My wife Margaret and I have been in antiques and vintage for over 40 years. We started on a cold market stall in Chester and ending up with a 10,000 sq ft store in the same city. When we sold our business in 2001 we had one of the biggest export /retail antique businesses in the north of England. We now operate from major fairs. Whether it's a simple wash-board or a fine welsh dresser we only own items we love. Most of our stock selection is based on originality, colour and patination - that tactile sense you get when you stroke a piece of well waxed furniture.
I am also a regular on TV's \Dickinson's Real Deal\" and \"Secret Dealers\". Melody Antiques has been a member of LAPADA for over 28 years."
