Malmö Dekorativa

The third largest antique fair in Sweden, Malmö Dekorativa is considered one of Sweden's best kept secrets in the world of antiques, though it is quickly gaining an international reputation and attracting both shoppers and vendors from overseas

A fairly new arrival to the world of antique and vintage markets is the Malmö Dekorativa, which has been taking place since 2017. Even though it is a young market, Malmö Dekorativa is already the third largest in Sweden with more than 80 dealers attending. It is considered one of Sweden’s best kept secrets in the world of antiques, though it is quickly gaining an international reputation and attracting both shoppers and vendors from overseas.

The location of the Malmö Dekorativa is the manor house of Katrinetorp, which is a lovely building worth visiting in its own right, with a superb garden oasis. It is easy to find, a short drive from both the airport and the city center. The accessibility is one of the reasons why the Malmö Dekorativa is becoming quickly popular, especially with vendors from further afield. All attendees here are experts in their areas of antiques, and enjoy the chance to meet and talk with others with similar interests. Because of this, it is also the perfect event for collectors, both wizened and new, to gain more information about the goods here.

The Malmö Dekorativa has a great and varied selection of goods, with the range spanning from mid century modern to antique. The organizers aim to have around 70% of antiques, and 30% more vintage items. There are fantastic items of furniture, grandfather clocks, mirrors, old maps, tools, some wonderful art work, ornamental items, decorative pieces and more. Prices vary; there are certainly some high end antiques and art work on offer here, and prices reflect the quality of these goods. However, the variety is excellent, and there are goods here for all budgets.

The most keen collectors can pay a little extra for an early peek at the items for sale at Malmö Dekorativa. Most would agree that this is more than worth it! However, there is plenty to see over the whole weekend of this event, so mark the date and be sure to attend.

"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."
