This is a definitive guide to the best places to go in the United Kingdom and Eire to track down that one special item. The main section lists dealers, antiques centres and auction houses, and is divided regionally, then within each region by county, and then by town and name of each dealer or auction house. Each entry gives a brief description of type of stock, any extra services offered, plus, if relevant, the major fairs attended. Entries for auction houses list the type of sale and frequency and information on viewing and catalogues. Contact details, including email and web addresses, are included, where applicable, throughout. The directory of Associated Services offers vital details on insurance valuers, repairers, restorers, packers, and shippers. A calendar of over 1000 fairs allows the collector to plan trips around particular events. An Index of Specialists shows at a glance where to go for specific subject categories, in addition to an Index of Place Names and a general index. All of this enables easy access of information to make antique hunting as fun and profitable as possible.
