NOW operating as Continuity Fairs, veteran organiser Donald Bayliss has been putting fairs together for at least three decades, but seldom has he been as excited as he is about his second International Antiques and Collectors Fair of Wales, which will be held in Builth Wells on October 11 and 12.
Under previous owners this was a midweek fixture but Mr Bayliss relaunched it in May as a weekend fair, setting up on Friday. The new formula clearly works since the indoor space is already fully booked for the October fair with just outside pitches remaining. Mr Bayliss is expecting around 1000 dealers to stand.
