Australian Antique and Art Dealers Association Fair 2016

One of my favourite local events for the hunt of vintage and antique clothing events is soon coming up – the Australian Antique and Art Dealers Association Fair. “Antiques and Art” might conjure up a vision limited to furniture, jewellery, and exquisite works by old masters (not to mention a price range out of reach […]

The Sydney Fair 2016 Review

The atmosphere combines a museum or gallery setting and high end show stoppers with […]
