The market town of Bridport is making quite a local name for itself with antique lovers and collectors, and one of the most favorite stops here is The Alleyways Antiques Center. The location of the town in the English countryside with coastal views means it is already an area worth visiting, and the awesome antique stores just provide another convincing reason to stop by.
With over 50 traders set up within The Alleyways Antiques Center, it can feel like walking into a different shop every time you visit. Vendors take care to constantly re-invent their displays, and the store owners are ever searching for new dealers to join their team. Even though the store is open every day, regular visitors will agree that there is always something new to see here. This is why local collectors can often be found browsing through the goods!
The Alleyways Antiques Center offers a wide variety of antique and vintage items, enough to please both casual shoppers and the more serious collector. Shoppers will find pieces of furniture both large and small, lamps, brassware, chinaware, goodies for the garden and kitchen, wall hangings and artwork, vintage clothing and more. The different vendor areas are easy to navigate, and though there are hundreds of items to browse through none of the displays are crowded. Therefore, it is relatively easy to make sure that you do not miss anything on offer here.
When planning a trip to The Alleyways Antiques Center, it is a good idea to check the calendar and coincide with the running of the unmissable Bridport Vintage Market held just once a month. On these weekends, the town comes to life with so many different antiques and vintage dealers coming from both near and far. It is a time when the art and vintage quarter really goes in full swing, and anyone with an interest in anything vintage will have a blast.
