Visitors are enticed into this pokey, red-painted shop by the goods piled up outside. Shop here for leather trunks to decorate your living room and tennis rackets from the 1920s. Stock includes 18th- and 19th-century furniture, as well as tapestries and paintings dating from the 17th century. Our website is updated every week with new stock and sold stock removed.

We can advise on colour, style, theme and lighting to ensure a truly unique style. She soon learnt the best – and the worst – ways to offload items. He also took a moral line that he couldn’t give away any present he’d received.
I wanted to make lists and start the clearing before finding a new home. He preferred to pretend it wasn’t really happening. Like many men, once settled, he didn’t want to move at all. Moving home is up there with life’s other key stresses like divorce and bereavement, and it’s especially tough to synchronise buying and selling in these tricky times.
I wanted a modern home, not a smaller version of what we had, and to buy as much new as possible. Bob agreed – with the exception of our antique mahogany dining table, that extends to seat 16.
I argued it wouldn’t fit into a new, smaller place. To downsize profitably you need to be an expert in what you sell. Neither of us wanted a man with a van to charge us for taking everything away in one swoop.
We would let our three sons choose whatever they wanted.
I hoped they wouldn’t all go for the same things, but that was a wasted worry. None of them wanted our vintage wares anyway. They took little more than a light fitting, a brass-and-glass fireguard and a silver sauceboat. Lesson learnt: don’t expect your offspring to share your taste.
We would take a pitch in a car boot sale to sell some small antiques, which at least would be fun. In fact we were the last to be let in and spread our things out on a rug. The coffee table sold for £15 but there was little interest in the books, even at 10p a hardback and 5p a paperback. They asked the price then either bought it or walked away. Lesson learnt: choose the right area for what you want to sell.
We would send the more valuable antique furniture to be auctioned.
We took advice from a friend who clears houses for a living.
We swiftly discovered that the bottom has dropped out of the auction market for “brown” furniture. Nor did we know that it can take weeks between furniture arriving at an auction house and the sale date. Lesson learnt: avoid letting someone do things that in the internet age you could do yourselves.
It went for just under £600, which wasn’t bad. Your rubbish – anything from a tin of powdered baby milk to items of furniture – might be just what someone else is looking for. No money changes hands and the person who wants it collects it. But a two-seater sofa bed proved a problem. Of course there are risks attached to letting strangers come to collect items rather than ship them, which we thought was too much hassle. So we made sure collections were arranged in daylight hours and when we were both at home. Verbal valuations are given free of charge and home visits are available by appointment. Transport and storage can also be arranged. Every auction is streamed live online giving bidders from further afield the opportunity to participate in the auctions. Chinese libation cups £25, 000 for a mahogany console table from a local farmhouse. Please contact our staff if you have any questions regarding our general auction.
