I have been an Antique Dealer for over 45 years and have been trading in Hungerford for 40 years, 38 of them in my High Street Shop at 103, the High Street Hungerford. I specialize in Good Quality English Interesting Victorian Items and always try to find the quirky or more obscure. My shop is open 7 days a week including Bank Holidays and has in stock a huge range of Antiques. More recently I have appeared regularly as an expert antique dealer on the ITV programme Dickinson’s Real Deal. I have been working on this programme since it started 14 years ago and have just signed the contract for the next series, series 15. This does ensure I am on afternoon TV once or twice a week for a lot of the year, I also appear occasionally on other TV programmes including Salvage Hunters with Drew Pritchard, Bargain Hunt, Antiques Road Trip, Put your money where your mouth is, Antiques in the attic and Car Booting.
My wife and I live in the High Street in Hungerford and really do enjoy living in the centre of such an attractive town with a good community spirit.
Members are asked to bring in any older items for me to discuss and value if possible. The most unusual and interesting the better. I am very knowledgeable on items of:
- Social History
- Household Objects
- Metal Work
- Architectural Items
