Newark August Antiques Fair

Was quiet in the Portobello but Newark August Antiques Fair was very well attended and busy with UK buyers as well as from overseas. No one was sure why it was better attended than usual but all the dealers were pleased. Most of the auctions are closed in August so maybe more collectors visit fairs and perhaps less UK residents went abroad this summer. I went to the North of England over the bank holiday and was able to buy some very nice items. We tend to forget the North has some rich cities with wonderful old stately homes crammed full of collections to visit and excellent little fairs to attend. Most of the dealers I know don’t have websites and tend only to buy and sell items they have personally vetted.
