New site facilities and services
We are pleased to announce that our new physical facilities will be open by appointment for customers in Lower Normandy soon. We will be serving customers in the Vire area. Click here to explore our new neighbourhood on Google Maps.
Work is continuing at pace with the shop front nearing completion. The shop itself is also currently undergoing refurbishment and we will be posting photos soon.
Please note that our inventory of well over 20,000 items is only available online for sale, our new site will be for us to purchase items only and for customers to collect items they have purchased from us online. We buy locally in person but only sell via our online venues.
Our local office will be open by appointment only for us to buy items from visitors. Customers will need to register with us to bring us goods they would like to sell.
Items you sell to us will need to be appropriate for our brand. Try a search in one of our stores for an idea of what we currently sell. Click here to visit
Generally items should be collectable, vintage (20+ years old) or antique (100 years old). If you are not sure just drop us a message with a photo and we will quickly let you know at email@example.com
Our new shop windows will show a selection of the items we are interested in purchasing along with guides of prices we pay. It will also be our studio where we photograph and list our stock.
All users of our purchasing services will need to register supplying copies of identification. A registration form will be available here soon.
We are currently visiting customers in their homes for buying. You can complete our buying form by clicking here.
Valuations for sale, probate or insurance
Do you need to get an idea of what things are worth? We can give you trade and retail prices on vintage and antique items. Valuations for single items start at €20 Euros. 10-20 items = €15 an item. 20+ items = €10 an item. Your valuations will be given verbally at the time of viewing and written up in an official valuation document sent to you within seven days of payment.
Valuations can take place online, in your home, or in our new office by appointment.
Estate clearance services
We don’t personally do house clearances but we are keen to see your items before you get the clearance guys in! We are happy to come to your local premises and give you prices for individual pieces we are interested in purchasing.
As we sell to a worldwide market we are confident we can offer you higher prices than other local dealers who rely on the local market to sell on merchandise. There is no rush, obligation or pressure to sell to us and we are happy to give clients thinking time. Male and/or female callers can visit. English, French or German speaking.
We do have colleagues who will be happy to come in and clear properties for you. Depending on house contents these services can often be free. A ‘clearance’ service will see your premises cleared from top to bottom but of course we would suggest you call us in first!
If you would like a visit for valuation or clearance please contact us.
