EB Collectors

Ee by gum - trouble at mill - er I mean pottery!

The Emma Bridgewater Collectors' Open Days last Thursday, Friday and Saturday didn't meet with whole hearted praise.  There are lots of complaints on Facebook about over pricing, pushing, poor catering, lack of organisation and the non appearance of Emma herself, among other things.

I live it vicariously by enjoying the pictures posted online and perhaps that's the best way?

Here are some images -



They just can't wait to check things out!
Shall I buy it? I wonder if she did?
Lovely jug but not sure about the lettering?
Emma was there, maybe she wasn't recognised because of the specs!  Check out the spotted Aga!

Matthew and Emma picked up honorary degrees on Friday for their work supporting the potteries - so they had a good week!

Apologies to those not interested in EB pottery but I will talk about quilting eventually and show you more houses and gardens as promised.

The pics make it look like such a fun time.....hard to believe there were complaints!

Loved the pics (as a collector I cannot get enough of E.B.) Just found 4 unusual mugs - will post pics later.

I enjoy seeing all the pottery. I bought a little pitcher/creamer recently because it reminded me of the things I have seen on your blog. It has red stripes and blue stars on white. I can only dream of getting the real thing.

For Robin and anyone who lives outside the UK, EB sells online and will ship worldwide and of course you can buy on eBay!
