How We Got Started
We hosted our first Flea at West Mid Showground in Shrewsbury on the 16th / 17th May 2015. We had 80 traders turn up to exhibit and just shy of 2500 members of public through the door. Our second Flea was on the 19th / 20th September and we received some excellent, positive and constructive feedback that we have brought forward to our 2016 events .
We hosted five Flea's in 2016 and each flea has attracted both regular traders and new traders. Our research shows that these traders are planning trading with us again. Our best flea saw 4300 visitors through the door and we are hoping to increase this further at our six Flea's in 2017.
Our Flea's attract a fantastic collection of traders ranging from French furniture, taxidermy, fabric's, vintage postcards, Hungarian furniture, Antiques, Vintage clothing, collectibles and salvage. All the traders are of a very high quality and have traveled to us from all over the country.
We consider ourselves to be the next generation of Antique and Collector events and will be marketing our Flea's and antique fairs in a variety of ways both traditional and modern to attract a diverse visitor. We will continue to push our events to ensure both traders and our customers go away happy!
We are really excited to be hosting a NEW joint event at the end of the year at Lilleshall National sports centre. This event will be extra special for both trader and our customer so it is not to be missed!
Our fair at Shrewsbury Sports Village has been established for three years and is in a fantastic location with excellent potential to double in size. At present this fair has 70 traders which fills half the venue but our plan for 2017 is to again remarket it. Shrewsbury Antique and Collectors will be changing to Shrewsbury Antique, Vintage and Mid century fair from March next year. We feel this change will attract both different traders and buyers to the fair. To book this fair simply go to BOOK NOW.
