The experience of shopping for antiques is always enhanced when even the building is a historical artifact, and this is just what collectors get at The Pumping Station in Wales, UK. This incredible old pumping station dates back to Victorian times and it is now a Grade II listed building. It is a wonderful sight to behold, and the fact that it is home to more than 40 independent dealers of antique and vintage items is simply the icing on the cake.

Many of the vendors trading under the 32,000 square feet roof of the Pumping Station are permanent installations. They are their day in, day out, touting their wares, improving their displays, and engaging with collectors and customers from all walks of life. Their passion for antiques is evident and there is a real sense of fellowship as visitors stroll through. Any questions that shoppers may have are quickly and knowledgeably answered and where specific collectibles are sought, vendors are happy to point collectors towards the right stalls.

The number of different vendors makes for an eclectic mix of antiques up for grabs at the Pumping Station. Bijou Antiques has been in the business for more than 30 years and has a great reputation for sourcing quality furniture and decorative antiques. Nadine’s Interiors buys and sells French and other continental items, as well as traditional furniture and quality clothing. Crowvalley Militaria has everything that one interested in the history of wars and armed conflicts would want to see, from helmets and medals to documents and photos. Otto’s Emporium focuses more on vintage goodies, with an additional twist of up-cycling and industrial chic.

Contact details for each of the dealers at the Pumping Station can be found on their website. There is also always a helpful member of staff on site who takes charge of the varying stalls when the vendors are not able to be there in person. Negotiations for goods can always be arranged through the wonderful staff, so visitors never need to leave this market empty-handed.

"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."
