The London Antique Textile Fair 2nd October 2011

A general view of my stand
The London Textile Society Antique Textile Fair at Chelsea Town Hall on 2nd October was a wonderful experience. The most astounding array of antique, vintage and intriguing modern textiles on display in a feast for the eyes. The textiles were sourced from all around the world, from ancient to modern of almost every ethnic variety. And stand-holders and visitors alike were so knowledgeable and interested that it was one of the most pleasurable fairs I have ever attended. 

These photos are all of my stand as sadly I had no tine to photograph other stands because I was so busy on my own.
