Elsecar Antiques and Collectables Fairs

The Elsecar Antiques and Collectables Fairs is one of the largest and most awaited monthly events of its kind in Yorkshire, with more than 130 vendors showcasing a wide variety of vintage and antique items

Started in the 1990s the Elsecar Antiques and Collectables Fairs has become the largest and one of the most awaited monthly events of its kind in Yorkshire. Even though the organizers of the event have changed since the 1990s, the popularity of the Elsecar Antiques and Collectables Fairs has remained strong

The Elsecar Antiques and Collectables Fairs is housed in a group of buildings that have been standing since the late 1700s, and which are nowadays the property of the local council which protects and restores them. Needless to say, history buffs will have plenty to admire here, between the building itself and the goods up for sale.

More than 130 vendors take part in the monthly Elsecar Antiques and Collectables Fairs. During fair weather, stalls are set up both indoors and outdoors, though the indoor space is large enough to accommodate everyone if the weather does not cooperate. The number of vendors makes this one of the larger gatherings of antique enthusiasts and collectors in this area of England, which of course makes it a popular event on the antiquing calendar for the UK.

With such a great number of stallholders, Elsecar Antiques and Collectables Fairs has a wide variety of vintage and antique items to offer visitors. Keen shoppers can expect to find a  huge range of kitchenalia, stoneware, vintage books, stamp collections, cigarette and postcards, paintings and other artwork, ceramics and china, vintage toys, furniture, linens, pottery, and porcelain. Vendors are always ready to supply a story or two to accompany their items and encourage a little bargaining too. This means there are always deals to be had at this fair to suit every budget.

Visitors never know what they might find on the stalls at the Elsecar Antiques and Collectables Fairs, which is one of the pleasures of being there, rummaging through all the items from yesteryear. Nostalgia is guaranteed and whether you are a serious collector or not, there will be something here that catches your eye.

"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."
