London, United Kingdom

Hall 6 is a vast antique centre, full of stalls owned by independent dealers, so there is no consistency in pricing or authenticity. It is particularly good for furniture, second-hand as well as antique (looking). A lot was reproduction, but I saw some wonderful Art Deco pieces from American colonial times. Also Chinese porcelain (usually fashionably described as from a wreck), tribal pieces (mostly large wooden carvings), small metalware and some jewellery. If something large takes your fancy, there is a small post office for packing and shipping internationally within the complex. Many prices are incredibly low – labour and natural hardwoods are both extremely cheap.
