Spring Antiques Fair: Battersea, London: Foyer Theme…
The Spring 2012 Decorative Antique Fair takes place from 24-29 April 2012, at the Battersea Evolution (the marquee) in Battersea Park. A garden theme will take centre stage in the Foyer, designed and co-ordinated by works of art dealer Robert Barley, who has planned a wonderful homage to Her Majesty The Queen, in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee.
We are expecing that the Spring fair will, like the Winter Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair, buck the trend with high visitor numbers and bouyant sales. The last few fairs, have been noticeably buzzing with a great crowd of visitors, many in the younger (30′s) age group. Exhibitors have commented how busy the Fair has been and on the overall quality of the visitors.
“We were selling quality items that are hard to find and at a fair price,” said Toby Lorford, which epitomises the majority of sales at the fairs. Customers are definitely looking for, and buying, good examples of practical yet unusual furniture and decorative items to use in their homes. Decorators and leading trade buyers attend in droves on our opening days and are always very much in evidence during the whole six days of the fairs.
