The stunning setting of Paxton House, just over the border in Scotland is the setting for a three-day antiques extravaganza

Whether you’re a serious antiques collector, are looking for some unique decorative pieces for your home or just enjoy browsing vintage items and picking up unusual objects then you won’t want to miss this event.

The antiques and decorative fair takes place between Friday June 14 and Sunday June 16, from 10am to 5pm at the stunning Paxton House, in Berwick-upon-Tweed (admission £5).

Glam Racket Events Ltd., in partnership with Paxton House, have organised this premier antiques fair, which will be held in the grounds of the beautiful, Grade 1 listed, house.

Glam Racket was set up in 2023 by a group of four dealers, to promote antique fairs in, and around the Borders area, to encourage fairs with a wonderful, enjoyable atmosphere.

The organisers said: “The Glamracket name comes from a dear friend of the group, Davey Wright, who died much too young, it was his business name, now we honour him by carrying the name on.”
