Exeter’s Vintage Trading Company

Posted by on Nov 26, 2012 in Home & Garden | 9 comments

My absence from Magpie Monday posting and lack of second-hand bargain hunting saddens me deeply – a casualty of working nine to five (though more usually eight to eleven) – cue Dolly:



But I was delighted last Saturday to finally make it to Exeter’s newest vintage shopping venture: the Vintage Trading Company on Marsh Barton Trading Estate. It’s a veritable treasure trove, jam-packed to the ceiling (literally – watch out for the vintage bikes overhead) with antique, vintage and curio goodies. Stuffed badger anyone?



The Vintage Trading Company had 8500 sq ft of space filled with over 50 eclectic stands from different vintage sellers, including our very own Karen from The White Approach. It’s open every day of the week from 10 am, so no excuse not to get down there for a rummage, you never know what you might find.



Check out the Vintage Trading Company’s Facebook page too, to keep up to date with the latest developments and new items for sale.

  1. Dust down the couch – I’m coming down!! x

    • Got a spare room with double bed for you and hubby – do you really think I would put up the Queen of Magpie Monday on a couch? Only the best for you my dear – come on down.

  2. I haven’t been yet! As I can’t drive it’s a bit far to walk….. going to sweet talk pop’s into taking me down, I’m on holiday next week so fingers crossed!! xx

    • Not driving is why it took me so long to get out there too! Hope you can persuade pops :) Have a lovely time off next week – well deserved I’m sure x

  3. Fab post lovely lady. Sorry I missed you. Busy, busy time of year with vintage fairs at the moment. Hope my space didn’t look too bare and unloved. Let me know when the gorgeous Lizzie pays a visit, really would love to get together for a drink or a meal xxx

    • Sorry I missed you too Karen, but lovely to see your stall – not bare and unloved at all. We’ll have to lure that Liz down somehow, we need a good get together! Take care and don’t work too hard (easier said than done I know) x

  4. I really would love to go, it looks fab. Maybe one day, we can fix a trip there, next time we are in Devon xx

  5. I like the new design of your blog and it’s nice to hear from you again.
