Mansfield Antiques Gets Into It
Mansfield Antiques is owned and operated by Richard and Biddie and started in Merivale in 1995. Over the years we established a wide client base in New Zealand and Overseas. In more recent years to obtain sufficient stock of quality and interest, we commenced importing from the UK, sourcing the goods ourselves.
Our business was doing well, having recovered from the recession, when the February earthquake put an end to it all. Our shop was demolished and for the next 10 months or so we survived by doing EQC valuations.'
After much soul searching and trying to find new “affordable” accommodation we have finally re-established our business just around the corner from the Merivale shopping centre where we had our shop, to our home in Rugby Street. Signs have been erected at our gate and our garage has been cleared and undergone a revamp.
Plans for another buying trip to the UK are being finalized and this stock should arrive well before Christmas.
We specialize in Georgian to early 20th century furniture, outdoor items, interior designer pieces, silver and gifts. Specific items can be sourced for clients; we can also arrange furniture repairs and conduct all types of valuations. A wide range of waxes, polishes etc are also carried in stock. We welcome and look forward to seeing all our old clients again and meeting new ones.
