Housed in over 20,000 sq ft in the iconic reclaimed Malthouse on the banks of the Painswick stream in the Cotswolds, the fair offers visitors the opportunity to feast their eyes on an impressive mix of decorative furniture, collectable treasures and gardenalia from the 18th century to the present day.
The event will comprise of over 20 external dealers, in addition to the offering of the 80 resident dealers, designers and makers of the Malthouse Collective.
There's something for everyone at the fair, and with affordable items to suit all pockets, the temptation to buy something is even more irresistible. Entry is free, and visitors can not only browse and buy, they will also have the opportunity to meet with the dealers who will be on hand to share stories behind the individual pieces.
"This fair capitalises on the success of last year's event," said Lindsey Butcher, owner of The Malthouse Collective. "Apart from our resident dealers and makers, we´re opening the fair up and inviting dealers from outside the Collective to show their style of antiques, so visitors can see a whole range of exciting new treasures and collectables.
"It´s a truly inspirational shopping experience - and a great day out to pick up that unusual gift or addition for your home or garden."
There's so much to see including Alexandra Cunha with her period pieces and decorative items, Rosablue with handmade fabrics and gifts, Thewasherwoman with vintage textiles and costume as well as all things curious from The Curious Flea!
Visitors can also enjoy tasty treats at The Malthouse Bar and Kitchen, as well as delicious homemade cakes from The Lavender Bakehouse.
