Alfies Antique Market

So I stumbled across Alfies Antique Market while I was researching a shop that sold vintage collectables and antiques and just like that Ta Da Alfies Antique Markets pops up. When I visited the store I was amazed by the amount of collectable vintage pieces, furniture and jewellery I found. I spent about 2 hours on my first visit and walked out of there feeling that I had to spend another 2 hours to see everything there. One of my favourite stops was Persiflage that had an extensive collection of hats, masks, period clothes, lace, buttons and linens. I loved the drawers filled with buttons, old photographs, scarves and cases filled with vintage hats.

If you are after a vintage hair and make up salon then a visit to Alfies Antique Market will do! Nina's Hair Parlour is the UK's first and only exclusive specialist in vintage retro hair and make up.

Francesca Martire and Michael Ahose love traveling all over the world searching for desirable, interesting things, all with a story to tell and find it a thrill gathering them together in their showroom. The interiors and settings create a unique blend where items of different periods magically co-exist in harmony and style, delivering a vision with edge and academic knowledge. I was fascinated by the amount of intricate lighting they had on offer...
