Jan and John Maggs Antiques
NEWSLETTER - October 18, 2011
The village of Wyck Rissington
in the Cotswolds
In this month's Newsletter
We've just returned home from another wonderful visit to
England. We bought very well, and our shipment arrived safely on
Monday morning, allowing us plenty of time to get everything
ready for our November Opening on the 12th and 13th.
As you scroll down this page, you'll find more about the
Opening, and a small souvenir of our travels - a pictorial of

most of our new stock is being held for the opening, there's no
New Inventory page this month, but there are several new
MaggsList. And, of course, Pippin's Page
and the Back Page.
We hope you'll have a look.

We've never understood the success of Europe's ubiquitous
American fast food outlets. For example, a few years ago,
