Well this is to be IACF’s first foray into the world of blogging.
It would therefore seem appropriate to introduce IACF and all that we do. IACF stands for International Antiques & Collectors Fairs, we run, as our title suggests, antiques and collectors fair at 5 venues around the Unitied Kingdom. Don’t let the number 5 fool you into thinking that what we do is small time. At these 5 venues we run 28 fairs a year.
Newark International Antiques & Collectors Fair is the largest in Europe with over 4000 stalls, 5 buildings, shopping arcades and outside pitches. Held at Newark & Nottinghamshire Showground, NG24 2NY, six times a year Newark IACF is internationally reknowned antiques and collectors fair. Buyers come from around the world with regular groups coming from America, France, China, Japan, South Korea to name but a few places.
So that’s Newark, of course there’s lots more to say but this is a taster of whats to come!
