Bristol’s best vintage fair will once again take over the Bath Road event space, allowing lovers of pre-loved furnishings to browse to their hearts content.


The Vintage Furniture Flea will take over Paintworks’ Event Space on Sunday 14 April 2024.


Do you need to spruce up your new home with a dash of mid-20th-century charm? Are you looking to deck out a brand-new in-house bar? Or are you just on the hunt for some bargains? If any of this rings true then this flea is the place for you – if you’re really keen then there are even early bird tickets available!


Grab your tickets from the Vintage Furniture Flea website, here.

This immensely popular flea offers the perfect antidote to the trend for expensive replicas, focusing instead on quality and affordability and celebrating the stylish mid-century living from the 50s and beyond. Expect top vintage traders, all offering furniture and homewares without costing the earth.


With traders descending on Bristol from all over the UK, bargain hunters can ready themselves to see the eclectic with chairs, tables and more from giants such as Ercol and G-Plan, barware and kitchenalia, textiles and fabrics, sewing machines, cameras, record players and radios.


If that’s not enough, there will also be smaller, collectable items such as cocktail glasses and other barware, vintage posters and magazines as well as lampshades, mirrors and more – from toys to telephones, ceramics to lights, no box is left unticked.


Tickets are priced at £4 for early birds (entry from 10.30 AM) and £3 for general (entry from 11.30 AM) with kids going free. The event finishes at 4 PM – grab your ticket now from the Vintage Furniture Flea website, here.

The Paintworks is a Bristol creative quarter on the Bath Road, just across the water from St Philips Marsh. Now providing living/working, studio and restaurant space, The Paintworks originally dates back to 1850 when it was a paint and varnish factory.


Today, over 100 small and medium-sized businesses are now based there with public art installations, performances, events and exhibitions all regularly taking place. Find out more from the Paintworks website.
