By definition, an antique is something that is at least one hundred years old. Whether it be a book, a piece of furniture or a pretty plate. It is classed as an antique if it is one hundred years old or more. 

Vintage on the other hand are items that are at least 20 years old but less than one hundred years old.

Items are offered daily. In the past, we have imported container loads of stock from England, France, and the Mediterranean.  Luckily, there is plenty of stock available and I have a shop full to prove it!
