Located within a few hundred metres of the great North Road linking London and Edinburgh (York, Leeds and Harrogate are less than 15 miles away), the Great Wetherby Racecourse Antiques Fair is definitely one of those events that feels connected to its surrounding region, in terms of vendors and customers and in the items for sale.
This explains why buyers and dealers travel from a wide area to attend the Great Wetherby Racecourse Antiques Fair, which is especially popular with collectors and buyers from the North East.
This great fair is set in the fabulous Bramham Hall Exhibition Centre and Millenium Grandstand with numerous outside pitches. Several of the outdoor stalls of this flea market feature agricultural implements and rustic household items recalling the area’s rural heritage. A few vendors also sell railway memorabilia.
At the inside stalls of this flea market you will see ceramics, glassware, prints, books, ladies’ clothing and accessories, everyday kitchenware, jewellery and watches, with an emphasis on vintage rather than antiques. You stand a fair chance of picking up something appealing and affordable at this friendly and down-to-earth event.
Antiquing Tip Of The Day
Forget that dream of finding the rare collectible action figure or priceless 19th century end table at the flea market for ten bucks. Shoppers aren’t likely to find a real steal in a venue where most vendors are experts in their particular niche.
