sheffield’s new antiques quarter is to host its first Spring Market.

The quarter - a collection of vintage, retro and antique shops in and around Broadfield Road, Heeley - is marking National Antiques Week with the event.

Shops will be highlighting their environmentally-friendly credentials by rolling out green carpets and flags designed by local gallery Art@TheVault.

Offers of recycled, re-used and reclaimed items will also be available for shoppers.

The event will culminate in more than 30 stallholders gathering on Clyde Road, off Broadfield Road, for a market on Sunday, April 28.

Hendrika Stephens, owner of the Corner Gallery and chair of a group leading the development key campaigner for the antiques quarter, said business leaders hoped it could be the first of many regular market events at the antiques quarter.

She added: “National Antiques Week runs from April 22 to April 28 and in Sheffield we will be highlighting the greener side of the quarter.

“We shall be celebrating in style with all the centres and shops flying green flags and rolling out green carpets to highlight all that’s green about local retail.

“We are using National Antiques Week to highlight the green, local aspects of the quarter as well as supporting and taking pride in Sheffield.”

The Spring Market starts at 11am on Sunday, April 28, and stalls will sell retro, vintage, arts, antiques, salvage and militaria items.

Special Sheffield Antiques Quarter fairtrade bags will be available, and a loyalty card is also to be launched.
