The original A is good to me.
All things antique is the way I would say it anyways.
Then the subject seems to agree with the verbs.

(B) things antique has grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that is bringing

I'd say B as it is the market (singular) that has grown.

Are you sure that is the only difference between B and C? Is there a difference between "things antique" as in B and "things that are antiques" as in C?

I always look for subject verb agreement first and since w/ POE, B stand out as the most correct option to me. for choice C, besides the verb agreement problem, it does sound wordy and awkward

Well I think "that" in B and E refers to furniture and fixtures. Now I think furniture and fixtures is a plural and needs a plural noun and so bring is appropriate here. (Is furniture and fixtures plural for "s" with fixture and is furniture and fixtures a compound noun. If the answer is no for both then surely "brings" (singular) is required. )

But one important point here is that in B and D, that cannot refer to market since its a restrictive clause and "that" must refer to the noun just before it.
So following this rule, since B is correct, then I'd say that furniture and fixtures is singular and it's not a compound noun.

Please clarify this mystery of FURNITURE AND FIXTURE.

Brings refers to a market and not to furniture and fixtures.

B is the correct one.

B is the correct one.

Each of the books that rest on the table reminds me of her

Since that follows books, the "rest" in restrictive clause refers to books and not each.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

We need 'has grown' as fascination is singular. left B,C,E.
C,E -> need 'brings' as market is singular

B is best.

The answer has to be B since "market" is a collective noun and hence singular. Use of "has" and "is" is correct.
