What is the most sustainable way to shop?

iacf antiques fairs are the most sustainable way to shop for clothing, gifts, home interior, shop stock and interior, restaurant interior and more. You can get the most ethically conscious items to suit all your environmentally friendly needs. Antique furniture doesn’t only come with unique styles that you can’t find in modern furniture, it also helps save the environment by reducing carbon footprint and by reducing the amount of mass made items that only last a few years and get thrown into the landfill.

When it comes to vintage fashion, there is no better way to reduce fast fashion and reduce the support that sweatshops receive from big brands than to shop at iacf antiques fairs. Our antiques fairs provide you with high quality vintage clothing from small business who have sourced it ethically and socially consciously.
