Founded in 1974, the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association, or PBFA, is a larg association of second-hand booksellers. The association organises over 70 fairs of second-hand, collectable and rare books in the UK each year.

These fairs include various ‘premier’ fairs such as the York Book Fair, London Book Fair and Oxford Book Fair.
