Buxton Antique and Collectors Fair

The Buxton Antique and Collectors Fair has been taking place at the Buxton Pavilion gardens since the early 1980s and is certainly still nowadays a highlight of the antiquing scene for traditional antiques and classics in the north of England

The Buxton Antique and Collectors Fair is organized by Halcyon Fairs and has been taking place at the Buxton Pavilion gardens since the early 1980s. Such a long-standing event has obviously remained popular over the decades with good reasons, and the organizers are proud of their insider knowledge, having been dealers themselves with more than 40 years of experience. It also means that they have a huge passion for antiquing too, and keep their fingers on the pulse of changing tastes and trends while embracing traditional antiques and classics.

Held inside the recently renovated Octagon Ballroom, the Buxton Antique and Collectors Fair brings together more than 100 dealers to tout their wares and share their knowledge with keen shoppers and collectors. Dealers are carefully selected so that there is a great range of items on display, enough to enthrall both serious collectors and the more casual browser. The vendors also create a lovely welcoming atmosphere at these markets, and the friendly vibes are one of the main reasons that visitors return again and again to these fairs.

Since it is a rather infrequent market, the Buxton Antique and Collectors Fair can always guarantee new stock and interesting finds for even the most regular visitors. Vendors specialize in a wide variety of antique and vintage goods, including clothing, jewelry, pocket watches, shelving and other furniture items, textiles and other wall hangings, artwork, mirrors, light fittings and lamps, pens, stamps, toys both antique and vintage and so much more. Pricing is more than reasonable, so there is definitely something for every taste and every budget here.

The Buxton Antique and Collectors Fair is certainly a highlight of the antiquing scene in the north of England. There is a small entrance fee to attend this fair, though children are free. With plenty of refreshments available on site, this market makes for the perfect day out at the weekend, come rain or shine.

"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."
