This site provides useful information about the antique and retro scene in the North of England.

Up to date the main areas covered are:-  Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Lancashire, Derbyshire and Cheshire.

We aim to add new information, on a regular basis, to build a valuable resource, for local people and visitors to the area alike.

The North of England has a wealth of antique and retro shops, centres and warehouses to choose from, with inventory to suit collectors, private individuals, decorators and trade buyers alike.

Many antique, retro and collectable pieces can be found in the shops, centres and warehouses listed, including: antique, retro, mid century, painted and shabby chic furniture, pottery and porcelain, glass, metal-wares, vintage luggage, textiles, books, ephemera, vintage toys and all manner of collectables. Some of the businesses offer items which can be purchased online, others, especially the larger warehouses, are able to pack and ship containers worldwide.The businesses listed cater for all tastes and pockets, with items ranging in price from a few pounds to thousands.

Initially the listings will contain only basic information, but our intention is to personally visit as many antique and retro, shops, warehouses, centres, auctions, markets and fairs in Northern England as we can, and then give more detailed information on these venues.

Listings contain:  contact information, addresses, opening times (if known), links to websites and the type of stock held (together with photographs when possible).

Each page has a map showing the location of businesses in the area covered by that page.

Please use the navigation above to see other sections of the site.

Upcoming antique and retro fairs listings are on the “Antique Fairs Diary” page.

*Please note that businesses do close, change opening days and times, or relocate from time to time, therefore a phone call is advisable prior to visiting if you are travelling  any distance.*
