The South West of England is already a popular place for tourism in the UK, both by Brits themselves and visitors from overseas. The ragged coast is always just a stone’s throw away, the countryside is far reaching and it a generally a quiet and relaxed area. One of the bigger cities in the region is Exeter, and it is here that the International Westpoint Antiques and Collectors Fair is held three times a year.
The International Westpoint Antiques and Collectors Fair hosts upwards of 400 stands, offering a mixture of fixed structures and a table-top affair more reminiscent of the typical British car boot sale. The stalls are all undercover, so this antique fair can be fully enjoyed come rain or shine. The layout is clear and though there are hundreds of vendors, this event is organized in such a way that everything is easy enough to find and there is a clear route around all the stands and their various treasures.
The International Westpoint Antiques and Collectors Fair attracts dealers from throughout the UK, though the majority are fairly local representing all areas of the south west. Because of this, this antique fair is a great place to come for anyone interested in local history, as well as collectable items from bygone days. There are furniture stands, pottery collections, china and glass ware, stamp experts, clothing displays, antique toys, vintage posters and signage, curios, decorative items, paintings, jewelery and much more. There are certainly items here to suit all tastes and fit in every collection.
In case the excellent collections at the International Westpoint Antiques and Collectors Fair leave visitors feeling weary, there are many stands interspersed among the antiques offering locally made snacks, cakes, coffee and other refreshments. This makes it all too easy to continue shopping all through the day!
