Preston Arms Fair – 3rd April 2011

This latest fair was most probably the best fair since we started last in May of last year. It was only our fifth event but the quality and diversity of our dealers attracted an excellent attendance of just fewer than 300 both experienced and novice collectors.

Many of the dealers that we canvassed reported some excellent purchases and also good to excellent sales, which means that the stock moves round and visitors see a more varied array of Militaria each visit.

The younger collector was evident which bodes well for the hobby.

We are very pleased to announce that the collection for the “Help the Heroes” that was made at the fair raised over £100, we thank everyone who kindly donated very much for their generosity.

MOVING: We are very pleased that the fair will be moving, from the 7th August 2011, to the new location at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel at Clayton Le Moors ( Jct 7  M65 ) where the fair can expand at it’s natural pace…..We have an ever growing list of people who want to book tables…14 at present…after only five fairs this we feel this demonstrates the high potential of this ever more popular event.

We would like again to thank all our dealers for their total professionalism demonstrated when attending the Preston Fair, this has been commented on many times but it is the foundation of our fair.

We hope to see everyone again at the next fair on the 5th June 2011, have a safe journey to and from the venue.
