About Us

Based a few miles from Stratford upon Avon Warwickshire

I started dealing in Antiques and collectables in the mid 1970's from a shop in the delightful village of Henley in Arden Warwickshire.At this time period stripped pine furniture was all the rage and I majored in it. Pine furniture was stripped and polished before being shipped all across the world in container loads! I remember thinking that one day we will be painting this again.

I fell out of love with antiques in the 1990's and returned to my first love of playing my French horn and teaching.

In the early  2000's I moved to Norfolk where I took the decision to revisit my old trade and set up stall in the lovely Holt antiques centre. I soon became involved in the new fashion of "shabby chic",  painting and distressing furniture! Family reasons saw my family move to Warwickshire where I continue my business although now solely online especially given the recent virus issues.

I hope you enjoy viewing my website. If you havent seen what you were looking for please contact me as I may have it in store waiting to be listed.

From humble beginnings
