The last Antique fair i attended was in Alexandra Palace in north London, I really enjoyed this. The smell of old things STRANGELY smelt nice. Could be the sensory confusion going on in my head, when you just enter the exhibition.
The first thing that hits you is the Odd smell similar to that of old books, clothes you name it, at the same time the first sight is the beautiful items displayed on the exhibition stands, vintage jewellery, antique crystals, beautiful paintings, and vintage Fur coats. At this point the 2 senses clash, it can be quite confusing, 😀
So much to see i didn’t know where to start. By the time i left there my pocket was battered beyond belief. and yes i did leave with a vintage Teacup Trio some Vintage Fashion among other things.
