Anyone living in the north of England with an interest in antique items will have no doubt heard of the International Yorkshire Antique Home and Vintage Fair. This market takes place three times a year, and is a real event worth marking in the calendar. It is the largest antique fair of its kind in the north of England and attracts traders and shoppers from around the UK and, as the name suggests, from further afield.
The International Yorkshire Antique Home and Vintage Fair is made up of two large arenas crammed full of vendors. Both are fully covered, indoor set ups, so there are no worries about weather ruining a good weekend’s shopping. One of the arenas has fixed booths in place, the other is populated by more casual, table-top sellers. Both boast antiques, collectables and a whole range of items of excellent quality, with enough variety to delight any and all visitors.
Goods on sale at the International Yorkshire Antique Home and Vintage Fair range from the small and dainty to large furniture pieces, and prices also fluctuate from £1 to £50,000. Therefore, it is safe to say that all budgets are accounted for! There are some really outstanding furniture pieces of high quality hardwood, china ware, items of glass, toy collections, vintage clothing and bag collections, jewelery, art work and much more. To say it is impossible to be bored at the International Yorkshire Antique Home and Vintage Fair is an understatement, and it may take both days of the weekend long event to get through all the vendors in both arenas.
There is plenty of free parking at the International Yorkshire Antique Home and Vintage Fair. There is also a restaurant on site, plus plenty of stands with tea, coffee and other refreshments so there is no problem spending the whole day (or even the weekend) at this fair.
