We love taking the time to select the stalls that we believe provide a good cross section of Mid-century antiques at affordable prices.

Virender Rose, co-partner, said “we’re excited about the number and the range of stands we’ll be showcasing this time around. Turners Vintage & Retro, Rogue and Fox, Gingers Vintage Retro Home, Fifties Art, MidCentury Boy, Marvellous Furniture, My First Record, Retro-Pattern, Button Backed, Maison Brocante, Retro Rebound, Fragile Design,Vintage Warehouse 13, to name just a few. We always have great stands and our visitors love the fact that they don’t need to travel to London to visit a great MidCentury fair anymore”
