Antiques News & Fairs is delighted to be collaborating with the Bath Decorative Fair and Bath Vintage & Antiques Market to highlight the wonderful independent and fashionable lifestyle shopping in the famous Georgian City of Bath.
Working with a group of independent shops and watering holes favoured by the cool cognoscenti of Bath to celebrate the seriously fun shopping opportunities for homemakers of every age who want to embrace green and ethical shopping but who are also keen to remain ahead of the pack on the style front with unique and affordable pieces which can become family heirlooms with investment potential.
The event will focus on 2 weeks in March 2016 kicking off with the Bath VA Market on Sunday 6th March with a Brocante turning Green Park Station into a French style market for the day and continuing with the acclaimed Bath Decorative Antiques Fair 10-12 March.
The 2 week event will be peppered with events organised by the the sponsors – think candlelit suppers with guest speakers, styling workshops with professional stylists to help you work with both antiques and contemporary pieces and other events around the city to entice you to get social and network to support our local independent businesses.
