The Charing Cross Collectors’ Market is sponsoring an event to encourage young collectors in the fields of Coins, Stamps and Postcards.
Our aim is to show you a side of the business which allows you to develop your hobby into something more.
We are giving you the opportunity to ‘be a dealer for the day’ by providing table space in our Saturday market during the month of August. Bring your duplicates, albums, coins and postcards and you will benefit from advice on value, condition and pitfalls.
Each table is 1.8m x 0.70m and will be at a nominal rent discounted by 85% of £5 for the day.
One or more of your friends can share the table and we have various trade catalogues and magazines to use as reference material. You can take up this offer on one or more of the Saturdays in August.
You will experience the many different characters who regularly attend the market, some of whom are among the foremost dealers in the trade. Your fellow stall holders are happy to ‘show you how it’s done’ and give you tips and ideas to develop your hobby further.
To find out more about this opportunity to ‘dip your toe in the water’ call 01483 283829/07540 144433 or email email@example.com
Please note – under 16 year olds must be accompanied by an adult.
Welcome to Charing Cross Market! We are a family run international market with over 45 years’ of passionate experience in running a weekly fair specialising in numismatics, stamps, postcards and the antiquities field. As you will see from our website, our exhibitors offer a wide range of wares from the ancient times to later days, with some exhibitors offering specialist sections focusing on Ancient and ship wreck coins.
Here you will meet keen collectors of anything ancient and historical, dealing with items which have been passed down through the history and who are very keen to share their passion with likeminded enthusiasts.
April hails the exciting official handing over of the family-run market from Rodney Bolwell to his daughter, Bridget Pettecrew. For over 40 years Rodney has successfully run this historic market and, now in his early eighties has decided to hand over the reins to Bridget.
Whilst this vibrant weekly event is well known in the coin, stamp and postcard fraternity, in the weeks and months to come Bridget is looking forward to accepting the challenge of expanding the awareness of the market within these and other fields of collectables, beginning with the design and implementation of the new website!
Future events that are planned are:
- Themed Saturdays featuring specific parts of the world for stamps and coins
- ‘Junior month’ in August where fledgling collectors/dealers up to the ages of 17 can try their hand at exhibiting for special rates!
