Budget Suffolk Antiques Trail

If, like us, you love the antiques in Suffolk but just can't afford Long Melford and the high end shop prices, then here is the Antiques Trail for you. We found a series of budget places where a treasure can always be found for a pretty good price.

The Theatre Antiques Centre
10 Church St, Woodbridge IP13 9BH‎ - 01728 621 069‎

(A great warehouse of affordable and really nice things. One of our one-stop recommendations if you want to get a lot in one place)

The St, Peasenhall, Saxmundham, Suffolk IP17 2HJ, UK‎

(A great and quirky place. He specialises in traditional carpet furniture. You really have to see it to understand how amazing this place is. It is also connected to the community second hand shop next door)

Yoxford Antiques Centre
United Kingdom‎ - 01728 668 844‎
(A big warehouse where each vendor brings in their things. We love it. It is also a great one-stop to get a lot of things)

Snape Maltings Antiques
Saxmundham, Suffolk IP17 1SP‎ - 01728 688 303‎

(Specializing in smaller things. A huge array of silverware and an amazing collection of vintage wedding dresses)

Leiston Trading Post

17 High Street, Leiston Suffolk, IP16 4EL
(a great shop that seems to go on forever and is crammed with furniture and little odds and ends)

Thorpeness Emporium
Alderburgh Road, Thorpeness, Suffolk
United Kingdom‎ - 01728 454 639‎

(a very pretty destination and very inexpensive. Everything from knick knacks to clothes and all for bargain basement prices)

Vintage Forty-Six Antiques
46 High Street, Wickham Market, Suffolk IP13 0QS‎ - 01728 746642‎

(a small shop linked to a really nice cafe. The shop has such a high turnover of furniture and for good prices that we go each time we are in Suffolk)

Marlesford Mill 
marlesford, suffolk, ip13 0ag
(Another amazing all one-stop shop. Very reasonable prices and a million treasures to discover)

Monty's Country Pine 

The Old Post Office, Hacheston IP13 0DR, UK‎
(A little gem we found just driving around the area. Mostly antique pine furniture, but some great and extremely reasonable items such as grandfather clocks and wooden kitchen chairs)

Bed Bazaar
The Old Railway Station, Station Road, Framlingham, Suffolk IP13 9EE‎ - 01728 723756‎

(This one is not too cheap, but absolutely amazing to visit for bed ideas. And since you are in the area, why not?)

Woodbridge Antiques Centre
7 Quay Street, Woodbridge, Suffolk IP12 1BX‎ - 01394 387210‎

(We actually never went to this one, but somehow it got in on our list. So this one is still a mystery)

Bygones Of Needham Market
110A High Street, Needham Market, Ipswich IP6 8DW‎ - 01449 726 075‎

(This one is on our drive home. Amazing gems like old telephones and gramaphones)
