    Hello, I started dealing in antiques at the tender age of 20 in 1976...yes I really am that old!... Growing up in Brighton through the 1960's and 70's, the town was then a national hub for the trade... Many interesting and eccentric characters...and some rather dangerous!...Brighton was the place to learn about everything antiques related if you were interested enough. For me it was exciting and fascinating...From the hard grafting "Knocker Boys" out and about sourcing stock at street level....up to the old established "top end" dealer families in the Lanes and Upper North Street...I have traded in many antiques centers, fairs and enjoyed running two shops of my own, with my main interest being furniture... Now it's all on-line... Who would have thought it?..old world craftsmanship being traded via the new technology... more later... Martyn.
