Antikmässan takes place in Sweden and is the largest and top art fair for antiques held in the Nordic region. It was created in 1978, which also makes it one of the longest-running fairs in the area. The fact that this event has had continued success over multiple decades speaks to the reputation that it has for the high quality and authenticity of its pieces. This fair usually takes place over five days just once a year. It is always greatly anticipated and a highlight in the Nordic antiquing calendar.

The crowds that attend Antikmässan each year are made up of international art lovers, collectors, professionals, and of course, those who are simply curious to see unique pieces of history. Around 250 booths are set up for this event, spread over 4,500 square meters. The large, indoor venue is a great setting for such a popular event. More than 20,000 visitors can pass through the doors over the duration of this fair, but thankfully the use of space is well thought out and it is rare to feel over-crowded or stressed here.

Of course, with so many booths set up by a wide range of vendors at Antikmässan, visitors are in for a real treat when it comes to viewing the antiques. Each exhibitor is friendly and approachable, welcoming questions about their specific items and enjoying conversations about antiques, art, and collecting in general. Visitors can expect to see ancient furniture, Mid-century modern design, marble sculptures, terracottas, antique bronzes, lighting fixtures, decorative carpets, fine clocks, Old Master paintings, and so much more.

There is an entrance fee to pay to enjoy all the antiques at Antikmässan. Tickets must be bought online as there is no way to pay at the door at this event. It is worth keeping up with their online news too, as each year the fair has a distinct theme that is consistent throughout all the exhibitions. Talks, discussions, and open lectures complete the immersion in the world of art and antiques that this fair provides.

"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."
