuit Christmas Card from the year 1926 printed by the good people at Aldgate Press. Doors open at midday and the stall shall close at 5pm.  We look forward to your good company.

The first of a four part serial that I have written entitled 'The Days When We Were So Young and Did Not Know It' in collaboration with my good friend the photographer Nick Fallowfield-Cooper is published in the latest issue of Fallon's Angler.  It is a story based on and inspired by the extraordinary illustrated scrapbook of the Victorian/Edwardian lady Marjorie Taylor (nee Tillard) and commences in the year 1895.
