AAFSW’s Annual Art and BookFair (ABF)

has relocated for 2022 and will take place in the new National Museum of American Diplomacy, located near the remodeled 21st St entrance to the Department of State from Friday October 27 to Saturday November 5. Hours are 11 am – 3 pm. Thousands of used books, art objects, jewelry, paintings, collectibles, stamps and coins are available. All items are donated by Foreign Service families and friends of AAFSW who have traveled overseas. It’s a wonderful place to shop for unusual and unique gifts. 

There is a wide range of books from architecture to zoology and many subjects in between. Collector’s Corner has special books of greater value. For philatelists, the Stamp Corner is just the place to go. Every year is different and exciting. 

Admission is free, and the public is invited on weekends. Books are half price on the last day. 

The proceeds from the Art and BookFair go to a number of worthy causes–scholarships for Foreign Service and Civil Service students, continuing education scholarships for spouses and partners, Foreign Service projects such as the Foreign Service Youth Foundation and other community projects. Over the years, the AAFSW has given away over a million dollars.

VISA, Mastercard, American Express, and checks are accepted.
