This space is currently undergoing refurbishment - we apologise for any disruption to services
The exhibits are temporarily on loan whilst the
museum area is being redecorated to reflect modurhn tastes....
Humidity control is being installed
This exhibit below used to be used by the owners as a nature table for children
Owners tries to maintain a modicum of nature in this area - mainly dead flies.
In keeping with 'authenticity' - bird seed is kept in the bird seeds tins and string is kept in the string tin....of course. I recently donated my 'spare' string tin - just like this one but a bit faded - to local charity shop - I note that it is priced at £5 (!!!).....just in case you wish to pop along.
The 'Tin Section' is being prepared for its first viewing - scheduled opening Spring 2014
PS: Queuing the night before optional
PPS: Bedding will NOT - I repeat - will NOT be supplied (no matter how much you plead to use that nice crochet blanket you saw on my blog and tell me how lovely I am....even though I lap those compliments up!). Ditto hot drinks and beverages in general - please bring your own and I will be enforcing the tight: 'It's a vintage Thermos' rule here. The strict 'It's Vintaajh Darhling' definition is in use this season so no trying to sneak in a 1999 Asda/Walmart/Coles/Pak'nSave (aim to please) special please - there will be the usual vetting of the vacuum flasks at the door. Refusal to serve often offends.....
PPPS: Toilet facilities available on request. Deposit required!!!!!!!!!!! (Ho ho!)
PPPPS: Toilet paper will NOT be supplied: no matter how desperado. Particular emphasis on this as last year a veritable forest was hewn to maintain the toilette habits of some punters (what is going on bloggers - or should I say loggers....?!). Toilet plunger is available for a small deposit (extra comedic effect!).
PPPPPS: Hand washing facilities are available but please provide your own towel. I remember the vintage ones from last year being snaffled by YOU KNOW WHO. Funny how a very similar looking towel popped up on Ebay the following week...(she it not aware that full tracking system is in place on ALL 'Vintaajh Darhling' items....)
PPPPPPS: Please do not try and undertake a full body wash in the hand basin. IT CANNOT COPE WITH YOUR BODY MASS. The amount of filler that Dom had to use repairing last year's debacle is testament to THAT particular showdown.
PPPPPPPS: Please remove all hair from the plug. Come on people - I am NOT running a B&B here!
PPPPPPPPS:It's a dog eat dog world out there!
PPPPPPPPPS: I notice that Crusty has 'shared' my idea that I gave out gratis on my blog only a few weeks ago (on my garden tutorial post) - mmmmm....those programme makers were VERY quick off the mark.....I am not in the slightest bit bitter...I do not have a bitter bone in my body...AHEM!
PPPPPPPPPPS: Lovely to have all new babies in the world - makes me all teary....
