well, i for one will be going to one of the shows - probably Weybridge. Not sure i'll be bringing anything that falls under the category of miscellaneous or collectables, more likely something ceramic, or a painting. I'm not sure i've actually got much to bring, but having been to two shows last year i've caught the bug.

p.s many thanks for the book suggestions - with a bit of help from a commentator on my blog, i managed to attribute my latest studio pottery buy to Audrey Richardson. The next unknown on my list for attribution is a small vase that looks like Danish Copenhagen pottery, but it's green on white, rather than the familiar blue on white. Do you know, did/do they do such a colour scheme?

Anyone know the name of the black furniture expert who, periodically, appears on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow?

Cheers
