Antique and collectable hunters will be in their element at Baytree Garden Centre in Weston this weekend (February 17 and 18).

For the second year running, the centre is hosting an antiques fair and the turnout already looks even better than last year’s.

At the time of writing, 45 stalls had been confirmed and more were being added, compared to last year’s 23.

Iain Anderson, who runs 3 Pieces of Eight Antiques shop at the centre, is one of the organisers.

He set up his shop following a love of visiting car boot sales with his grandmother as a child.

Iain said: “We expect people to come from all over the country to the event.

“There are people coming from Stamford, Horncastle, York, even Scotland.

“I’m estimating around 2,000 plus people attending.”

Iain goes above and beyond by calling the sellers in advance and making sure that no two stalls show the same products.

Expect to find hidden delights from 1950s kitchen appliances to antique furniture, jewellery, militaria, coins, vintage toys and more.

The event is at Baytree Garden Centre on both Saturday (9am-5pm) and Sunday (10am-4pm) with free entry on both days.
