Le Fleaman

If you’re looking for a antique shopping daytrip over the next few weeks then head down to Arundel in West Sussex. And once you have toured the medieval castle, home to the Duke of Norfolk…

And wandered up the aisle of the magnificent cathedral…

Head along the high street to the most special antiques shop in town – Spencer Swaffer Antiques…

Spencer Swaffer is something of a phenomenon within the trade, dealing in antiques in Arundel for 40 years and still has to be the busiest trader in the business, with his stock constantly changing from week to week. For years he made weekly trips to the Paris flea markets, becoming so well known there that he was renamed Le Fleaman. Every piece is unique and the choice is outstanding, if something catches your eye, trust your instinct and buy it before someone else does!

Often, there is a humorous touch to his stock, but always stylish and effortlessly glamorous…

It is the Spencer Swaffer look that has made him one of the most celebrated dealers in the world of decorative antiques.

This is no lazy country antique shop and an almost compulsory port of call on your day trip to the town, as is the cream tea afterwards…another essential in the town of Arundel!
