Exciting stuff is happening here

Good morning all, isn't it lovely when the sun shines?

And isn't this fabulous Starch box just fabulous? 

We have some exciting news here at Harrogate Antique Centre....

The BBC's Antiques Road Trip Programme will be filmed here soon, ta da!!!

We will post you the date shortly, but its very exciting. As a new centre it will be good for us to get our name out there which is always hard for any new business. And for our customers it will add a touch of glamour to the proceedings as well as the chance to meet some experts on the day.


The BBC will be filming on 30th May.

Come along and watch!

And then, as if that isn't enough, the Celebrity version of the programme - Celebrity Antiques Road Trip would you believe - will be coming along a bit later in the year too, so watch this space.....

The BBC Antiques Road Trip is shown on prime time TV and our episode will be aired later in the year. We will let you know when cos we don't want anyone to miss it!

But 'til then, back to the here and now. Here is a quick taster of what we have in at the moment.

Don't you just love this dresser? I think it's lovely.
I quite like the chairs too, and the pine cupboard behind them, but the dresser is really very nice.

I love the eclectic nature of this stand, there's always something interesting. 
I like the big bust behind these pictures, juxtaposed with the dresser it looks fab.

And then, further round we have a pair of these captain's chairs.

and some numbers

and letters

these are sold as a collection or individually, which is nice.

And then in the bottom back corner the big room has been filled

and I mean filled, there is lots to see in here now and this really is eclectic.

This is where that lovely Starch Box I showed you at the start lives

sharing room with a fabulous bikers jacket

this great chair

a military style tunic

a fur stole

books and signs, pictures, plates and boxes, and loads of other stuff.
Its worth coming just to look in here!

But then we have more restrained stuff too

like this beautifully painted chest of drawers, very elegant with the mirror above.

and this plated tea set, again harks back to more elegant times.

and this oil lamp, which is stunning.

And finally, to end today's jaunt, this imposing chest from Phil who seems to like chests. Rather grand this one, you could get several small children in here or pirate's treasure, or just hide lots of stuff in it!

And that's it for today. I hope you have enjoyed looking. 
We are open every day so please come along and have a look. Opening times are 9 'til 5 Monday to Saturday and 10 'til 4 on Sundays. We are easy to find on the A61 at Pannal just outside Harrogate, opposite the Mercedes Dealership and just before the Golf Club!

Or if you would like a price or more information on anything you have seen you can phone us on 01423 872463. We are more than happy to help.

Hope to see you again soon. Take care.
