All the arts on display are for sale with an assurance of originality and authenticity as the works are vetted by a committee of museum experts. Visitors can find the original works by Varley, Cox and De Wint; Burne- Jones and Helen Allingham; Augustus John, Ben Nicholson and John Piper; Mary Fedden, Richard Long and Quentin Blake at great prices.

Regularly featured within the fair are special sections with interesting themes like a loan exhibition of drawings which was a part in the 2006 fair. It presented a collection of drawings by former students of the Slade School of Art which included works by Augustus John, Gwen John, Stanley Spencer, Henry Tonks, William Orpen, and Percy Wyndham Lewis. Also significantly popular in the January 2008 fair sub-section, Modern Works on Paper, was the 'Cockaigne Culture' which is a new interactive art project by Kule Ingozi, a London based artist and a former child soldier from Sierra Leone. It consisted of subtly figurative blood simulacrum paintings by the artist. The 2008 fair had a section called Classic Photo which included examples of the work of the earliest practitioners from anonymous Daguerreotypists to William Henry Fox Talbot from the 19th Century.
