Kemptown Trading Post is an eclectic and bohemian market where you can find a large variety of collectibles, antiques and furniture. Boasting a large choice of vintage clothing and accessories, as well as second hand designer clothing and European imports coming in all shapes and sizes, there’s sure to be something for everyone! 

Sharing the space with the newly renovated ‘Cup of Joe’ Café, it is the perfect place to peruse the stalls whilst enjoying a coffee.  With a plethora of stalls and cabinets to peruse, you will no doubt find that last minute birthday present, stunning party dress, ornament for the house or just something unusual that you wouldn’t find elsewhere.


The Kemptown Trading Post was created by Andrea Keenan back in 2010. Andrea came up with the idea of having a flea market with a cafe in the middle.  In May 2015, Hervé Guyat, owner of the New Steine Hotel & Bistro and Georges his partner, who have been Kemptown residents and business owners for over 20 years, decided to take over the Kemptown Trading Post and Café. They saw it as the perfect opportunity for them to be under the same roof, but still doing their own thing.

Hervé wanted to go back to his roots, having previously worked for Valentino in the eighties, amongst other labels in London’s prestigious Bond and Sloane Street.  Eager to use his creative side, starting with a soft refurbishment of the decor and upgrade of some of the stalls, including vintage clothing and second hand designer clothes and accessories such as sun glasses, designer bags and shoes, all at very reasonable prices. 

“Brighton and thriving Kemptown is the perfect place to express oneself in the way we dress as can be seen in the eclectic and colourful characters you see around. It reminds me of my time in London and has brought the fashion back into my life. I am really looking forward to making Kemptown Trading Post a fabulous place packed with exciting and unusual finds.”

Of course Herve has kept the collectables and antiques as it contributes a very big part of this unusual concept. You can find quirky objects, comfy chairs and the odd piece of furniture. It is a must visit as you are bound to let yourself be tempted by something for your home or to wear to that amazing party.
