Art & Antiques For Everyone

Art & Antiques For Everyone is the largest and most established art, antiques and interiors fair outside London bringing together 200 specialist dealers offering a huge variety of desirable and unusual items.

Just outside of Birmingham, easily accessible from the main highway, stands the National Exhibition Center, a huge indoor arena hosting all kinds of national and international events. Just three times a year, the NEC hosts Art & Antiques For Everyone. This show is the largest and most established vetted art, interiors and antiques fair outside of London, and is well worth marking down in the calendar to be certain to attend at least once during the year.

Art & Antiques For Everyone attracts dealers and collectors from all over the UK and from further afield too. There are more than 200 vendors displaying and selling their goods – indeed numbers are expected to be close to 300 this year. All vendors are specialized in their field and incredibly knowledgeable regarding antiques. Art & Antiques For Everyone is an incredible event to attend as a customer, whether the intent is to buy something specific for a collection or just to browse and learn a little more about antiques and fine art.

The items on sale at Art & Antiques For Everyone represent a diversity of periods and styles crossing a variety of disciplines including ceramics, glass, paintings, jewellery, British and continental furniture, 20th century design, art deco items, silver, decorative collectables and contemporary pieces. Each event also features a special exhibition, like for instance “A Spoonful of Arts and Crafts in the UK”, which is an exciting exhibition this culminating years of learning and research on decorative spoons, knives and forks.

Art & Antiques For Everyone is like an antiques festival, bringing such enthusiasm to the field of antiques and collecting that it is a real pleasure to attend. As a layman or as a bonafide collector, there is something of interest for everyone, and certainly something to be learned. It is a really fun event, and recommended to all.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
