The Britain’s Best Antiques Shop Inaugural awards were launched in the November 2011 issue of Homes & Antiques to tie in with National Antiques Week. Readers and members of the public were invited to nominate their favourite antiques businesses in five categories where thousands of people nominated. A shortlist of 25 antiques businesses from across the country was announced in the March issue of Homes & Antiques.
Whilst we were delighted to have reached the final 5 in Britain’s Best Antique Shop competition we regret to say that we didn't win. I would like to once again thank everyone who kindly voted for us. It was still a huge achievement for us to be recognised and will be trying much harder next year ;-)
