Avignon Antiques Fairs Trade Exclusive
Dear Diva Readers,
xtra, extra read all about it… If you’re an Antiques Dealer wanting to start buying antiques abroad in France this secret, To The Trade Only Antiques Fairs in Provence happens to be one of the best addresses to do so! On the arm of your Diva Guide, a native-speaking French antiques courier, you’ll gain access to a slew of bottom dollar, er make that euro, priced French antiques, vintage, and more whilst rubbing shoulders with some of the top dealers around the world. I must confess I like the fair for the people watching as much as I do for the shopping as it’s a veritable who’s who of antiquing.
Shopping these trade fairs is NOT for the faint of heart. You need to queue before the fair opens and the doors open for the event at 8am on the nose! Elbows fly as dealers push and shove to get first dibs on buying antiques in Provence. It’s a mad house and one that I personally don’t brave without French reinforcements – but it is some of the most exciting antiquing in France! Don’t worry about getting the goods home, we’ll liaise you with international shippers ready to pack and carry!
But I’m sooo sorry – if you’re a mere shopping mortal and not an antiques dealer or interior designer this fair is not the fair for you!! It’s reserved only for professional traders on presentation of your pre-approved trade card.
We’ve got the dates on tap for 2013 so you can start planning your travels this year! Join us in Avignon for these Special Trade Fairs:
