Widely considered to be the premier antiquing event in Scotland, and most certainly the largest, Edinburgh Antiques, Vintage & Collectors Fair takes place four times a year and each time the popularity of this event grows. The Royal Highland Center, a huge, warehouse-type space, is transformed quarterly into a feast of collectables, vintage goods and high quality antiques that can be enjoyed whatever the weather – which is awesome as Scotland is not famous for its warm and sunny days.

One of the great things about the Edinburgh Antiques, Vintage & Collectors Fair is the huge variety of items to be found. Many collectables can be acquired at great prices too, if bargaining skills are well honed and put to the test. However, it is possible to pay a little extra for early entry to this market, which of course all the serious collectors do. So waiting for the ‘normal’ opening times may see most of the best deals already made and the most coveted items already with new owners.

Whether visitors are searching for specific items to add to collections, looking for inspiration to jazz up homes and wardrobes or just wanting to enjoy browsing through curios, the Edinburgh Antiques, Vintage & Collectors Fair has everyone covered. There is amazing glassware, vintage jewelery, handbags, clothes, toys, furniture, china and so much more.

The location of the Edinburgh Antiques, Vintage & Collectors Fair is easy to find and organizers ensure that it is easily accessible by all. It is really close to the airport and there is a complementary and regular bus service to the market from Edinburgh city center. There is also free parking at the event itself. So there is really no excuse not to attend!

It is best to arrive to the Edinburgh Antiques, Vintage & Collectors Fair with plenty of cash on hand, as not all vendors accept payment by card. There is an ATM on site though for emergency shopping needs, so purchasing is always possible!

Michael Peeler
"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."
Nicolas Martin
"Letting luck be your only guide in your search for antiques means taking the risk of missing out on great opportunities. Come prepared with a sense of direction and stop wasting your time. Let Fleamapket guide you."
