Are you a Vintage Trader?
We are always looking for the best quality vintage traders to join us at our upcoming events. Each vintage event brand is very different and is looking for a specific kind of vintage trader. Please read the requirements below and click to book for our 2019 shows
Festival of Vintage
27th & 28th April
The Festival has been running since 2011 and we are very proud to say that many of our trade exhibitors have been with us from the very beginning.
The event has evolved over the years and grown into two large grandstand buildings over 4 floors at York Racecourse.
Which means all trading is under cover in light, bright buildings. The Festival of Vintage has a great reputation for selecting and showcasing the UK's best vintage dealers! With strict datelines imposed the Festival of Vintage ensures our visitors see amazing original vintage items in our Vintage Arcade offering some of the very best vintage shopping in the UK. We do welcome a limited number of those selling Top Quality Reproduction and this is in a special dedicated area of the Festival within the Nostalgia Hall.
Layout of Exhibitors
To help our visitors shop wisely (they really love to shop) and find what they are looking for, we separate original vintage (1920's-1960's only) in a different area from Vintage Inspired/Repro Brands and we also have a small Vintage Craft Section-so our visitors know exactly what they are buying.
We target the right customers, who are enthusiasts and into the vintage scene, they know what they are looking for and know that the Festival of Vintage offers a quality shopping experience. Footfall over the weekend is up to 5,000 people. With many visiting year on year and estimate spend per head is high!

We are currently booking for our Vintage Home Spring Shows
Since our Vintage Home Shows started back in 2012, we have been lucky enough to have lots of regular exhibitors who sell very well. The event was created to be a hub for buyers in search of items from the 1950's-1970's under one roof. Prices range from the average to high end, as you never know who might visit and what they are looking for. In the past we have attracted the attention of Interior Designers as well as celebrities such a Paloma Faith & TV stars
What we look for from our exhibitors
We love to have knowledgeable exhibitors; who have a passion for what they are selling at our shows.

Mainly from the 1950's-1970's but we are also looking for classics of the 20th century with style!
