Co-organiser Chris Brown said this will include at least 20 dealers in Art Deco and Mid-century Modern and will be the largest fair in its portfolio of events including seven other venues in southern England.

“I must be mad launching a new fair,” he said, but the event, planned to run three or four times a year, may well be a shrewd move as Take Five Fairs ran successful 20th century and Deco fairs at the Woking Leisure Centre for at least 10 years until 2017.

Well-known Deco dealers who are exhibiting at Grandma’s Attic’s fair include lighting specialist Dave Hornik Unger (Deco Dave), Jane Burgett with Danske silver, and Wendy and Tony Clarke of Artdecoart. The brilliant colours of Whitefriar glass will be ready to catch the eye on the stand of Dave Woodger Antiques.
