The Trinket Box

author: Louise Weir - 06 December 2018

Louise Weir has been extensively trawling the country’s auction houses and major fairs, buying and selling as an Antique Dealer for the past thirty years. Carrying on the well-established family business, now in its third generation, she is proud to play her part in a profession with such an interesting history.

You might recognise her from this or perhaps even from her time spent as a former Antique Expert on TVs ‘Bargain Hunt’. On screen she could be found guiding contestants in an effort to land them the very best deals; now she brings that same know-how, approachability and eye for a bargain to the Newport Indoor Market with her newly opened vintage stall ‘The Trinket Box’.

Here she sells Antiques & Collectables, ranging from vintage jewellery and glass, to silver finery and brass, with a collection of small items of furniture. Why not come along and see for yourself? Whether you are after the traditional or exotic, the Trinket Box offers premium curios for surprisingly affordable prices.

“I have lived in and around Newport for the last 30 years, I even had a stall in the Antique Centre in the Ballroom above the Indoor market many moons ago! It’s brilliant to be back. The Indoor Market has a lot of history and it’s wonderful to be working alongside such brilliant independent stallholders”
