After Saint Petersburg Antique Fair I have very good impressions: although quantity of participants & public was many times less than usual, I discovered great interest to hand fans. It was the first time to show my collection to public & it was amazing even for me because I saw my fans all together opened for the first time, I store them closed in boxes. During the exhibition I met a lot of interesting people & I am sure it was good idea to participate in this Fair. Next year I think to go to the Moscow Fair in Gostinniy Dvor.
