National Botanic Gardens of Wales Antique Fair

Set in the heart of the picturesque and historic Carmarthenshire and still just minutes away from the M4 corridor, the National Botanic Gardens of Wales Antique Fair is a unique spot for the antiques fair and vintage market

The National Botanic Gardens of Wales Antique Fair is a rather special event indeed. Set in the heart of the picturesque and historic Carmarthenshire and still just minutes away from the M4 corridor, it is a unique spot for the antiques fair and vintage market. This whole event is somewhat of a hidden gem, and since the market only takes place over four weekends each year it is one that definitely should not be missed.

The National Botanic Gardens of Wales Antique Fair has grown steadily since 2010. There are nowadays more than 50 professional stallholders selling at this fair, and the number of visitors regularly increases. One of the draws is the sheer variety of antiques that are on offer at this fantastic setting, and of course, there is a great appeal in the fact that shoppers are free to wander around the gardens at their own leisure while perusing for desired collectibles. It may well be the only setting of its kind for such an antique market in the country.

Quality antiques are available at The National Botanic Gardens of Wales Antique Fair, and they are well mixed with vintage items and a touch of retro flair. Fine displays of silverware can be seen, alongside jewelry, textiles, large and small items of furniture, clocks and watches, porcelain items, vintage clothing, books, stamp collections, posters and postcards, telephones, bicycles and so much more.

The organizers of The National Botanic Gardens of Wales Antique Fair make the most out of every available space at their disposal. Stallholders are creative with their displays, and there are stalls set up in indoor areas as well as tables in outdoor areas sheltered by temporary marquees. It means that this event can be enjoyed whatever the weather, which is important for the UK, especially as one of the weekend markets usually takes place in January!

"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."
