Published 29th May 2020
After the success of our first Insta Decorative Home & Salvage Show on 9th May we are bringing you a second, bigger and even better virtual event with 60 excellent dealers selling fresh stock saved especially for the event! Kicking off at 9.30am on Saturday 30th May with an Instagram LIVE chat with antique dealer and Salvage Hunter's presenter Drew Pritchard and ASFairs' PR person, writer and stylist for Reclaim and Period Living, Alice Roberton, we'll then launch each exhhibitor in our Instagram grid and stories. The event will run between 10am and 4pm but will remain online @asfairs to ensure if can be viewed any time – some stock will inevitably be sold however the visitor still gets the benefit of being introduced to an excellent roster of dealers who they can later do business with.
How it works:
Just like a real fair, we will be providing a platform where visitors can browse and buy direct from a range of dealers; instead of the location being a field in the countryside the location will be Instagram. The virtual door will open at 10am, whereupon we will publish a post for each dealer including a bio, a selection of photos and an invitation for the visitor to click-through to the dealer’s profile, each dealer will also feature in our Instagram stories. Just like at a real fair, if you see a stand you like the look of you can step in, ask questions, enquire about stock and make a direct purchase. The best part is that the event will stay on our Instagram, so you can go back and visit it anytime you like (no desperately trying to remember who that dealer was who had that thing you wished you'd bought!). You can also search the #asfairsinstaevent hashtag to view dealers, stock tasters etc.
Please note: by hosting a virtual event Arthur Swallow Fairs is acting as a plaform to introduce buyer to seller and all transactions and delivery arrangements will be made between these two paries. Arthur Swallow Fairs accepts no responsibility for transactions or fulfilment.
Throughout the day we will be going LIVE on Instagram to talk to some of our regular visitors to find out what they love about our shows, what they've bought and how they are finding the current switch to online. We have some other little surprises up out sleeves too, so do check our stories as well as our main feed!
Stay home, stay safe and we hope you join us on Saturday, from all at ASFairs x
