What to Look for in Spring?

... Ladybird Books! (surprisingly)

Not long now until car-boot sale season ...

Anyway, On the subject of questions and answers, I'm planning on setting up a new page on my website - Ladybird FAQs.

Question number one will be "Where can I get hold of the Peter and Jane Reading series?"

I get asked this question about once a week.

Any suggestions for other questions just let me know here or via my website: www.

Wingfield and Flog it!

A lady brought in a piece of Harry Wingfield artwork on a recent edition of Floggit! The picture was from 'Going to School' and featured Ethel, Wingfield's wife. The piece was valued at between £600 and £800 - much nearer the mark, I think, than the valuation on Antiques Roadshow, a few weeks earler. You should be able to see the episode here for a little longer. The Wingfield bit is quite near the start.

The owner had no intention of selling her artwork. Very proper too.
