      Is there an association for UK book resellers?

      I love books! That is why I want to get into buying and reselling them, but I dont know where to get started. Is there any type of reselling association in the UK that I could become a part of?

      Yes, there is a resellers association in the UK. It’s called The Bookseller’s Association. Many booksellers are members including wholesalers, book retailers, library suppliers, and independent booksellers. You receive access to:

      ● A forum for questions and advice.
      ● Special events and informative newsletters.
      ● The London Book Fair.
      ● Developments in technology.
      ● Information on consumer, trade and retail matters.

      The Bookseller’s Association website is professional and easy to navigate: Booksellers Association of England & Ireland - Home. If you are interested in membership, e-mail your request to them and they’ll take care of it.

      The Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association is geared toward local booksellers in the UK. The website Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association provides:

      ● A listing of small, local monthly book fairs in the UK.
      ● Helpful links to related organizations, national libraries and buying books.
      ● Advice about bookselling from experienced members.
      ● How to apply and join: e-mail *Visible to qualifying WF members only*.

      Two other reputable book associations are The Fine Press Book Association (Fine Press Book Association) and The Ephemera Society (The Ephemera Society - for the preservation, study and educational uses of printed ephemera).

      ● The Fine Press Book Association has more of a focus on the international side of printmaking, although it sponsors the well known Oxford Book Fair.
      ● The Ephemera Society focuses on preserving books, but sponsors fairs and bazaars in London, round the year. To access a full listing, go to The Ephemera Society - Events and Exhibitions.

      I am a specialist in selling antique books. Is there an association especially for sellers such as me or does it even matter?

      If you are an antique bookseller, a good association to join would be the Antiquarian Booksellers Association (Rare Books - ABA The Antiquarian Booksellers Association).

      ● It holds a few book fairs each year, including ones in Edinburgh and Chelsea.
      ● Access to antique book catalogues for help in pricing items.
      ● Search and contact past and present members.
      ● A list of helpful links about antique books, bookbinding, cataloguing, conservation and education.

      You should contact *Visible to qualifying WF members only* if you are interested in joining this over one-hundred-year-old booksellers association.
