Recyling the past
Taking every effort to
REDUCE, REUSE & RECYCLE
Antiques and Vintage are Green
Our longstanding New Year's Day fair is one of four major events we host throughout the year at York Racecourse.
Whether you're buying or browsing, seeking an expert appraisal or wanting some home décor inspiration, there's so much to see and experience at these ever-popular events.
You'll find treasures galore from 20th Century Fashion and Jewellery, to Victoriana, Silver, Retro and Furnishings.
Plus, with around 100 traders from all over the UK, including local artists/makers there really is something for everyone, for all homes and all budgets.
Our visitors love the quirks and nuances of these fairs; the juxtaposition of Porcelain and Glass, Homeware and Upholstery, Timepieces and Militaria.
Many choose to make a full day of their visit, enjoying a light brunch from the onsite restaurant before mingling with likeminded visitors in the hunt for their next purchase.
Keeping it Green
We take every effort to reduce, reuse and recycle.
In the last 12 months we have:
stopped issuing paper tickets for our events
stopped issuing disposable parking passes to our traders
limited our use of single use plastics
changed our flyers to 100% recyclable paper made from 50% recycled paper stock
reduced the number of letters we send by post - preferring email over royal mail
encouraged traders to pay by bank transfer rather than cheque
Our commitment is ongoing and we are always looking for additional ways to “keep it green” and welcome any suggestions you may have.
