North Yorkshire

A Visit To York & More Special Offers!

We hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful summer we seem to be having at the moment. We recently visited the fabulous city of York in North Yorkshire and paid a visit to two antiques centres that are located close to York Minster - The Antiques Centre York and The Red House Antiques Centre. Both these antique centres are fairly large establishments laid out over several floors.

The Red House Antiques Centre had an interesting mix of artifacts and furniture alongside silver and pottery items whilst The Antiques Centre York had lots of jewellery items and silver alongside cabinets of pottery and collectable items. Items in both centres were laid out well with clear labelling and pricing, and plenty of staff around to answer questions or allow access to items in the cabinets. When we visited both centres were fairly busy with people browsing the cabinets and displays. If you're in York then they are certainly worthwhile spending some time visiting.

Item Of The Month...

Our special offer item for August ONLY is this superb PenDelfin Collectors Handbook by Stella Ashbrook and signed by Jean Walmsley Heap.
