All the fun of the Fair

This entry was posted on 5th May 2011

If you’re a home owner on a budget, which lets be honest, most of us are during the current economic climate, can be a bit of a drag when you want to re vamp the house. Unbeknown to a lot of people, for over a decade, Arthur Swallows has been putting on Antique and Home fairs in a bid to bring affordable antiques and second hand goods to the masses, and the fairs have transformed the way we shop for our homes. Over the period of a year, 6 Antique and Home shows are held across the country which thousands of specialised dealers from all over the world touting their wares from antique linens and furniture, brick-a-brack, fine jewellery and second hand goods. It’s literally a gold mine for those wanting to spruce up the home, and you could easily do up the house on a budget and get the things you really want. Arthur Swallows attracts buyers from all over the world, and is really a fantastic day out, sometimes even two days, as there is so much so see! I was lucky enough to be taken around the fair on a golf buggy and that took over an hour so you can imagine how big these events are! The fair really promotes restoration in offering salvage and recycled products. It allows people who don’t have the money to go out and buy a fully restored Victorian fireplace to find their own and restore it saving money, and creating a nice little project. Arthur Swallows has been featured in many magazines including BBC Homes and Antiques MagazinePeriod Living Magazine and on TV shows such as channel 4's “Kirstie’s Home Made Homes”. The next fair is the Lincolnshire Antiques and Home Show, on the 6th and 7th of June at the Lincolnshire Showground, take it from me, this is definitely worth a visit, especially if you’re looking for a special something whether it’s antique or a funky retro piece from the 70’s.
