A childhood interest in collecting natural history, rocks & minerals, old bottles etc; together with the many excursions to the old Sydney Museum with its Victorian-era ambience instilled a passion for the collected object and their connection in science and history. Later, the restoration (and conservation) of early colonial furniture bought at rural clearance sales, led to the opening of a retailing outlet in1992. Since then, old-ware collectables, curiosities and mid-century design have been added as stock. 

While enjoying the website, ponder the history of the objects; and please don’t hesitate to contact us about anything that you see on the website or if you are trying to source a particular object that we may be able to help you with.
