This really IS a hidden gem, with no shop window at all! You would never know it was there. It used to be known as Johnsons Antiques but if you didn’t find it then (what a shame!) now’s the time to hunt it out. Pete and Jo have been ‘in the trade’ (as they say in the antiquey world) for over 20 years …and boy does it show! Once you find the door and pick your way through the masses of lovely stuff that greets you, a feast of original antiques awaits you. English, French, European…..who knows what you’ll find in here? And everything’s skilfully restored and either polished or paint finished. Pete and Jo are always on sourcing trips in Europe, spying out and nabbing the best, and they supply their antiquey goodies to other local hidden gems too, ones with windows and everything. But who needs windows? Beats us why you wouldn’t go straight there and have a happy hour or two…or three…mooching.
