Overview
More
A proper old school antiques and collectables shop. Trying to fit as many interesting pieces into the floorspace as possible - around 10,000 so far. There is quite a focus on militaria and vintage toys but we try to cover as many areas as possible as the whim takes us. We aim to delight, stun, amuse and hopefully sell. We are always massively buying from the public too at fair prices. A lot of our stock is listed online and you can see it from links on the website. There is free public access to our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
