Mercatino dell’Antiquariato a Sacile is one of the most important antique markets in the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, besides the Mercatino dell’antiquariato a Godega di Sant’Urbano and the Mercatino Antiquariato E Usato Di Portobuffolè. It takes place in the charming historic center of Sacile, a small village located in the province of Pordenone. Once a month Sacile welcomes from dawn to dusk, a large crowd of antique vendors specializing in antique trinkets and collectibles.
Also known as “Sacellum, la Piazza delle Antichità” this antique market extends into the main streets of the historic center of Sacile, in particular on Piazza del Popolo. During Christmas time, the market is also held in Viale Zancanaro and via Cavour.
Mercatino dell’Antiquariato a Sacile features a broad selection of antique items catering to all kinds of tastes and, above all, budget. From the rigorous antique clocks collector, or the antique enthusiast looking for old furniture to furnish his or her home, to the fashionista passionate about vintage clothes, Sacellum, la Piazza delle Antichità appeals to a large and heterogeneous group of shoppers.
Bargains are always ready to pop up around the corner, among the piles of antiques that await new enthusiastic owners: antique dolls, vintage ceramics and vases, antique pieces of furniture, religious artifacts, silverware, lamps, stamps, coins, postcards, old century newspapers, and many photographs are some of the many items that can be found there. Like it is the case for many similar markets, it is hard to really know where to start and one feels like buying everything. Also, if you plan to organize your antique foray in the month of April, you might also be lucky enough to come across the Spring Bird Fair, one of the most anticipated events in the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
Last but not least, a trip to Sacile is its own reward: the historic town center stands on two islands on the Livenza river and along whose banks overlook the most beautiful noble palaces of the Venetian period, which is why Sacile is called the “garden of the Serenissima”.
