Since 2004, I have been acquiring mainly modest but sound pieces of Antique, Period, Reproduction, Retro & Vintage Second-Hand furniture requiring, on the whole, only minor cleaning, repairs & restoration, in order to bring them up to 'shop' standard. My business, called ‘A Part of the Furniture’ has various outlets & incarnations, both virtual and actual, including this Etsy Shop and Unit 67 at The Brackley Antique Cellar. At my shops you will find a variety of hand-picked pieces of practical, usable furniture, whether genuine antiques, good quality period or modern reproductions, retro items from the 1960s & 70s and well-made, more recent but pre-Ikea classics from makers like Ercol, G-Plan, Stag, Jaycee, Old Charm & Bevan Funnell. My customers may be confident that they are buying practical furniture that has style and elegance in design, is ready to use in the home and is made to last. I love the craftsmanship and elegance of antique, so-called ‘brown’ furniture and generally leave the ‘shabby chic’ to others, except where condition is an issue and the only way to breath new life into a piece is to re-finish in paint.
I will deliver any item of furniture from my shop in person for £10 only within a 25 mile radius of Brackley in Northamptonshire, £30 only within a radius of 26-50 miles or up to £70 only within a radius of 51-100 miles. Where possible, I will quote at commercial rates for distances over 100 miles or try www.shiply.com
for couriers with part loads but, in all cases where you are considering a purchase, please let me have your PostCode so I may confirm the delivery cost. Alternatively, you are welcome to collect the item yourself.
Although I only, at present, show a UK delivery option, I am open to enquiries from outside the UK and I have arranged shipment to the USA & Europe in the past. However, please bear in mind that shipping costs may be prohibitive and will include my own expenses.
All items may be viewed, by appointment, at Brackley in Northamptonshire.
