We couldn’t have asked for a better start at
2Covet’s Chelsea Antiques Fair

One side of our double stand…...
We are delighted to report that the first London antiques fair for 18 months proved very popular, both with many wonderful customers and our fellow dealers.  Footfall was excellent, sales high and the general euphoria, at being face to face with real people once again, even higher.  The buzz in the hall was incredible.
……. and the other.

Full Circle miraculously created a glossy fair in 24 hours!

The camaraderie was tangible with everyone, from the stand builders Full Circle, the cabinet suppliers Tableau Display and the smiling security staff from Proteginus Security Ltd, going out of their way to work at a frantic pace, in a confined space, with the utmost charm and patience.  
 

‘Morris men’ supplying the muscle power.

We were also so grateful to Ken Bolan (who traded as Talisman for many years) for setting up and curating our stand in aid of the Edward Guinness Appeal for the Queen Elizabeth Foundation.  Steven Morris Shipping Plc, (above) sponsored our tote bags and supplied four tireless and uncomplaining men to do the heavy lifting – what the general public did not know was that every single thing had to be carried up 13 stone steps – no lifts and no street level entrance!
 

 

One of the trickiest pieces to bring in was the Abbey Road Piano.  Acquired by  Coach House Pianos from Studio 3 of the famous recording studio, it was situated in the Chucs bar and restaurant.  
Finally, the whole show was run with enormous energy and professionalism by Sophie Wood and promoted on social media by Zara Rowe and her team – all from 2Covet. 

At the end of each day, weary, but happy, the team adjourned to comfortable accommodation sourced by our headline sponsors Altido (previously known as London Resident’s Club).  To all of the above a huge thank you and see you in March 2022.
