Bath has a wide variety of antiques on offer. You have to search these out as they are a bit spread out over the city but some are real gems.
These are some of the independent markets and shops we recommend that you visit
- BathVA Vintage & Antiques Markets -First & last Sunday of every month, 8.30am – 4pm. Located in the historic Green Park Station, a beautiful, listed Victorian building with its stunning vaulted curved glass roof, in central Bath. Housing up to 60 high-quality traders.
- Bath Saturday Antique (flea) Market is open every Saturday, the first and still the best market in Bath. A small Portobello of the west. A great selection of collectables and always a great atmosphere. We buy our cutlery from here! Every Saturday, early until 5pm

- Out of Bath but not far away both the County Showground at Shepton Mallett and Lansdown racecourse hold regular antique and collectibles fairs
- One of our special places is On Reflections which sells the most beautiful antique mirrors See them on line or visit them at their barn in Charlton Hawthorne
- Many of the shops also operate on line. Have a look at their websites first to see if they stock the items that you are looking for. However, much of their stock changes quickly so it is always worth visiting in any case.
- For more bric-a-brac (upcycling) then the shop of Morford Street has a stock that changes all the time, as does Rolfey’s in Bear Flats and is renowned haunt of many locals
- Whatever you buy make sure you can carry it home! We currently are looking after chandelier for guest who arrived by train. Bath has a very good independent professional packing service if you need it sent abroad.
