The shop has now been open for nearly two years and there is much more stock than when I first started, Is that good?....Well I think so, especially if you are a customer.
What have I learnt?, well!, when it comes to antique furniture then it is quality that sells, but also, surprisingly, quality can frighten people, "This is too good for our house", I have heard people say," How can you say that", I reply, "you must deserve better", or" my house is to modern for this", I point out that my friend Darren, who is dedicated to pre 17th Century oak, lives in a new house, my other friend who collects fossils, does not live in a cave. Quality Antique furniture can look good anywhere, what is needed is imagination and a desire to be different, oh ! and a taste for something that does not lose all of its value on the journey home.
Hope to see you soon.
"Medway Antiques & Faversham Antiques is from the fine antique furniture collection owned by myself Chris Chapman offering a once in a generation opportunity to own a prime collectors quality item of furniture.
It is not by chance that I specialise in pre 1850's furniture as I regard this date to be the cusp between handmade and crafted and machine made and mass produced.
Pictured items herein have been taken using a high resolution camera in order to provide you the interested buyer the best quality detail of the items on sale here. Please note that purchases are on a collection only basis however I can deliver most items within 10 miles of Medway.
