After owning a retail store for over 24 years, I had one problem: I couldn't keep stock in the store. Shipments would sell out the same day they arrived. So something just had to be done.

I came up with the idea of moving my store and opening up a "warehouse" type location where I could have event sales which allow me to do more interior design work or simply stay home and "sip" some tea if I so desired. Well, I haven't had any time to sip tea as I'm busier than ever with design work. Speaking of interior design, I love mixing the old with the new. I don't believe antique stores should sell reproductions—antique stores should sell antiques! An example of this is: you won't ever find a pieces of Staffordshire made in China at my store. I take pride in selling only authentic antiques.

I'm open on occasion during the week, and will post each day I'm open on Facebook and this website. Event sales will be posted on the Next Event page. I enjoy this new way of doing business with my customers and hope you'll become a customer soon. Once you do, you'll understand why my items sell quickly. Great prices, great pieces, and I never sell anything that I wouldn't have in my own home. I love my customers like they are family and friends. I hope to see you soon!

Bring a little bit of English into your home, and you'll understand the English way of life.
