Builth Wells International Antiques and Collectors Fair

Welcoming twice a year over 10,000 potential buyers and up to 1,000 stall-holders from both the UK and the continent, The International Antiques fair of Wales is a true antique extravaganza

Builth Wells International Antiques and Collectors Fair takes place twice a year, and is one of the largest collections of antiques traders and shoppers in the UK.  Set in Mid-Wales on the Welsh – English border, access to the location is really easy with main roads passing through beautiful countryside, which is itself a tourist attraction. The fair attracts 10,000 to 15,000 potential buyers over the two days and hosts up to 1,000 stall-holders, from both the UK and from across the continent.

Nothing is done by halves at the Builth Wells International Antiques and Collectors Fair. Two huge exhibitions halls are set up, and each of these is almost half filled up by fitter stands and a large balcony. There are 8 huge, drive-in buildings that are completely under cover, and the whole showground is also filled with extra stands and marquees.

The grandeur of the set up is certainly matched by the items that around brought for trade at the Builth Wells International Antiques and Collectors Fair. There is furniture crafted from the best selection of mahogany, pine, walnut and oak woods; fine porcelain including marvelous examples of the work of Royal Worcester; antique jewelery pieces ranging from affordable £50 items to those with a price tag only suited to the most serious of collectors. There are also paintings, military memorabilia, coin collections, rugs, textiles and too many household items and decorative objects to mention.

The Builth Wells International Antiques and Collectors fair is an event that needs to be marked in the calendar, and those that have attended once will be certain to make the journey here year after year. It is perhaps fortunate that the fair does not take place more regularly, so there is plenty of time to save up for the next coveted treasure!

"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."
