The Sydney Fair 2017

Writing about The Sydney Fair always presents a dilemma – with so many pieces showcased from Art Deco sculpture to 1920s beaded dresses, it’s hard to do justice to every facet of what’s on display. I could write reams on the vintage fashion alone, or on just how many wonderful celluloid dance purses I saw […]

Australian Antique and Art Dealers Association Fair 2016
