The Bridge House Antiques Market has acquired a certain amount of fame and prestige after being featured on one of the BBC’s popular antiquing shows “Make Me a Dealer”. This enormous warehouse is found next to the River Stour in Bournemouth and is home to a real mix of antique, retro and vintage stalls. Many different dealers set up shop within, and create almost mini-shops in their own right with their displays. It makes the large space a joy to walk around and provides plenty of shopping opportunities for all tastes.
Staff at The Bridge House Antiques Market are really friendly, and ready to help out anyone strolling around the store. This goes from answering questions about specific pieces to helping to search out a specific desired collectible piece. They always make visitors feel welcome. Some of the stallholders are present in the store, others entrust the handling of their wares to the experienced staff. This means that shoppers are able to negotiate prices a lot more than others, though it is always possible to find a bargain here one way or the other.
With so much variety on sale at The Bridge House Antiques Market, it is easy to spend a lot of time within. Shoppers will find fantastic porcelain items, glassware, wall clocks, wooden puppets, furniture, wooden masks and statues, model sailing boats, lamps, traditional board games and so much more. The displays are enticing indeed, and ever-changing too, which is no mean feat for a large store that opens every day.
The Bridge House Antiques Market has a lovely cafe within so that visitors in need of refreshment and some homemade cake can easily recharge. With plenty of free parking just outside the building too, it could not be easier to indulge in a little shopping trip here.
