Today is 'Take a Child to Work day' which is exactly what Anna Joy did. Anna brought her beautiful daughter, Sophie. to Hungerford Arcade to learn about antiques and to get a feel for what it is like being an antique trader! Sophie attends St John's School, Marlborough and will be 14 years old on the 27th January.
Sophie thoroughly enjoyed her time at the Arcade, helping her mother, Anna clean and re-arrange the stock in her unit (Unit 35C) and filling the spaces with the other items they had brought with them. Anna mainly sells silver, glass and ceramics.
Sophie saw how other units were set-up and all the different things that each dealer had for sale. She also met lots of nice people which made her smile a lot! Sophie knew quite a lot about the items her mother sells and is genuinely interested in antiques.
I hope you will like the photos of Anna and Sophie enjoying a very special day together at Hungerford Arcade!
