The Vintage and Antique Fairs of England

ISBN - 13: 9780711233416

This book comprises seven chapters. An Introduction to the Markets is followed by Practical Tips for Visiting the Markets and What to Look For. The remaining five chapters canvass individual markets and fairs, organized geographically based on the following broad regions—The Southwest, The Southeast and East, Central England, The North, and London and Vicinity. In selecting the markets featured in each chapter, an emphasis is placed on markets that are regular (held at least four times a year), significant (with, apart from a couple of exceptions, over 100 vendors—some have thousands), diverse and longstanding. The book will be illustrated, with numerous photographs of the markets and the collectibles featured in them.
Both engaging and informative in style, the book seeks to give readers (whether seasoned collectors or not) a sense of ease and confidence about accessing the markets and connecting with the wares found in them. In doing so, the book also softens the lines between antique fairs and the more diverse flea markets, as well as the boundary between traditional antiques and collectibles.
