I have been interested in antiques for many years, visiting Antiques Fairs and 'Boot Sales' in the UK.
I've created a personal network of British Antique Dealers specialising in quality, affordable antiques & collectables.
With an eye for Victoriana, the Antiques Boutique is a little gem for sourcing those unique items for your home restoration project, your personal collection or for sourcing a gift for an antique lover!
I have worked for many large institutions in the UK including several large UK banks, Utility Companies and Britain's biggest Health care Insurer. During my working years I've gained a Higher National diploma in Business Studies, A Diploma in IT & Computing, an NVQ Level III in Customer Service and best of all - proudly achieved a Certificate in Ceramic Restoration - & all of these whilst working full time!
I am a 'Ricardian' - a member of the Richard III Society, whose mission statement is: 'In the belief that many features of the traditional accounts of the character and career of Richard III are neither supported by sufficient evidence nor reasonably teneble, the Society aims to promote in every possible way research into the life & times of Richard III & to secure a reassessment of the material relating to this period & of the role in English history of this monarch.'
I am the webmaster for the Richard III Society - American Branch
The Antiques Boutique is a Proud Sponsor of the Greyfriars Dig - The Search for Richard III - The Last Plantagenet King of England
Originally from the Wirral in the UK, I emigrated to Nova Scotia with my husband Ian, a certified Bushcraft Instructor & live with 2 dogs: Flat Coated Retreiver Bertie & rescued Chocolate Lab Stanley, & 4 rescued kitty-cats Leeloo, Ichabod, Nelly & Fanny & a few chickens on 200 acres of beautiful countryside on Cape Breton Island.
Diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma in early 2013, I am now fortunate to be cancer free & enjoy life to the full.
