The nights are getting longer, so it must mean that we are heading towards the start of the Antique Fair season again ! For me, I start at the Peterborough ‘Festival of Antiques’ market Fair, 23rd -24th September. This is a Fair which covers almost every level of the antiques and collectibles market, from outdoor stands, table top stand, and an increasing number of stand holders displaying high quality items in the type of cabinets normally associated with Fairs that are traditionally thought of as being of a higher pedigree.
Almost two weeks later sees the opening of The Decorative Fair at Battersea Park, 4th - 9th October. This Fair needs no introduction, and is a hugely popular event, with its displays of quality antique and contemporary exhibits.
November is a particularly busy month, and I will be exhibiting at the 2 Covet Fair at the Chelsea Old Town Hall, Kings Road, London. Whilst being a relatively small Fair, of around 35 exhibitors, you can be assured that the quality of the product on display, will be of a very high standard. This Fair will be held during the London Asia Week, with a room devoted to exhibitors displaying Asian antiques.
An added bonus is the fact that the Fair takes place at the same time as the Winter Antiques and Art Fair at Olympia, so it really is going to be worthwhile paying a visit to London for all you lovers of antiques.
The Antiques For Everyone, NEC, Birmingham runs from the 24th -27th November. This is always a great event, one that is always enjoyed by exhibitors and visitors alike, with a huge variety of antiques available, it is very difficult to not find something to buy !
In the meantime, I will endeavour to add more interesting items to the website, so, as always, I am sure that we can discuss the price of any item that you may find appealing - don’t be scared, I am just a pussy cat !
