Something that is repeated every year at the fair is that a distinct theme is set. This year, the theme is: that special thing for the woman who has everything.
Ulla Rasmussen from Antique Et Cetera, Et Cetera, who is one of the new exhibitors, thinks that this year’s theme fits very well with her stand. She has a large selection of bags, jewelry, hand embroidered linen, scarves and much more from well-known brands such as Georg Jensen, Christian Dior and others. In relation to this year’s theme, Ulla has chosen to mark some delicious vintage scarves from Hermes with the small Danish flags, which at all the stands will highlight the exhibitors’ offers to the woman who has everything.
Lise Jeppesen, who has participated at the antique fair for 42 years and is only surpassed by the fair’s organizer, Carl Sørensen, is also excited about this year’s theme. At the fair you can visit Lise’s “working stand”, where she spins yarn on her spinning wheel and helps preserving an old craft. On the stand you can find a large selection of woven cloths, shawls, scarves and delicious lambskins from Lisa’s Gothlandic sheep.
This is just a small selection of all the things you can find at the fair.
Carl Sørensen and his family, who have been organizing the fair for 44 years, look forward to welcoming the audience. “The antique fair has between 4,000 and 5,000 visitors coming from all over Denmark as well as Norway, Sweden and Germany. We experience that the visitors consist of approx. 50% Danes and 50% tourists. Many of them are planning their holidays to coincide with the fair, which of course we are very happy about. At the same time, we have experienced an incredible amount of support from the local area throughout the years”, says Carl Sørensen.
Carl also emphasizes that although it is the woman who is the focus of this year’s theme, he hopes that they will bring their men and family to the fair as well.
