A PIECE OF HISTORY TO BE SOLD AT CARMARTHEN ANTIQUES & FLEA MARKET
The Carmarthen Antiques & Flea Market which takes place this month on Sunday July the 26th is once again attracting interest from collectors and antique enthusiasts from across Wales and beyond.

the samplers are a lovely decorative item
that show the skills of the 11 and 13 year old girls.
