I am lost between tense coherence and general meaning...
I was looking for a "that brings" end...

My default choice is B

Question for the gurus.

a) 'anitque things' sounds better and looks concise as compared to 'things antique'.How do we decide what to use here.

b) Please explain how u decided for using 'have' vs 'has'

c) I think 'bringing back' needs to be used here.

B it is with proper verb tense agreement
A and D "have" does not agree with "fascination"
C and E "bring" does not agree with "market"
"All things antique" is proper english although not commonly heard of.

B.

To add to CEO's voice,
1. "all things antique" just means "all things that are antique". It is supposed to give a subtle difference in meaning from "antique things"
2. On the verb, simply put - Market had grown.... Market is bringing...
