Where to buy garden antiques
Owing to Covid restrictions, it’s best to look online to find the most up-to-date information on how to access stock from shops and showrooms. Visit antiques-atlas.com and iacf.co.uk to find out when fairs and markets are opening; and at the bottom of the pecking order, take a look at carbootjunction.com for sales near you.
