The Antics of Worth and Gates 241/366

Leave a comment

The Staycation carries on at pace as Worth and Gates woke to a beautiful day. They went just down the hill to The Three Counties Showground to a flea fair that was on for the bank holiday.

There were lots of stalls, lots of people, lots of bargains and lots of unusual things for sale. Worth and Gates met up with The Elf and her friend Charlotte at the fair. 

Worth was delighted with his finds. First he got a model of the Mallard a steam locomotive which they saw earlier in the year at a weekend in York. It will remind them of this lovely weekend.

Then they came across a stall specialising in aeroplane memorabilia. They found a compass that was taken from an aeroplane cockpit. It had a round dial set in a square case which was secured to the cockpit facia by four screws set in the corners of the compass case. This is the look that has become iconic as the case style predominant in watches made by the French watch company Bell & Ross. Worth has a Bell & Ross with this particular styling. He was over the moon with this find.

After the fair they went to the Swan nearby in Hanley Swan for a lovely lunch and then went home with Elfie and Charlotte to fuss Bertie.

A lovely day full of odd antics for Worth and Gates.
