A small stand supporting TATHS - The Tools and Trades History Society, with membership application forms, and small selection of their books etc

For your delight and delectation Sue and Valerie will be serving slices of theirdelicious home-made cakes, all washed down with a freshly made cuppa - Tea or Coffeee

Don't miss this great opportunity to meet up with like-minded tool enthusiasts

If you need any more details or information please message me, especially if you are wanting to buy a particular tool.
I will circulate any 'needs' to all the dealers, since their stalls will only have so much stock for the day - it means they will have the chance to dig out that 'elusive' tool that you're looking for

Look forward to meeting up with old friends and customers, and making many new ones!
