The DAAF online antiques fair functions in much the same way as a physical antiques fair, except for the limited number of objects per exhibitor and that the items cannot be handled. Our platform attempts to recreate the many of the same experiences that visitors would expect of a physical fair. For example, items can be searched via various means, such as keywords and categories. Equally, exhibitors can be visited by ‘stand’, much like physical fairs, and are listed alphabetically and by stand number.
Each item featured on our website during the online fair is from a reputable dealer affiliated to the KVHOK and CINOA associations, meaning the antiques purchased are valued at a high standard and sold by leading experts in their field. Items listed on The DAAF will be displayed in several images alongside details such as a description, bibliography, condition and price. Exhibitors’ profiles or stands have detailed contact information for the seller, giving customers the ability to contact each dealer easily to enquire about a specific item.
The site features the option to ‘bookmark’ various items, that viewers may want to look at again. When selected, it will pop up in a row alongside your other selected items, at the bottom of your screen.
