    Background: ANTIQUE COLLECTING, AN EVER POPULAR HOBBY, HAS RESULTED IN A NEW STYLE OF SELLING. INSTEAD OF INDIVIDUAL SHOPS, DEALERS GATHER TOGETHER UNDER ONE ROOF IN A PERMANENT ANTIQUE FAIR.

    ANTIQUE FAIRS, LIKE THIS ONE IN KENSINGTON, LONDON, HAVE MUSHROOMED ALL OVER BRITAIN. THEY ARE POPULAR WITH SHOPPERS WHO GET THE CHANCE TO BROWSE THROUGH A WIDE VARIETY OF GOODS FROM 18TH CENTURY ENGLISH PORCELAIN, TO GLASS, FURNITURE, BOOKS, PAINTINGS AND JEWELLERY, ALL UNDER THE SAME ROOF.

    STALLS TEND TO SPECIALISE IN ONE OR TWO PARTICULAR PERIODS OR STYLES. THIS NEW STYLE OF SELLING HAS ATTRACTED A WHOLE NEW GENERATION OF CUSTOMERS, WHO PERHAPS, FIND THE FRIENDLY INFORMAL ATMOSPHERE LESS AWESOME THAN THE MORE RATIFIED ATMOSPHERE OF THE INDIVIDUAL ANTIQUE SHOPS.
