Cape Town's premier Antiques and Collectables Market - 

because it really is!


The Alphen Antiques and Collectables Fair at Alphen Centre in Constantia, Cape Town

The Alphen Market is Cape Town's premier Antiques and Collectables Market.


There are many regular satisfied dealers, investors, collectors, fashionistas, decor people and just ordinary folk who buy from the market every month.


Apart from selling my own stock, I sell on consignment for a variety of distinguished clients - on the basis of strict confidentiality.


For some clients I have sold up to R50 000 worth of items in one day.....



There are a variety of dealers selling on the market, all with their own particular speciality - certainly enough to accomodate any number of clients.


The Alphen Antiques and Collectables Fair takes place at the Alphen Centre - opposite Constantia Village, normally on the second and fourth Sunday of every month (unless otherwise advertised).
The Fair takes place between 10am and 4pm.


A variety of items -- including jewellery, watches, coins, medals, glass, ceramics, porcelain, silver, toys, books, militaria, paintings and small furnishings etc -- will be on sale.
Entry is free, there is ample parking and refreshments are available.
If you have antique/collectable items that you would like to dispose of, feel free to contact me.


New dealers welcome.

Antiques and me

In a way I have been involved with antiques just about my whole life. As a child I was fascinated with them - the mystery, the quality and the beauty of each object or item always captivated me.


Of course later on I became an avid collector. I never specialised in any one area because I found everything that was truly antique to be wonderful.


Circumstances in life eventually led me to become a dealer, but I have never lost that fascination which I experienced as a small boy, when finding a rare, unusual or unique item.


I guess that is my area: finding the truly unusual and sometimes unique antique or collectable. This certainly is an interesting field of work - after more than 30 passionate years there is always something new to learn or a surprising find at the next junk shop around the corner.


I admit it: I am a true and utter addict!
