One of North Wales’ largest antiques and collectables, Oswestry Antique & Collectors Fair regularly attracts since 2006, traders from across the UK, Ireland, and Europe. This major event in the UK’s antiquing calendar typically hosts over 200 dealers, and has been a regular on BBC’s Bargain Hunt, a popular antique-hunting TV shows in the UK.

The location for Oswestry Antique & Collectors Fair feels as though it was designed to facilitate large fairs and flea markets, and logistics here are very fluid and well organized. There is plenty of parking for all, every area is easy to access and with over 36 acres of land there is space for everyone! Three of the showground’s permanent building are typically used for any and all that require or prefer indoor space for their wares, and there is almost unlimited outdoor space for all others.

Oswestry Antique & Collectors Fair has become known for the huge variety of goods displayed by the vendors, with all manner collectables imaginable. There are antique furniture, vintage clothing and fabric, gold and silver items, coin and stamp collections, postcards, posters, books, antique jewellery, glass, porcelain ornaments, old clocks and pocket watches. There are also reclaimed and up-cycled objects, architectural salvage, and occasionally vintage cars are brought along for display from vendors’ private collections!

All in all, a great deal of effort is put into Oswestry Antique & Collectors Fair to make it accessible for all. For anyone keen to learn more about collectable goods or possible antiques they may have in their possession, both vendors and organizers are on hand to provide any information required. With plenty of food and drink available too, strategically placed among the booths, visitors are hard pushed to spend less than the full day at this event, and even more challenged to leave empty handed.

  1. Brilliant enjoyable fair!

    Excellent, relaxed, enjoyable fair with one of the best organisers in the country.
    You can find everything from traditional antiques to vintage clothing. There are three large halls one of which is a furniture hall where I have bought some beautiful pieces. As a dealer of 30 years it was always a pleasure to stand with the previous organisers but I can honestly say that jos events have turned this fair around and it will go from strength to strength. Well done and everyone needs to visit!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
