Gail McLeod - Publisher & Editor Antiques News & Fairs
Antiques News & Fairs works to establish worldwide contacts between private and trade buyers and sellers by acting as a portal site for respected antique dealers and event organisers and by publishing up-to-date news and feature content and carries the top ranked antiques fairs calendar in the United Kingdom.
Antiques News & Fairs originated in 1997, when the newspaper, Antiques & Art Independent was published for the first time and went on to publish over half a million copies. It was published on the internet a few months later when in 1998, Antiques & Art Independent linked up with an American antiques newspaper The New England Antiques Journal, and established an internet edition to promote the British antiques trade on both sides of the Atlantic.
In 2001 Antiques & Art Independent converted to internet only publication with the domain name www.antiquesnews.co.uk
Following ten successful years Antiques News was acquired by Gail McLeod and was re-launched in October 2008 under the name of Antiques News & Fairs reflecting the popularity of the Fairs Calendar on the site.
