SHOPPERS INVEST IN ITEMS OF VALUE AND TRADITION AT THE ANTIQUES FAIR AT NELSON MANDELA SQUARE - SUNDAY 3 MARCH 2013
The Antiques & Collectables Fair, Gauteng's most prestigious event, which boasts over sixty dealers who come from all over the country to exhibit will take place on Sunday 3 March from 09h00 to 16h00 on the Upper and Lower Levels at Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton, As the largest and most successful antiques fair in the country, it has become a famous attraction, not only with local collectors but with the many thousands of tourists who pass through Johannesburg and who marvel at stumbling on such a unique antiques fair.
Despite a tightening in the economy, the Antiques Fair started 2013 on a high note with thousands of people visiting the first Fair of the year in February. According to Clyde Terry, organiser of the Antiques Fair, "We were surprised at the buoyancy of the antiques market, despite the slowdown. It seems that people, in tough times, become more discerning as to how they spend their hard-earned cash and are opting to invest in items that will retain their value in the long term. We are also finding that, with hard times comes nostalgia and a return to appreciating beautiful things and upholding old traditions. Given the tumultuous stock markets, savvy investors are snapping up valuable antiques, art, stamps, coins and collectables as a hedge against inflation - these investments will not only appreciate over time but will give infinite pleasure."
The sixty dealers who make up the antiques community are an eclectic bunch of people who have a passion for their trade and who are committed to giving the very best in products and services. They are passionate about their collections and many are specialists in their fields. Whether you're looking for a rare piece of silver, an unusual corkscrew, a map or rare book, or want to start a collection of porcelain, the dealers will give you all the advice, support and encouragement you need to become a devotee of antiques and collecting.
Johannesburg's best kept secret is the Antiques & Collectables Fair at Nelson Mandela Square - with its relaxed atmosphere under the portico's of Nelson Mandela Square - shopping to the strains of a classical quartet - it's the best place to be on the 1st Sunday of every month.
