How will the Decorative Antiques Fair do in the current economic storm?

the Decorative Antiques Fair, Battersea Park London

The current financial outlook is bleak, as various pillars of world finance seem to be collapsing daily and taking with them many of the high-earning younger generation who have previously spent big money at the Decorative Antiques and Textile Fair.

Everyone is questioning how the autumn event, the last of the year, will stand up when it returns to Battersea Park, London SW11, from September 30 to October 5.

All exhibitors are hoping that its appeal to decorators, private clients, the American trade and a clutch of celebs will help to retain its popularity. Whether it overrides the current economic woes will be interesting to see.

If the fairs world is about to take a hammering much of the rest of the economy is experiencing, then the decorative fair stands a better chance of success than most of weathering the storm. Certainly the exhibitors seem to think so, or at least the 12 new exhibitors. Other exhibitors include Retrouvius and Guy Trench of Antiques by Design.
