top:5px;float:left;color:white;background:#781300;border:1px solid darkkhaki;font-size:100px;line-height:90px;padding-top:1px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>If you’re lucky enough to be in London next week, then get ready to stop, shop and drop some pounds. British pounds, that is… cold hard English cash at The Winter Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair, London’s most popular event for decorators seeking unusual antiques and statement pieces for interior design. Held in Battersea Park, close to Sloane Square and Chelsea, this fair is held 3 times a year.
The Fair has all the decorative antiques accessories from the 17th to 21st centuries you can imagine. From unusual show-stoppers to more practical pieces such as affordable period furniture, lighting, mirrors and art – more than 140 exhibitors from the UK & Europe will be at the show, including one of my favorite Scottish antique dealers Becca Gauldie. Becca specializes in Scottish Antique Spongeware Pottery, snuff and sewing requisites and probably holds the largest selection of Scottish Antique Mauchline ware in all of Scotland!
