Leading fair organiser Arthur Swallow Antique & Homes Shows is offering a helping hand to the antique and vintage community during the Coronavirus lockdown.

With all of its vintage and antique events planned for April now cancelled, the organiser is aiming to support its regular dealers and traders in a range of other ways via its online presence and social media channels.

Alice Roberton of AS Fairs, said, “As a small family-run business which supports independent businesses and traders, we fully understand the impact the next few weeks and months will have on us all and our thoughts are very much with the trade. We will be using our online powers to help you remain visible, keep networking functioning and help get word out that you are still trading.”

The event organiser will be taking to its accounts on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to provide regular shout-outs and posts about its dealers, alongside blogs on its website. The activity is designed to help get the message out to customers and fair-goers that dealers and traders are still active and trading wherever possible. Alice said, “We understand that many don’t operate online, so we are also looking into how we can support them.”
