Book Fairs Diary

If you like old books, you’ll love book fairs. They are a superb opportunity to spend a few hours surrounded by beautiful books, to meet fellow addicts and to add wonderful material to your collection. I sell at fairs from the South Coast to York and you can find my diary here.

Pop along, pick up a bargain and say ‘hello’ – I might even buy you a coffee. (Frankly, this would probably involve you going to buy the coffees with my money; I’m usually too busy minding the stall. Cynics might therefore see this ‘offer’ as a transparent ploy to get someone else to do the refreshment-legwork while I take it easy but this is not the case. I really will be working and we can talk about old books when you get back from the cafe.) I sell at the Etc Fairs Bloomsbury Book Fair each month, I sell at the Etc Fairs Book and Ephemera Fair each month and I also sell at PBFA Book Fairs.
