Each issue, Dealer Kieran Mathewson OF River and Jones digs into the lives of fellow dealers to find out more about their individual style, loves, fears and aspirations.
IN THE AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2019 ISSUE…
Summer is in full force, and although being stuck in a van on the road for hours on end, in this weather, may not sound like a lot of fun for most people, for an antiques dealer, there is nothing more luring than the open road and the chance of discovering something incredible on the way. Dropping the windows, flicking the radio on, and hitting the road in search of new ‘treasures’ is perhaps the most exciting and enjoyable part. Having an ice-cold beer when you reach your destination is also always a welcome reward. So, enjoy it while you can... it might snow next week.
IN THIS ISSUE... We talk to Mark Lock of Marchand Antiques about his experience as a dealer, and we learn to hold our nerve when sitting on a piece of stock that just won’t sell. Don’t be afraid to wait for the right customer, it will always work out well in the end!
We escape to the countryside with McCully & Crane, who share their love for art and upcoming artists, but admit the business will never come before their passion for the rescue dogs they’ve adopted, who are now a big part of their lives.
Finally, Ridding & Wynn reveal there will be a Third Series of Killing Eve, after sourcing more stock for the BBC, and they tell us about their plans to expand after outgrowing their new shop in just 14 weeks!
