Waiting for Video...

FANS of bygone eras arrived in their droves to this year’s first Vintage and Very Nice Market Bazaar of the year in Chichester.

The quirky market, held in the Assembly Rooms on Saturday (February 1), showcased antiques and trinkets which would catch the eye of any vintage fan.

The market brings together a variety of different stalls, from stylish and retro clothes, to toys and cakes.

Arts and crafters were selling homemade jewellery and gifts for Valentine’s Day.

It has been two years since Daryl Bowen opened the Vintage and Very Nice Market Bazaar.

“I was fed up with travelling all over to trade,” he said

“I started out selling home and menswear, so I decided to start one within walking distance of where I live.”

“From the 15 traders, it has grown so much over the past two years, and being recognised as an event that BBC Homes and Antiques magazine has chosen to report on, shows we are on the Vintage map.

“Supporting more than 28 local small traders and serving more than 200 cups of tea and coffee in the pop-up tearoom, we had more than 2,000 visitors this weekend, including our many local regular local visitors as well as people who come from all over, including London and Brighton.”

The next vintage market is on Saturday, March 1, from 10am-5pm, at the Assembly Rooms.
