Antique Village @oldschool_event is normally based at the Old School Hall in East Farleigh, Maidstone where they hold regular Antiques markets in the local community. This year at the Show, Old School events will be running the wonderfully nostalgic Antique and Vintage Village. The Antique Village in the John Hendry Pavilion, will showcase everything ‘not new’! Expect a glorious miscellany of high-end antiques, fine jewellery, up-cycled, preloved , shabby chic, collectible, steampunk and curious items. In the area, to add to the vintage atmosphere they will be creating, a retro ‘chill area’, old-school table games, speedy crafts and sensational live entertainment for people to watch and get involved in.
Visitors to the area can watch upholstery and re-caning demonstrations as they walk around to the sound of a dainty Challen upright piano playing in the background.
The Antique and Vintage Village will have over 70 different antique and entertainment stalls giving everyone the opportunity to get their hands on antique and vintage goods as well as take part in various different entertainment events. The antique stalls in the area specialise in anything from glassware to jewellery, oriental pieces to nineteenth-century pieces, with some dealers offering a bit of anything and everything. There will also be some more unusual items available to purchase such as taxidermy, industrial lighting marvels, vintage gentlemen’s grooming items and beard oils!
