Officially founded in 1974, the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association or PBFA holds over 80 Fairs of secondhand, collectable and rare books throughout the UK, including a selection of ‘Premier Fairs’ such as the York Book Fair, London Book Fair and Oxford Book Fair. The PBFA has over 500 members, and we joined a few years ago. The PBFA Book Fairs represent an excellent opportunity to view (and ideally buy!) a wide range of books at a huge selection of prices, as well as rubbing shoulders with like-minded bibliophiles within and without the trade.
All Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association members are expected to adhere to a Code of Practice, to protect customers and maintain the reputation of the trade simultaneously.
