Hello and welcome back to the Miller’s blog!

It’s been a busy summer with the Antiques Roadshow but now the sun is waning and it seems the wet weather is well and truly back making for a rather damp start to autumn. Luckily, there are plenty of events coming up to distract us from these cooler climes. I hope we may meet on one (or many) of these dates!
 
The Antiques Roadshow continues in only a few days on 10th September at Lyme Park in Stockport and in Harrogate on 28th October – have a good rummage in your cupboards, attics and basements and come along! You never know what you may discover.
 
I’ll be joining my good friend, Mark Hill, for a Show & Tell event at Henry Wood Hall on 15th September which is free. Turn up with family heirlooms, household treasures and car boot bargains for inspection, free advice and valuation. More details here .
 
I’m looking forward to delivering talks at the Dublin Antiques Show (24th – 26th September) and, of course, attending the NEC Antiques for Everyone – do visit the Miller’s stand from 18th – 22nd November at the NEC Birmingham.
 
Finally, I hope you may join me at the Chorleywood Festival on 13th November for a talk and valuation evening. Details to follow.
 
This autumn, I’ll be updating the blog with further details of upcoming events, round-ups of fairs and talks and much more. Be sure to check back in a couple of weeks to hear all about the next Antiques Roadshow!
 
Don’t forget you can catch up with all things Miller’s antiques on Twitter at @millersantiques and you can pre-order your copy of Miller’s Antiques Handbook & Price Guide 2016 – 2017 online here

It's come around to the season of filming the Antiques Roadshow again, and luckily the weather is on our side!

Last week I visited RAF Coningsby at Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire, and currently am on my way to Plas Newydd on Anglesey for tomorrow's filming.

ggLater dates I am giving valuations at include:

Broughton Castle near Banbury, Oxfordshire on 21st June
Bolsover Castle, near Chesterfield, Derbyshire on 9th July
Balmoral, Ballater, Aberdeenshire on 30th July

If you have something interesting lying around, do come along!

I will also be at the NEC 'Antiques for Everyone' Summer fair again from 23rd to 26th July, so it's going to be a busy summer.

Early 2015 update!

We've been working hard on the upcoming Miller's Antiques Handbook & Price Guide 2016-17 and it's coming together! With this, we've teamed up again with Mark Hill to start working on the Collectables Price Guide.

 We will also be at the Antiques for Everyone Spring Fair which takes place 9-12 April 2015. Read more and keep updated with the event here.

If you haven't managed to take a read, you can find my latest Telegraph Luxury article here.  Recently, Woolley & Wallis' Nick Rocke sale showcased a fantastic array of Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts pieces, and overall, it was the ceramics took my fancy.

Join me next week at the NEC in Birmingham for the Antiques for Everyone Winter fair 2014.

 

Find us at the Miller’s stand, G46, for advice, book signing or just a chat.

 

I will be judging the best stand awards for both Section 1 and 2. These will be awarded to the stands with the best design and layout. Judging will take place on Vetting Day and the winners will be announced before the fair opens on Thursday 4 December.

 

Fellows Auctioneers will once again be sponsoring a Section 1 stand prize, the winner of which will receive £500. Birmingham Living magazine will award £250 to Section 2’s winner.

 

Good luck and best wishes!
