V and A Fairs’ Read more [...]
This longstanding event at York Racecourse is under new management and back on New Years Day on 1st January 2019.
Quality dealers from all over the UK will be joined by hand-chosen local traders, offering a wide selection of Antiques, Collectables, Vintage and Curios.
Find treasures galore from 20th Century Fashion and Jewellery, to Victoriana, Silver, Retro and Furnishings.
Visitors and traders alike love the quirks and nuances of this fair; the juxtaposition of Porcelain and Glass, Homeware and Upholstery, Timepieces and Militaria. Many shoppers choose to make a full day of their visit, enjoying a light brunch from the onsite restaurant before rejoining like-minded visitors in the hunt for their next purchase. There’s something for everyone, for all homes and for all budgets and the 2019 fair is set to be our biggest and best yet..! And new for 2019 there will be a Classic Car display taking place alongside*.
What to expect
Whether you’re buying or browsing, seeking an expert appraisal or simply wanting some inspiration, all are welcome on New Years Day. There’s something for everyone, for all homes and for all budgets… Traditionalists or antiquarians might find Arts & Crafts, Mahogany or Oak Furniture, Fine China, Porcelain, Silverware and more. Mid-century enthusiasts can look forward to Scandinavian Glass, Art, Pottery and Design. There’s probably Film Posters, Old Cameras and some Vinyl records to boot.
