A NEW opportunity for antique fanatics to buy and sell trade is coming to New Milton.

A new emporium at Redcliffe Garden Centre will be opening this summer. 

The new selling space will feature a capacity for more than 200 stalls.

The emporium will also feature the stores on its social media to boost sales for sellers.

Owner Jack Warman said: “It's a pretty large space. You can have more than 200 holders. People rent bookcases and massive unit spaces.

“It's mainly going to be used for people selling vintage products, antiques, collectibles, and crafts.

“We’ve had a lot of high interest already so fingers crossed we should be a success.”

“I buy and sell architectural antiques from France, so I import all sorts.

“So, when this opportunity came up, it sounded perfect.

“There's a lot of possible trade between Southampton, Christchurch, Bournemouth but there isn’t any in the new forest area.

“We’ve also got the garden centre and the busy tearoom.

“So, it makes Redcliffe more of a destination and will bring up the popularity of the area. “

The new space will be open from 10am to 4pm.

The emporium is expected to throw open its doors to the public on July 1.
