LONDON -- Forget the dismal economy, itís June in the Brit capital and the 36th annual Olympia International Art & Antiques Fair, June 5-14, 2009, is an undeniably spiffed up shopping bonanza for both collectors and collectibles fanciers. No wonder, as the fair occupies an entire square acre inside an 1885 glass and iron architectural extravaganza of an exhibition hall bathed in natural light. But more importantly, Olympia fair organizer Freya Simms has vastly recast the show to enormously stylish effect.
