The Decorative Antiques and Textiles Fair has over 130 exhibitors, and takes place three times a year in January, April and October at the marquee, Battersea Park. The recent Spring event seemed to be full of browsers and hopefully buyers. Guy Trench said the "First day was extremely popular, and by the third day alot of the fine examples of stone garden statuary had been snapped up". Perhaps this indicates that the Spring fair is the time to sell garden statuary and furniture?

For inside the home, Retrouvius showed their impressive salvaged Patent Office shelving, which looked extremely attractive on their stand and in the entrance hall to the fair.
