Hello, my name is Mike Melody, many will know me as a TV Antiques expert on shows like Dickinson's Real Deal. For the last 40 years my wife Margaret and I have run a successful full time antiques business based in the North of England. This website is taking us into the 21st century (we only had a typewriter and a phone until a few weeks ago!)
Hand-picked and original antiques
We now have a new passion - to bring our shared love of primarily antique country furniture and accessories to a much wider audience. This is the type of furniture which is timeless and suits any décor - from a castle to a cottage.
Every item offered has been hand-picked using our expertise for colour originality, and competitive price.
Shop with confidence with our money-back guarantee
I understand completely that buying on the internet can be intimidating, so with this in mind we offer a complete money-back guarantee within 14 days based on our description being accurate and backed by a LAPADA certification of authenticity. All items are available to be viewed by appointment at our premises in Chester and at the many antique shows we attend, including the N.E.C, Harrogate, and Chester.
Delivered by experienced antique handlers
All items are delivered in the U.K on our own vans. Overseas shipments are handled by our preferred shippers, Locksons. Payment methods include cheques and all major credit cards, just ring 01244 660 204 or email us for details.
Finally with your help we aim to make this the best little ol' website in the country, we run a happy ship and hope new and old customers alike will come on board. Please don't hesitate to ask if you don't see what you need.
