Everything old is new

26 July, 2017

There’s no doubt about it. Art deco trends are here to stay, and the beauty of antique, one-of-a-kind pieces is just one reason they’re so popular. Portobello Road in August, on the 13th, is coming up fast, so if browsing collections of distinctive pieces is your thing, then you’re in luck.

What exactly might you be able to find at Portobello Road, you ask? The real question is… what can’t you find? From antique jewellery, to china, art glass, restored pieces and typewriters – Portobello Road is a collector’s dream. So, say goodbye to the last of winter with a day out fossicking through an eclectic mix of quirky and interesting treasures on this, our last Portobello Road event for 2017.
