I have been a couple of times - it's a fantastic event! The dealers are mostly fairly high-end, but treasures can be found for many budgets. I got to hold and page through a sixteenth-century costume book, whose illustrations are quoted in most modern costume books!

Went today. Like a museum for book lovers. Seemed more expensive than in past years. Interesting to me is that dealers seem to be focused on bringing items that have a wow factor in person but that might not on the internet. lots of illustrated and unique items with less emphasis on things that can easily be searched, described and understood in an internet listing. It suggests the future of bookselling to me.
