Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
PETERSFIELD ANTIQUES FAIR, SEPTEMBER 2017
Established over 40 years ago in Petersfield's Festival Hall,
The quality of this fair has gradually lifted to a very high standard, whilst keeping its feet firmly on the ground. It is Unpretentious!
Prices start from about £20, rising to perhaps the very occasional special £10,000 piece. Petersfield Fair offers both exhibitors and visitors a welcoming friendly atmosphere, where like-minded dealers and collectors can enjoy doing business.
Almost all the exhibitors are regulars, so we can maintain high standards and a good balance of disciplines. Jewellery is particularly popular in Petersfield, so we usually have 5 jewellers. Competition for these slots is strong!
We are delighted to welcome back after some years the stylish Deco dealer, Jeroen Markies, as well as new to Penmans Swann Fine Art.
Petersfield Fair was established in 1973 by Eric Gamlin, and Penmans took over in 1999. The fair is now perhaps the most consistently successful provincial Antiques Fair in the South, attracting buyers and sellers from across the UK.
