How to Craft Great Ones
Everything has a story but nothing more than antiques
Modern Age of Storytelling
As we grow older our stories become part of our legacy
Tried various careers to figure out my way in life.
It was during this time that i discovered the world of antiques and as with anything in life that is worth doing, learning antiques was one of the toughest challenges I have ever had.
The early years of my journey were very tough and costly, working out of the back of a car in all weathers, driving for as much as six hours each way to work from as little as a few hours to three days at an event. like so many who live in this world I made a great deal of costly mistakes both on the buying and the selling side of the business.
As my experience and knowledge grew I would taste more and more success and that just meant I was even more determined to succeed. Eventually I moved from working and grafting at fairs and similar events I moved towards online selling which opened up my business to the whole world.
Antiques Fulfilled Dreams
I began buying and selling online and have done so for the last 20 years. My business expanded and evolved and I fulfilled a dream which was to opened my own antiques shop. Wanting to give back to the community I decided to stay in Mountain Ash a small town in the welsh valleys where I offer a valuable service both making my treasures available but also buying off people who just want to turn things in to cash.
Greatest treasure of my life, by far, is my family.
Ever since, my business has bloomed and I have collected more than I can keep count of. I have been very lucky and Handled some beautiful and historically important artefacts, But all that being said, the greatest treasure of my life, by far, is my family.
I have had a good life and had four amazing children who I have had the privilege of raising and watching them all grow in to wonderful individuals who are working on their own dreams,
then I met my beautiful fiancée and her two wonderful children in 2016 and from that love our beautiful daughter Gracie-belle was born.
