Gloucester Quays Antiques Centre Closure

We have heard this morning that GQAC has been permanently closed by its owners, Peel Management and we apologise to any of our customers who might have been planning to come over and visit for their Christmas shopping.

Please bear with us while we look for an alternative regular retail outlet. If we can get one up and running before the holiday season we will and as soon as we have news we will let you all know.

For now our thoughts are with Zac and his excellent team at the centre for whom this must have been a significant blow.

2015 IndyCar finale

I suppose that it was inevitable that the season would not end well once we knew that the last race would be a double [points affair. Continue reading

Newbury Antiques & Collector’s Fair 26th October and 7th December 2015

Many thanks to all of those customers who braved a wet August Monday and came along this week to buy from us traders. This was our first time at Newbury with the Driver John stand. It wasn’t the nest of weather for much of what we stock, and so we have signed up for the next two fairs in October and December for an inside pitch instead. Continue reading

Catch us at the Newbury Antiques & Collectors Fair 24th August 2015

We will have an outside pitch at the Newbury Antiques & Collectors Fair this month. The racecourse at Newbury is a great venue with plenty of parking and good facilities and Newbury is a nice little town with lots of shops and places to eat so why now make a day of it and come along.

The web site is here: Newbury Antiques Fair for details of times, charges and directions.

Second birthday at Gloucester Quays Antiques Centre

It has been two years since we started trading at Gloucester Quays Antiques Centre and alomost two months since we moved across the top floor to our new and larger space.

We are very happy to be a part of the thriving historic docks area and love the way that the docks complex continues to develop. The potential that we saw back in 2013 was the prime reason that we chose Gloucester over the other possible locations and we’re sure that we made the right decision.

We try and keep a wide range of items in stock at GQAC to suit a range of interests and pockets. There is always a good stock of books and things to hang on the wall. In amongst the current stock you will find some airline crockery, a selection of car badges, some collectables from ocean and cruise liners and some great advertising material from the fifties through to more recent days. Prices range from less than a fiver up to three figures. We add new stock every two or three weeks.

Our specialities are probably of more interest to blokes and if you are looking for mantiques there are other traders in the antiques centre; we have a railwayana specialist, another automobila display, a vintage toy space and an autographed sports memorabilia dealer to name a few. There are around 100 dealers trading across the three floors so there is something for everyone.

You also have the outlet centre, the waterways museum, a military museum and plenty of places to eat. With ample parking and the city centre a five minute walk away (the railway station is about fiftenn minutes walk) it makes a great place to spend a day out with the family. Why not make it a weekend? There is a good range of hotels to choose from and if you want to push the boat out come for a week and explore the Cotswolds, the Wye Valley and border country too, for they are all a short drive from Gloucester.
