What Our Customers Say

I have been a collector of oddities and antiques for many years. I have always been attracted to those antiques that tell a story, are macabre, or just speak to my soul.

When I found The House of Antiques, I was nervous because I am in the United States, and they are located in the UK. I couldn’t have been more wrong to be nervous! Every transaction was seamless! After countless conversations with Harry (who himself seems mystical, because he ALWAYS knows exactly what I would like, and reaches out to me whenever they get something in that he believes fits my tastes), I have not had ONE problem with ANY of the items received. My items have always been first-rate, fairly priced, packaged well, and shipped in a timely manner. They have an eye for the unique, and I look forward to when a new item is posted, as I know that it is something that I will not be able to find ANYWHERE else.

I now don’t just consider myself just a client of the House of Antiques, I feel that Harry who heads up the team there and I are indeed friends, and that makes the interactions even more pleasant.
