Top-tips for buying at antiques fairs in 2016

It would seem that everyone is offering their advice and top-tips for sourcing great antiques in 2016 – we’re wondering if it’s a good omen for a bumper year of buying


Interior stylist and journalist Ali Heath gave us her top 12 tips in a recent blog for us aimed at buying at fairs. Her voice of experience offers up some really practical, hands-on advice - especially for those venturing out to fairs for the first time.

Homes & Antiques Magazine’s newly appointed columnist Drew Pritchard, he of Quest TV's Salvage Hunters’, announced his top five tips for buying antiques. His focus is very firmly on quality and nurturing good relationships with traders - invaluable advice for all types of buyers.

Then this week we were quoted online at Emerald Street, a publication which delivers interesting style and consumer stories daily via email. They asked our PR person and blogger Alice Roberton for a few hard facts about shopping at fairs. It’s a great little piece with some good pointers and is well worth a read.

Wishing you all the best with your treasure hunting in 2016!
