The Waterford Antique Market opened in 1999. Over the years, the building has slowly changed and morphed into its current state. The owners are passionate about making sure the site is up-to-date and easily accessible whilst still maintaining its vintage charm and authenticity.
Spread over 17,000 square feet, this Canadian vintage market has received nothing but shining reviews. In fact, The Waterford Antique Market currently stands as #3 of #9 things to do in Waterford on Tripadvisor. The 60+ vendors of this antique market sell a great variety of objects, such as antique cameras, record players, Canadian pottery, floral armchairs, glassware, china, and beautiful statement pieces of furniture. The owners have great connections, so if you’re looking for something in particular and can’t find it – it’s worth asking them if they can get hold of it for you.
All of the items are genuine and great quality products and available at a very reasonable price. The vendors aren’t there in person, instead they leave their antiques and collectibles at the site and leave the owners in charge of selling them.

Many customers have left reviews saying that they have narrowly missed out on a purchase because someone else was quicker than them.

Antiquing Tip Of The Day
If you’re buying 19th-century furniture, you’re probably looking for pieces that have primary or secondary paint. With newly painted pieces that are trying to look older, there’s usually a repetition in the paint that seems too regular. On a piece that has been banged around for the last 200 years, the paint’s not going to be regular; it’s going to be chipped off in places.
