An antiques and collectors’ street market in one of the UK’s wealthiest cities has expanded from just 15 stalls to 80 in three years and is still growing.
Held monthly on a Sunday in Winchester's
High Street and Middlebrook Street, the next is on Sunday, August
Organiser Jackie Edwards, of street market
operators SMT Management, has successfully trialled two 60-stall
quarterly markets in Bishop's Waltham, just eight miles away and
now has her sights set on an even bigger venue as Southampton city
"The market in Winchester, which brings new
audiences to the centre, has a mix of traders and enthusiastic
collectors selling across the board including furniture, linens and
textiles, books and retro," says Jackie.
