That’s the day this new London monthly market launches at The Workshop, an arts events space on the Albert Embankment.

The trike will be for sale at Vintage Vauxhall for £3750 with architectural salvage dealer Retrouvius.

Adam Hills, director of the firm in Kensal Green, north-west London, says: “We will be filling the bike’s box with design letters, lighting, textiles, stools, ironmongery, butterflies in boxes, and so on, and selling these at prices from £50 to £200.”

Plenty of contemporary arts buzz can be detected in the Vauxhall area (see Dealers’ Diary, ATG No 2280), including Damien Hirst’s six-room Newport Gallery and the contemporary arts space that is the Beaconsfield Art Gallery.

Meanwhile, Counter is London’s longest restaurant, housed in a 200-foot long arch.

Vintage Vauxhall is sister event to the BathVA – the Vintage & Decorative Antiques Market. It is the brainchild of Naomi Knight, who runs that monthly Bath fair.
