There’s a new vintage market in town.

The vision of Louisa Froggatt, Upmarket boutique fair has recently opened in the heart of the city.

Louisa, who has worked in retail management for 25 years, found a new venue at the Circle, Rockingham Lane, two years after she introduced the market in Sheffield University.

Explaining what makes her market different to others, she said: “It isn’t just a vintage market. The Upmarket has everything – vintage clothing, handcrafted items, home produce, art and design, retro homeware, bric a brac, beauty products, books and vinyl records – at one event.

“It’s all about independent traders, who love what they do, and I love showcasing them. There are so many talented independents.

The third Upmarket is to be held at the Circle on May 30 from 11am until 4.30pm. Entry is free.

The first event, on March 28, attracted more than 300 visitors and was opened by the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Peter Rippon.
