THE PRESS SAY: ‘the best antiques you’ve never seen’
WE SAY: Inspiring retail display objects, if you have time to look! If you don’t, simply visit the online ‘Prop Shop’ where we’ve done the searching for you’
Last month Time Out magazine blew the cover on the hidden secrets of Sunbury Antiques Market. So intense was the vitriol from its regular shoppers, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if they’d attempted an injunction against this traitorous act of ‘kiss and tell’. Time out describes it as ‘the best antique fair you’ve never seen’, and in fact the leaked gem has remained largely under the radar, till now. Boasting some 700 plus traders from all over Europe, who’d have known Sunbury’s been trading for over 42 years? Bric-a-brac, antiques and vintage wares may have previously been seen as nothing more than ‘junk’, today they’re the ‘must have’ ticket item, not just for consumers but for retailers seeking the most authentic retail display solutions. Tim Wilkinson visited the market and explains how WBC’s new Prop Shop offers the perfect alternative to traipsing through the cold at 5am in the morning.
