Buying Glass from Dealers and Antique Fairs

The following is a list of dealers and retailers who buy and sell antique, second-hand and collectable glass. For the new collector, it is probably best to start buying glass from a dealer who is a member of LAPADA (the Association of Art and Antique Dealers) or BADA (the British Antique Dealers' Association).

A list of local auction houses can be found here. Many auction houses' sales and antiques fairs are advertised in The Antiques Trade Gazette, The Collector and the internet newspaper for the British antique trade.
