Celebrating 10 Golden Years
Back in August 2012, we cautiously opened a new enterprise - ANTIQUES BAZAAR! This was a completely fresh and original concept for Crewkerne - a large and airy warehouse offering great space for individual businesses to trade from - with a theme on ANTIQUES, VINTAGE, RETRO! We were "full" when we opened, and remain "full" to this day. We marked out around 70 individual units, and added around 20 cabinets. This proved to be a very popular formula, with traders from Bournemouth, Dorchester, Bridport, and more locally here in Crewkerne, Chard and Martock all joining our happy band of traders. Then we were approached by specialist dealers in antiques prints, modern art, jewellery and Turkish pots......... the scene was set!
Over the following 10 years Antiques Bazaar has matured. Successful traders have taken more space; we have opened a terrific plant centre adjacent to the front door. Post-Covid we now have a catering trailer "Planet of The Crepes" selling freshly cooked crepes, breakfast rolls, teas,coffees and soft drinks here on site.
So our 10th Anniversary is a real MILESTONE and we hope you will pop in for a chat, some birthday cake and even a glass of "fizz" over our Anniversary weekend Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August
