About Us

Antiques, Collectables, Vintage, Retro

ACVR events based in Hampshire were established over 8yrs ago and have been going from strength to strength finding a niche, holding events in market towns across Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey. Jackie Edwards has a wealth of experience instigating and setting up markets and events over the past 25 years in various locations including London. These events and markets are primarily outside and of varying size in historic locations which draw a wide range of people not only interested in the event but also in the historic sites.

To add to the already established Romsey, Ringwood, Bishops Waltham, Alresford, Chichester and Guildford High Street events, Epsom, Farnham and Kingston-upon-Thames were added, and this year a unique location of Shaw House a 16th Century Manor House, in Newbury, Berkshire.
Art and Designer/Makers Markets

New for 2021 stand alone Art and Designer/Makers markets in Epsom, Guildford and Farnham.

All artists/makers will be asked to submit an application form with a description of their work to ensure we can offer a wide range to the general public. Our aim is to offer the public original quality work from the best emerging artistic talent from across the area and beyond.

I will ensure that all work for sale is original so the public can be sure to buy with confidence whether its fine art (contemporary & traditional) ceramics, mixed media, graphics, glass, jewellery, photography, textiles, upholstery, wood carving/furniture, sculpture, illustration, fashion etc., in fact creativity is the key so anything of good quality will be considered so please contact me with your ideas.

These events will be promoted extensively across the regions on social media platforms, flyers and distribution at other markets I organise and we ask that artists and makers share the content, each market will have its own branding.

I have previous experience at running Art markets I instigated and run for 7 years an Art market in Winchester for a third party ( left 7 years ago) . I previously worked for the ‘a space’ arts organisation in Southampton for 14 years as the sponsorship, fundraising and marketing manager, I then become a director and trustee. Prior to this I was part of the management team of the Beatrice Royal Gallery in Eastleigh ( this gallery is now unfortunately closed). I also have over 20 years retail experience.
