Lincolnshire International Antiques and Home Show

Hosting thousands of antique vendors, the bi-monthly Lincolnshire International Antiques and Home Show is one of the largest antique markets in Europe, and is often considered an antiquing extravaganza.

It is certainly an understatement to categorize the Lincolnshire International Antiques and Home Show as anything like a flea market. It is more accurate to call this event an antiquing extravaganza! Every other month, something like a village full of stalls is created in Lincoln, Lincolnshire, where vendors from around the world travel to in order to participate in this amazing show.

Since its establishment in 1995 at RAF Swinderby, the Lincolnshire International Antiques and Home Show has now grown to become one of the largest antique markets in Europe. Its size cannot be overstated – there are literally thousands of stalls spread over 200 acres, and it is now the event that is compulsory to attend for anyone interested in antiques, home design, collectables, furniture or just a really good time. It’s growing success and popularity is the result of the dedicated work of it organizers, whose passion for both antiques and customer service creates the perfect atmosphere to showcase the perfect collection.

The Lincolnshire International Antiques and Home Show attracts antique dealers and exhibitors from European countries and most of them make the effort to travel to Lincoln every time this show is scheduled. Besides antiques and vintage enthusiasts, the Lincolnshire International Antiques and Home Show also attracts interior designers, collectors, buyers for retail businesses and restaurants, landscape designers, props buyers from production companies, as well as set designers. The shows feature antiques and vintage items, ranging from furniture and lighting, to jewelry, glassware, gardenalia, curios, militaria, china, artwork, vintage handbags, ginger beer bottles, ice cream molds, linens, cameras and canes, toys, bric-a-brac, and unusual items that can’t be found anywhere else.

The facilities are excellent at the Lincolnshire International Antiques and Home Show – plenty of food and other refreshments are available within the premises, including a fully licensed bar, parking is free and plentiful and there is an abundance of covered space so weather is not an issue. The varied and highly qualified crowd creates an incredible vibe at the Lincolnshire International Antiques and Home Show and all that attend, whether browsers or sellers, cannot help but enjoy themselves.

"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."
