Dear Diva Readers,

We use this resource list to decide where to take our clients so they can find just what they are looking for.  And while the antique warehouses, private by appointment only stores are divine, there is a time and place for a good old antiques fair!!  Attending an antiques fair is down-right convenient when you get a gathering of vendors in one place – giving you the opportunity to do one-stop shopping!


There is a prestigious antique fair this year on July 4 and 5 that promises to be a do-not-miss event. Translation— it has some of the top dealers in the area! Members are selected for their expertise, integrity, and reputation.


The University of York Antiques Fair  will be held in the University of York Exhibition Centre and it will have approximately 40 exhibitors. Items on display will include period furniture, high quality silver including Scottish provincial items, 18th, 19th and early 20th century ceramics, antique arms and armour, high quality jewelry, art nouveau, art deco and arts and crafts metalware, glass, lighting and pottery and both contemporary and antique fine art. The event will have exhibitions from a number of Yorkshire based antiques dealers trading in items with a Yorkshire bias.
