Vintage is currently on trend so gone are the days of ‘out with the old and in with the new’ writes Olivia Beaty

Take a trip down memory lane with some of Lancashire’s most respected antique traders – such specialists offer a wide range of magnificent pieces including books, jewellery, pottery and furniture all of which are exhibited in beautiful period buildings.

Add a touch of shabby chic to your home, whether it’s a classic style armchair for your sitting room or a piece of pretty pottery to make your kitchen unique, there are antique experts on hand to answer any queries or discuss any products.

If antiques are your thing and it’s collectables you are seeking, dealers also have thousands of toys, figurines, different styles of art and other extraordinary items on display.

Take a break from treasure hunting and enjoy a bite to eat too as many antique centres have cafes and tea rooms serving delicious homemade fayre. They also often have other attractions including antique architecture and stoneware for gardens as well as lovely country walks nearby. Whatever you are looking for, hunting for antiques and collectables is a great day out!
