Yesterday we went on our annual post-Christmas trip to Burleigh and its great factory shop. There was also a rather good sale on. I know these pictures are probably very similar to last year's, but pottery is pottery!
This year they had a tree up near the lovely open fire and tea and coffee are still free if you make your own in the little kitchen. As they are now owned by Denby I had wondered if things would have changed, but not so far.
I love seeing all the patterns piled in together on the lovely display dressers, of course it makes you want to buy. I do have lots of their stuff all ready, in different colours, but went to get a tureen to match one I already had. They didn't have one but did have a larger version in the same pattern (like the one in the first picture in last year's post). As it was in the sale it was a bargain.
The next pictures are for Colleen. She will understand... they are to do with the advent calendar on her blog. Day 21 to be precise!
If the spacings are all to pot on the post today I'm not going to bother. I've had to re-load the pictures countless times, everything disappears or re-orders itself. This happens periodically, obviously the planets are in the wrong alignment or some such.
