Welcome to the Elephant

Where to begin.  I am a 46 almost 47 year old antiques and collectors dealer who has been trading almost all of my life.  I stood my first antiques fair at the tender age of 16 with my own stock and even paid my own stall rent.  My parents have been dealing for over 40 years so you might say I grew up with the trade.  I have had my own shop great experience but never again.  I do markets car boots antique fairs and vintage fairs.  When you do house clearances you  have different levels of stock.  I work most weekends and do a regular Wednesday market at Penkridge.    To top all this I organise my own Vintage collectors fairs.  A new venture for me which is coming along nicely.  We have 2 venues at the moment one in Cannock the other  in Norton canes. 

The aim of this blog is to share my insights into the real antiques trade what its realy like to stand at an antique fair from the dealers point of view.  The stuff you don't see and the stuff you do. 

The picture above is a typical set up for us at Penkridge market . 
A great local market well worth a visit
