About

Meet the Owners, Matthew and Vicky

 

Matthews interest in antiques started when he was bought his first pocket watch by his parents, Ray and Faine Tong, for his 18th Birthday. Matthews passion remains particularly, for late Victorian silver and gentleman items and he is very proud of his vast pocket watch collection! Another big influence has been his relationship with his uncle Wal, who started dealing antiques when he was a Pilot just after WWII, shipping glass from Italy and selling in the Birmingham market.

Matthew started his working career as a fruit and veg man in Oswestry (you know, the one that’s always shouting a Big bag of apples ONLY £1 etc.!)He then went to work at the Theatre in Shrewsbury for 15 years and managed 3 museums in Shrewsbury.

You may have heard of his talent for singing, he has sang in front of large audiences, biggest being over 7000 people and has raised over £30,000 for charities in Shropshire over the years.

Vicky’s career started in Sales and Business Development from the age of 16, starting work in the office the day after leaving school.

They have two young girls, who already at their young ages are showing an interest in the family business.
