About this Event
Never been to Ally Pally Antiques Fair? Find out what you’re missing…
Originally opened in 1873, Alexandra Palace was always intended to be ‘The Palace of the People.’ Nicknamed ‘Ally Pally’ – supposedly by Gracie Fields – the venue has been home to the regular and extremely popular Antiques and Collectors Fair for several years.
Underneath the beautiful, round, blue and red stained-glass ‘Rose’ Window, you will usually find a wonderful antique toy stall; undoubtedly unlocking childhood memories in many visitors. Jewellery stalls can be found in abundance, with items to suit every pocket, and pieces from every era – from ancient Roman rings, through the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, right up to very modern items.
Directly beneath the pipe organ is where you will also find the iacf information desk, and alongside that the free expert evaluation table, manned by TV’s James Lewis from Bamfords Auctioneers.
Held four times a year, the fair regularly attracts over 300 quality antiques dealers from around the UK, and the striking setting makes this a perfect hunting ground for beautiful collectors’ pieces, jewellery, furniture and much more.
There is also a whole section dedicated to vintage and retro style. In this area, mostly covering the post-war period, you can find genuine vintage clothing and jewellery along with stylish items for your home, and you will often see stallholders and visitors dressed in vintage and period clothes mingling with the other buyers.
