Hi! I'm Paul Jones, second generation antiques dealer loving what I do. I opened a small shop in Cheshire last year, buying and selling country antiques, pine furniture and decorative items. I also organise a small but successful monthly Beaumaris Antique and Collectors' Fair on the Isle of Anglesey which I took over in 2011.
I wouldn't be able to suggest what you might call my style; I love tactile treen objects, mellow Victorian pine, Welsh oak, folk art and also industrial and utilitarian wares. Colour, warmth and texture are common themes.
My appreciation for beautiful country items comes from my parents, Merfyn and Trish, who own M Jones A'i Fab Antiques ( which is Welsh for 'M Jones and Son'), a most wonderful business comprising a shop and a gallery in the beautiful seaside town of Beaumaris. They have been established for about thirty years (since before I was born!) and stock some truly incredible Welsh oak furniture, religious carvings and folk art.
In April 2013, I was immensely proud to be in the final 12 shortlisted for the Antiques Young Guns awards, which was the first step on this amazing journey with the AYG movement! I am always available and glad to help anyone aspiring to get into the trade, feel free to contact me! And if you haven't already, follow me on Twitter, Pinterest or like my Facebook page, always happy to chat to likeminded souls.
Right, enough about me... Welcome to my store, hope you find something you love.
