Jervaulx Abbey

Roxy playing Hide & Seek on a visit to the lovely & enchanting Jervaulx Abbey in Yorkshire - we visited at 4pm on a Saturday and just about had the place to ourselves.... or maybe Roxy scared everyone off....

Autumn & Roxy in all their glory

All around the leaves are brown, & here is Roxy posing!

Mark was in his element when he visited Silverstone a couple of weeks ago (again) where there was some motorbike thingy going on - here he is re-living his teenage years, check out that smile on his face (captured by our son)!!

We had a stand at Stapleford Park last weekend for the first Luxury Antiques Weekend. It was a great looking fair. And the venue was amazing. Here are pics of our stand and the venue.

Mark managed to blag free tickets to the Le Mans Series at Silverstone last weekend (not sure if that's's boys's stuff). Here he is posing, pictured by our son.

Cheltenham birthday weekend pics

The future's so bright....

Oh no! Sara hits 40

I turned 40 last month. If anyone else tells me that 'life begins at 40' I will hit them with a very large stick. Anyway, to celebrate (if that's the right word) me & Mark visited Cheltenham for a very lovely weekend. We did lots of alcohol-sipping, people-watching and posing - see above pics.....!

New addition to the crew

To cope with the huge amount of work involved in maintaining our new website, we have appointed a new Creative Assistant, Roxy. However, the sheer amount of work required has proved too much for her already, and she was yesterday caught sleeping on the job.

Welcome to the Hampton Antiques Blog!

Mark is working hard (no change there, then) travelling the country sourcing new stock which he tells us gets harder and harder. We're updating the website several times a week with new stuff too, so please take a sneaky peaky. Grab yourself a nice cup of tea and have a browse.

Looking forward to the weekend already, but it's not looking too good right now here in Northamptonshire, in fact it's pouring down as we speak. As a self-confessed weather geek, Sara's current fave website is and their patented RealFeel forecast..... sheer genius! She's particularly fond of Jim Andrews..... Hey Met Office - get your act together.
