In 1968 I became interested in old pewter and in 1970 with my wife Pat opened our first shop at 76 Derby road in Nottingham, rent was £8 a week rates £6 a month. In 1973 I was invited to join The British Antique Dealers Association and I am still a member 50 years later. We moved from Nottingham to Stow on the Wold in July 1976 to a period property in the Square, part of it dating to the 16th century. We exhibited at the first three British Antique Dealers Association fairs with great success. Now in 2023 we are still here happily offering quality antiques to customers old and new.
