As you can imagine having been in business for well over 40 years we have a vast wealth of knowledge and experience in all areas of the antiques trade between us here at S & S Timms Antiques Ltd. We are always more than happy to share and pass this experience and knowledge on to others where possible, whether they be avid collectors, novice dealers, prospective clients, or even just a member of the public seeking advice on something. We all have to start somewhere and passionately believe here at S & S Timms that sometimes our own industry can be seen as a little inaccessible, or even snooty at times.
As you have probably already established, our business is now run from our extensive website, which us updated on an almost daily basis, and also from the many antiques fairs we attend with a small selection of our stock throughout the UK each year. We also have a small selection of our stock for sale, and on display, in our area at The Edenbridge Galleries in Kent. The Edenbridge Galleries, is an exceptionally high quality collective of respected dealers from various disciplines, owned and managed by Antiques Roadshow furniture expert Lennox Cato.
Anything which is for sale on our website can be viewed by appointment only at our warehouse facility in Bedfordshire, or alternatively with adequate notice at the Edenbridge Galleries. We also offer an approval service, which subject to availability, allows clients to view prospective purchases in the comfort of their own home. Further details regarding the approval service can be found on each items individual detail page.
Of course we also attend in the region of 12 – 15 high quality Antiques Fairs each year, which range from small provincial events to some very grand central London events. We always try to showcase as much variety and volume of our stock as possible at these events, but in truth it is only ever possible for us to display an extremely small crosssection of our stock at any one time. We always have complimentary downloadable etickets available to events we are attending, and these will always be available to print and download on our fairs/events page and you will also be able to keep an eye on our schedule for the year here.
