HELLO FROM THE AAADA
We are excited to announce that we have secured new dates for the fair in 2021, 27-30 May. While this is a long wait to see our exhibitors, in the meantime we hope to bring you a number of online alternatives to keep your antique interests alive.
Firstly we are turning to digital publishing to bring you a Virtual Fair Catalogue made up of pieces our exhibitors had planned to bring along in 2020. All items will be available for sale. So, if you wish to receive this publication please make sure you subscribe to our mailing list here.
