Having worked in the industry for over 25 years I thought it was time that someone represented all the United Kingdom's experienced and specialist dealers on one website. Fifteen years ago, in a restaurant in New York, we were all discussing the internet and we bought website names thinking nothing would come of it.
On my return to the United Kingdom everyone I spoke to laughed and said 'what is the internet and email ?' to which I joked, 'just wait and see'.
As we have found over the years dealers throughout the United Kingdom have been ignored and I hope with the development of www.antiques.co.uk that we can make aware to the rest of the world that we are in existence and are very knowledgeable.
England has as always been the heart and centre of the antiques world, steeped in history throughout all ages, and my intention by promoting this site is to place us back on the world map as the best antique dealers in the world which is what we are good at.
We have created a site to allow sellers to either list their items individually or have direct links to their own web sites, allowing them to be open and seen 24 hours a day 365 days of the year throughout the entire world. Each day our visitor rate expands and sales grow. I hope that you can join in the fun and sales through Antiques.co.uk.
