Pop Up Vintage Fairs London was founded by fashion enthusiast Maxine Stonehill in 2011 and was voted ‘Best London Vintage Fair’ for three consecutive years in the Vintage Guide to London Awards. They have since won a place in the hearts of London’s vintage hunters. ‘Pop Up’ is an appropriate name, as the fairs takes place about once a month at a number of grand venues across the city including Wilton’s Music Hall, St Stephens Hampstead, Walthamstow Assembly Hall and Alexandra Palace.
The great thing about the Alexandra Palace event is that it runs alongside a large antiques and collectables fair in the vast Great Hall. There’s a different vibe to the two fairs with the fashionable Pop Up crowd rubbing shoulders with antique enthusiasts looking for anything from train memorabilia to antique clocks. Of course there’s some cross over with Pop Up Vintage Fairs’ traders selling everything from vintage fashion to mid-century retro homeware so there is something for everyone to enjoy!
Whatever Pop Up event you chose, you’re sure to have a great time and find some of the best vintage traders and the kind of glamorous customers that seem to be a walking advertisement for the retro lifestyle. Take a look at their website to find out about forthcoming events.
