Consumer information

To assist the antiques buying public BADA has its own consumer information and advice service, dealing with the buying — and selling — of antiques. Much of the information can now be accessed via this web site, but in addition a letter or telephone call to BADA’s headquarters will provide a variety of information services to collectors.

These include:

  • Our free pocket sized List of Members.
  • Our Consumer Information Series pamphlets:
    • Buying & Selling Antiques
    • Valuing, Securing & Insuring Your Antiques
  • Our popular free publication The Care of Antiques & Works of Art 
  • Advice about export of antiques including the BADA Antique Certification Service.
  • Information about the major antiques fairs in Britain including the annual spring event, BADA fair, held at the Duke of York’s Square in Chelsea.
  • Assistance in finding a BADA dealer.
  • Information about the Friends of the BADA Trust, including a sample Friends newsletter listing special antiques events and free tickets available for antiques fairs — see also Friends
