SAADA – The South African Antique, Art & Design Association
The South African Antique, Art & Design Association is steeped in history and tradition. Founded in 1963, it is the oldest association of its kind in South Africa. Keeping up with the ever-changing times, SAADA has evolved into the modern association it is today by including Modern and Contemporary Art, Design, and Jewellery into its portfolio. For us it is all about quality and authenticity.
The SAADA Membership, comprising of about 40 members, is a unique community of like-minded authorities in their respective fields: ranging from 20th Century Design to Cape Furniture, Fine Art to Jewellery, Silver to Contemporary Design, Art Nouveau to Coins, and so much more. Our members distinguish themselves through their knowledge, experience, code of conduct, and passion for their fields of specialty.
To be a member of SAADA has various advantages, including access to exhibiting at our fairs; Second Hand Goods Act accreditation and exemptions; inclusion in our website, social media platforms, and published membership booklet.
For The SAADA Experience and to meet us in person, visit our boutique-style fairs held annually in Johannesburg and Cape Town. These fairs have become a highlight for avid collectors, as they showcase a curated selection of the best quality items available.
Our members are always eager to share their treasures with you via their shops, websites, and social media platforms – so feel free to contact them via their details published under the Members section.
