Eat Sleep Antiques is an exciting online marketplace brought to you by the team at Love Fairs. Since 2015, we have been introducing buyers and dealers at our hugely popular and successful antiques and vintage fairs at Lingfield Park Racecourse, Brighton Racecourse and the Antiques and Vintage Village at the Kent County Show. As a digital version of our fairs, we are continuing to introduce buyers to our dealers 365 days a year. Speaking directly to the dealers and cutting out any middle men, it ensures they can offer you the best prices whilst maintaining the personal interaction and customer service of a shop or a fair.
Our dealers are already known to us or have been approved by us, so you can interact with them and buy with confidence.
Eat Sleep Antiques is an online marketplace that allows selected antique, vintage and retro dealers list their fantastic stock - all under one digital roof. You deal directly with each dealer meaning you get the best price and most unusual items. We are like an online antiques and vintage fair, but open 24 hours a day!

Yes, we encourage you to do so! It's easy to contact any of our dealers by either sending them a message or giving them a call, by using the buttons on any of the item pages.
Simply contact the dealer by using one of the buttons on the item page and discuss the method of payment and any delivery costs directly with the dealer. They will be delighted to answer any questions you have about the items they have for sale.
Each dealer will have their own payment preference; some will take PayPal payments (you will see a PayPal button on that item page), some will prefer bank transfers or cheques and some will prefer cash on collection (if you decide you wish to collect the item). When buying using the PayPal button, please make sure you have agreed the delivery costs with the dealer first.
Each dealer offers different options in terms of items, whether that is that the item is shipped to you or that you collect the item in person. This information is clearly shown on all item pages in the 'Product Details' box.
Some do and some do not - this can be different for each item. This information is clearly shown on all item pages in the 'Product Details' box.
