Due to retirement the Antique shop, which had previously been established successfuly for over 40 years, became available in the summer of this year.

Mr Collins said: “For several years I have collected quality and beautiful antiques, initially buying Oriental, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco. I will now be stocking a wider range including vintage, retro, collectables and furniture as well as speciallity items. I am also hoping to increase my business by buying privately from individuals and will consider any quality antiques.

“It is a new venture for me. I find the area does have a real sense of purpose and I appreciate the helpful advice from other businesses in the street.

“I believe very strongly that I can make a success of this new opportunity and my intention is to create the true sense of serendipity to all who enter my shop.”
