Wakefield Antiques, The Ridings

Wakefield Antiques, The Ridings is the hot-spot space for locals of Wakefield to deal, create and collect products, craft and heirlooms. It’s a hub, and visitors, regular and new alike, flock to find the best of the best when it comes to vintage homeware. It’s a spacious, oak-wood type of space, with tables and other vintage furniture amassed centrally, and daintier, less bulky antiques lining the edges. It’s set-up for browsing, with ample room to walk round at leisure and take stock of what’s on offer, which you’ll need to do with each visit, if you go regularly, as stock here moves fast, and swift deals are done that leave both seller and customer elated.

Given the luxurious nature of the items gathered, and the care and attentiveness with which they have been looked after or restored, prices can err on the more expensive side, though smaller items and knick-knacks won’t always set you back too much. You can pick up a pocketable watch, perhaps, or a silver trinket, to attach to an old chain and wear to accessorise, or something else equally as small but charming. There’s endless scope to what’s on offer, and the joy of perusing it all is in having the unexpected turn up and become a thing you love instantly.

Set in The Ridings, which is a wider, contemporary shopping mall, combining new and old in one go has never been easier. Modern-day shops, of the kind you’d expect to find in most indoor shopping centres, line the aisles, proffering a complete u-turn from what the connected Wakefield Antiques stocks and hails. It’s open everyday, though it does close slightly earlier on a Sunday, making it the ideal go-to to have on your radar for when a good browse, and maybe a bit of heckling, takes your fancy. Take your wallet, and take your eye for the good stuff, too.
