NEW NOVEMBER DATE FOR THE CARMARTHEN ANTIQUES & FLEA MARKET
A new date has been added to this years’ schedule of Carmarthen Antiques and Flea Market events. Because of ‘popular demand’ the organisers will hold an additional fair on Sunday November the 27th, perfectly timed for some Christmas shopping!
With around 200 stands inside and out filled with quality antique furniture, ceramics, art and vintage jewellery it’s THE place to come if you’re looking for a gift that will stand out amongst the usual socks and scarves found under the Christmas tree.
From typewriters to tea sets and annuals to agricultural artefacts you’ll find something for everyone without the stresses and strains of the high-
Two original photographs of Saundersfoot dating from1895 would make a great gift for someone with childhood memories of summers in Pembrokeshire. The black and white images could be framed to look really special.
It is business as usual for the Carmarthen Antiques & Flea Markets
A parcel of land has been sold (as reported in recent local newspapers) but this will have no effect on the area used for shows and exhibitions. Other parts of the showground are also on the market and may sell in due course, but the long-

The Showground Postcode is SA33 5DR, but take care, your sat nav will take you to the farm across the main road, so look out for signs to the Showground when you get to within a mile of us.
We’ve got Ann’s Christmas present all wrapped up! A very rare 19th century child’s mug with the words ‘A Present for Ann’ would make the perfect gift if you know the right person.
Vintage costume jewellery will be amongst the ‘best buys’ with a huge selection of pieces available to buy for just a couple of pounds each. Necklaces, earrings and broaches make a lovely gift when put in a pretty box, but have you thought about using them to decorate your Christmas tree? Great value pieces of vintage silver will also make a striking addition to your Christmas Day table.
Look out too for the ladies of Carmarthenshire’s fundraising team for Macmillan Cancer Support and their teddy bear stand. They’ll be selling a huge number of collectable bears including two very special commemorative bears, one for the Cardiff Rugby World Cup and another for the Manchester Commonwealth Games.
As one of the biggest events of its kind in Wales the Carmarthen Antiques and Flea Market really is a great way to spend a few hours. As well as plenty of agricultural items you’ll find many rare and unusual decorative pieces, it’s also the place to shop for military items, toys and ceramics as well as vintage clothes.
