Though quite the bustling market town, Stockport was long crying out for an authentic vintage and antique fair, and sure enough The Vintage Village fills this hole wonderfully. Since 2010, every second Sunday sees this pop-up village take over the Victorian Market Hall in the center of Stockport. The hall is a perfect location for an antique market, providing cover to the +70 stalls from those frequent English showers (though the sides used to be open, leading to the building’s nickname of ‘the glass umbrella’!) with plenty of space for the many vendors that take part in this event.

There is a real sense of community behind The Vintage Village. The organizers were very much driven by a desire to breathe some vintage life into the Market Hall, and to bring a quality selection of vintage ware to the town. Prior to these markets, this area was pretty quiet on Sundays, and now the whole area is full of action! Bargain hunters will be pleased with the goods on offer, and there are always a few treats for the more seasoned collector too. The organizers are determined that this remains an event that can be enjoyed by all, no matter the budget of the visitors.

The items on sale at The Vintage Village are greatly varied, and sellers of course change up their stock, particularly throughout the year to reflect the seasons. Among the staples are vintage books, type-writers, binoculars, clothing, old cameras, clocks, comics, teddy bears, bicycles, vinyl collections and so much more. It is a joy to look around, with so much to reminisce over and so many memories held within the goods.

Many of the vendors at The Vintage Village are regulars and have plenty of information to share about their wares. It is difficult indeed to leave this market empty-handed, as so many of the items will fit perfectly into any home. It can just be tough to choose only one or two pieces!

"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."
