A show that I'd love to visit and you might too, is the Decorative Antiques and Textiles Fair held three times a year in Battersea Park, London SW11. The Winter show runs from noon today until 6pm on Sunday 25 January (open until 8pm Tuesday – Thursday).
With strong roots in the design world the Fair provides inspiration of how old and new can work together, with 130 exhibitors showing high quality, competitively priced antiques and 20th century design. If you'd like a ticket which admits two email me.
If you can't get to the Winter one, the Spring Fair will be held 21-26 April 2009 and the Autumn Fair 29 September until 4 October 2009.
I love old things – much of our furniture is Victorian and Edwardian, most of our lampbases are vintage and we have collections of old woodworking tools, period scent bottles and beadwork. Do you favour vintage items? If so what do you collect?
