But, what and where is Alfies Antique Market?
On a quiet street in Marylebone stands a glorious building adorned with an Egyptian inspired art deco façade. The façade gives only a hint at the treasures that are held within. The building is Alfies Antiques; the iconic antique market loved by top stylists and A-listers a like (Kate Moss and Robert de Niro are regulars) opened its doors in 1976.
A project of love and dedication by owner Bennie Gray, has seen the antique market grow in size over the years and provide a buzz of thriving shops owners with a single location.
If you make it passed the dazzling array of jewellers on the ground floor, and wind your way up the grand stair case to the first floor you will find Diplomat Treasures International, an eclectic selection of art and works of art from around the world. Including an impressive collection of contemporary art by Pure Evil.
Think Parisian flea market with a heavy dose of British cool. Whether it’s antiques, vintage fashion or 20th century art & design Alfies is a treasure trove for all.
