Sunbury Antiques Market
I am often asked by friends and clients ‘where can I find good vintage pieces for the house?’ The trouble in London is that many of the markets have become tourist attractions, meaning that prices have shot up in value and that quality is more centred around ‘flat whites’ than unique antiques.
The answer is ‘Sunbury Antiques Market’ based at Kempton Race Course. If you, like me are not afraid of early starts and can hold your own when it comes to bartering, this is the place for you.
Outside there are all sorts of beautiful things to stumble on; vintage rugs, French linens, old trunks, suitcases and boxes, vans full of mirrors and glass arrangements and of course furniture.
Despite the early hour Sunbury Antiques market, offers a pretty good chance of stumbling across something unique that you might love and is a great morning out – especially if the sun is shining! The market happen bi-monthly and you can find all the dates on the website below. Have fun and shhhh,… don’t tell too many people!
