I often hear that Lincoln & Newark have nothing of interest but they are traditionally dealer's shows so the best stuff is often sold before the gates are opened.
Recently I have managed to cover my costs just by finding one good piece of pottery but I have never found a keeper at any fair

often find good bits at smaller fairs. for me the best ones are Newmarket racecourse and the Ipswich showground. always seem to buy something decent at both of those. sometimes keepers and other times i buy to sell but she ends up keeping them

Less from now on Dan, they've had to whack VAT on the rents,
so lots wont be standing in future.
These big fairs will wither and die, not enough money about to make the
eye-watering stall rents viable anymore.

You can stand for £30-40 if you know where to go,
but boots will take over, even if they have to charge VAT
it will only put it up by a couple of quid.

Greedy organisers, not seeing the wood for the trees.
The old days when you took 1000 while you were unwrapping
are history, but they don't seem to know or care.

So glad I never went , it wasn't much cop the last time either , I don't know how but these fairs need a rethink , same old faces , same old tat , year after year , how daft must you be to have the same stock for yrs on end and how daft are we for paying a small fortune to get in to see it Shock

Never been to Hemswell. But the cost of the stall was one of the reasons we dropped Newark as a fair. £200 for the stall, 4 hours drive to it and two nights in a hotel make a big hole in your wallet.

So what about a fair where 20th Century Forum members only stall out?
