A Trip Down Memory Lane

Applecross GuaranteeHaving been advised by a well-meaning friend in “The Trade”, that, next to farming, and arguably with the exception of backing horses, the antiques trade was probably the most rewarding occupation by way of which to lose money, we opened our first shop in 1975 in Sidmouth, Devon ~ Perhaps more by good luck than good judgement we have, during the ensuing forty five years, and despite the vicissitudes of fashion, managed to remain solvent whilst thoroughly enjoying our chosen profession ~ We consider ourselves to be Very Lucky ~

How delighted then we were to unearth this sign from our store following our recent move to Shropshire ~ Long believed lost, it was specially commissioned for the opening of our shop and, painted by talented local Signwriter John Wilde, subsequently hung there for many years ~ True Testament we believe to our longstanding commitment to “Proper Old Fashioned Customer Service” ~
