Ready for the off - Sandown Park Antiques Market launches 03 April 2018

With the launch of their brand new event at Sandown Park due to launch on Tuesday 3 April 2018, we talk to Edward and Jennie Cruttenden owners of the madly successful Sunbury Antiques Fair at Kempton Park, now in its 39th year - see "In conversation with ..." over on the blog.

Now in the last furlong of the set up for the new Sandown Park Antiques Market, Edward had a few words to share:

So the story so far ……

Antiques News & Fairs - Kempton Antiques Market

Dawn rising over Kempton Antiques Market


The jungle drums of the antiques world have certainly been working overtime, from the feedback we’ve received it seems everyone is talking about it and certainly around Surrey we are ’the talk of the town’. I popped into a local furniture shop in Cobham last Friday and was talking to the owner.  We had never met before and we were talking about Kempton and she mentioned “you’re running Sandown aren’t you, the first ones next week, we are all looking forward to it, I’ve been telling everyone! “.

Walking around Kempton Antiques market just this Tuesday all the traders were wishing us success and saying they are coming to support us in whatever capacity they can, either trading or coming to buy, so we are super excited.

With over 300 traders now booked and confirmed the future of Sandown Antiques Market is looking good. With a number of outside traders also committing (some travelling as far as France, Holland, Belgium) this should give the buyers a little flavour of what we are looking to bring long term. Obviously not wanting to run before we walk but we are working on bringing more furniture dealers and outside traders to Sandown but at a pace which will be consistent with the overall health and growth of the event itself. So watch this space. in the meantime thanks to all supporters and we look forward to welcoming you all to Sandown next week.
