9780711233416: The Vintage and Antiques Fairs of England

The Vintage and Antiques Fairs of England introduces readers to the most significant, regularly-held markets, from the higher-end fairs to the more wide-ranging flea markets (and a few of the more interesting car boots). After providing some insight into the market experience in general (when to go, what to look for, how to bargain), it then profiles 41 specific markets (informing readers on how to get there, schedules and entrance fees, number of vendors, kind and range of goods, amenities on site, and interesting things to see, eat and do nearby).


The 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.

About the Author:

Sandy Price's passion is not only the collectibles to be found in the markets but also the whole market experience, which she tries to capture and make accessible to readers. She has written two books on the flea markets of France, published in 1999 and 2009--Exploring the Flea Markets of France (published by Three Rivers Press, a division of Random House) and The Flea Markets of France (published by the Little Bookroom). During many visits to England over the years, Sandy also became keenly interested in English collectibles and in the very impressive--and often much more substantial--markets here. The Flea Markets of France has been featured in a number of magazines and newspapers in North America, Britain and the rest of Europe. They include House and Garden, The Guardian, Living France, Maison Chic, Nylon, Intermezzo, Ralph Lauren Magazine, and National Geographic Traveler.
