I'm a little late posting this but I think it's worth it and obviously nothing particularly antique about this little beauty... I experienced my first Welsh Costume anxiety this week. Luckily no-one's child arrived at the Cylch Meithryn attired in antique lace, heavy locally produced flannel, topped off with a moleskin hat, but you never know do you? One wouldn't want one's child to be the only poor dab wearing a polyester-cotton mix and the wrong sort of hat. The boys opted for Welsh Rugby Shirts almost to a man though there was a sprinkling of cloth caps. You'd probably need to go to Patagonia for the real thing. I'm not sure what we would be wearing in England on St George's Day but I guess it would something similarly bizarre, perhaps featuring bowler hats and cricketing whites. Or something.

My Ceredigion and Cardigan Bay
Welcome to the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am a graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, The Repeaters. Then living in Llandewi Brefi, we had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I have trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web builder and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one.
