We were looking forward to this trip for many months. Rumor has it that the spring show in May is the better one to go to. Having attended the summer one in 2014 and boiled, we were full of anticipation. Well, have to say that from the lamp perspective at least, we didn't see bargains, mostly items at retail prices, and really nothing out of the ordinary except for a nice submarine, a shetland pony in a glass case and an engine cowling from a commercial jet. Seems the industrial movement is still in demand. Here are a few photos of the nicer things we came across. The expense of travel, hotels and above all, immense traffic requiring more patience than I could muster, could mean we give it a miss in future.
