Antique Shows Canada Online Book Fair
The next virtual Rare Books & Antiques Show will begin at 5 pm on April 30th and run though May 2nd. This will, I believe, be the fourth in a series of virtual events that began late in 2020. At the moment there are 21 exhibitors registered, with more expected to sign up in the days to come. Gadsden Promotions, organizers of Antique Shows Canada events. is a Prince Edward Island (Canada) based company that until recently has sponsored only live events in eastern Canada.
According to Jeff Gadsden, "the recent AntiqueshowsCanada virtual book and antique fair was the busiest one yet. There was a substantial increase in sales (with) a number of excellent booksellers doing the show for the first time. The success of that show has attracted new dealers to the upcoming show on April 30 - May 2. New dealers include David Mason Books (ABAC/ILAB) from Toronto, Norman Stringer Books and Ephemera, Trillium Books, and others. This will be the largest offering of books and ephemera to date."
Visitors to their website will be able to get a good preview of the breadth and quality of the books, antiques and art that will be on offer and also be able to familiarize themselves with the procedures and safeguards that are in place.
