Thanksgiving 2017

In September 1620, a small ship called the Mayflower left Plymouth, England, carrying 102 passengers—an assortment of religious separatists seeking a new home where they could freely practice their faith and other individuals lured by the promise of prosperity and land ownership in the New World.

Mayflower Antiques wish great happiness to all the Pilgrims
and their children who were so brave in seeking a new life.

We are proud to specialise in this exciting period of history and
we will always remember their courage.

We will be bringing new and exciting pieces to our website over the next few months and are looking forward to 2018, which is shaping up to be a very exciting year for Mayflower Antiques!

With Thanks

July 2017

We had a very good CADA fair at Blenheim Palace in the Spring. Besides
a magnificent venue the atmosphere and the intimacy of the fair was really
exciting.

Later on in the Spring we had a few days in Paris, on two occasions searching
for early glass. On one visit we were delighted to bring back a very early glass
Ewer and on the other an early mirror and casket, all depicted in the below
images, we are returning to Paris at the end of the month to collect two more
very beautiful pieces.

We are now members of Online Galleries, this will enable us to reach a wider
international audience, pieces from our website will continually be updated by
Social Me.

In the Autumn we are exhibiting with LAPADA at Berkeley Square. We are
excited to be there this year after a break of two years. You can find us on
stand C23.

We are building up our connections with Europe and are hoping to exhibit at
a fair there next year. There is plenty on our agenda for the forthcoming months.

We wish you all a very happy summer.

Update: Summer, 2016

Summer

We have carried out an excellent ‘photo shoot’ for our new pieces and at the same time updating some of our old ‘photo shoots’ on current pieces. The standard is higher, our aim is to have all our pieces taken by ‘Fellows Photographic Services’. The new images will be on our website very shortly.

We have several new projects underway and hopefully over the next few weeks we will be able to share these with you.

We plan to visit Paris later on in the year and are still following up on the sale of our very unique piece of early Venetian glass, at present we are concentrating in the USA.

Social Me still continue to give us a Social Media presence, it is very pleasing to know we have a very strong following through various outlets. At the same time networking continues.

We have deferred exhibiting at fairs until early 2017, but we shall certainly keep you informed when we do.

Update: March, 2016

Spring

We had a first class visit to Masstricht, met dealers that we knew and the same time met some new dealers that we did not know.

We took some great stand shots for for inspiration of how we would like to design our stands for upcoming fairs. We love that at Tefafa Exhibitors change their stand ideas each year giving a fresh and exciting appearance.

We purchased two early pieces that will soon be on our website, both are very rare, naturally we are excited with the expansion of out stock.

Four of our pieces were shown on ITV Masterpiece in February and March which was great Fun. These can be seen on our Social Media.

Networking continues running alongside the work of Social Me which is so vital for us.

We look Forward to a busy and exciting summer.

Update: January, 2016

2016 is already building up to be a busy year.

In February we are attending the LAPADA conference at the House of Commons. This year the theme is how we as Antique dealers can be more prominent and utilise our own websites and the Social Media to obtain sales. This method is increasing daily and will be such a force for us, LAPADA have gained some first class ‘speakers’ for the conference.

Once again we shall be visiting Maastricht in March to meet fellow dealers and to gain more ideas for when we exhibit later on in the year.

We shall also be visiting Paris and following up on sales for our very unique piece of early Venetian glass, which we are hoping to home in one of the large museums either in Europe or the USA.

Later on in the year we will be exhibiting in London.

Social Me continue to promote Mayflower Antiques and are giving us new ideas all the time to break into a new exciting frontier.
