Fairs and shows 2020

We have, for the time being, decided not to do any shows or events this year. They take a lot of effort and whilst we enjoy meeting people and chatting almost as much as we like selling we would rather devote the time and money to other things. Continue reading

You can find the antiques centre in the marketplace right in the centre of the town. There is limited parking in the market place, but there are other public car parks within a 3-5 minute walk. Cirencester is one of the jewels of the Cotswold region and there is a lot to do in and around this historic town.

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.
