“All our current stock is featured on Instagram and Facebook and this is where we secure our sales and have a large following,” she said.
“We also run live weekly ‘Insta sales’ covering all our dealers which have been really popular. We’ve been selling a broad selection from coffee tables to mirrors and are mailing out items that can be posted.”
A stalwart of Cooper Fairs and Two Cs Fairs, antiques and interiors dealer Paul Burnett has a sole bricks and mortar outlet – the Malthouse Collective.
“We’re loving it there,” he said, “They’re constantly innovating and increasingly attracting the trade.”
The dealer has this delicate 2000-year-old Chinese Han Dynasty grey earthenware horse’s head sculpture (pictured top) priced at £320 which still has traces of earth from when it was excavated, “probably in the mid-20th century,” said Burnett.
