Since the very early 2000s, the Cotswolds Decorative, Antiques and Art Fair has slowly but surely evolved to become quite the buzzing shopping event in this scenic part of western England. It is well known to locals and has gained a reputation further afield too, with both visitors and sellers now attending from all over the UK and sometimes further afield. This is in part thanks to being featured on some popular English antiquing TV shows, and also due to its firm reputation for offering quality antiques and vintage items for sale.

The Cotswolds Decorative, Antiques and Art Fair offers a broad hybrid of fine arts and antiques, decorative items for the home and garden, modern and contemporary art and industrial design. The goods for sale are wide-ranging in size, style, and price. Treasures can be found for as little as a few pounds, and highly collectible pieces are occasionally valued upwards of €25,000. This makes for very exciting and interesting browsing, for everyone from the most casual shopper to the most avid collector.

The vendors that attend the Cotswolds Decorative, Antiques and Art Fair are carefully curated by the organizers of this event. Just like with their other show the Pavilions of Harrogate Antiques and Fine Art Fair, Cooper Events wants to ensure that the fair stays accessible to all, and offers plenty to suit all tastes and budgets. Some of the stalls have made quite a name for themselves over the years, and regular visitors look forward to checking out the latest offerings from stands such as Deco Dave with a fabulous selection of 20th-century lighting and ceramics, Rug Addiction with Persian and Oriental rugs, Howells’ selection of fine jewelry, Roger De Ville’s early English pottery and the fine bronze work found at the Muse Sculpture Gallery.

The Cotswolds Decorative, Antiques and Art Fair takes place over three days, so there is plenty of time to have a good look around. The keenest collectors will no doubt want to arrive first thing on Friday, though there is always more than enough to see over the entire weekend event.

"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."
Nicolas Martin
