The AntiquesArena Journey 

I began my journey some 30 years ago as a young boy going to car boot sales with my parents, We lived in the Welsh Valley's , an old X-mining town where there was not a great deal of money, My parents done what they could but they worked car boot sales for years in order to help pay some bills and to provide a better life for us. It is safe to say that the seed of my interest however small or imperceptible was already planted. Later in my life during my early 20s i found myself unable to work, needing money so i went back to what i knew which was to work some car boot sales to try and manage, family and friends all used to donate items for me to sell to help pay my bills, however it didn't take me long to realise there were dealers buying my items and selling them for a huge profit, it was at this point i realised i could make money buying and selling and that things did have value far more than the few pounds i was selling it for.

I worked the odd car boot sale for the next ten years buying and selling junk trying to self teach antiques and collectables. It was an expensive tuition with many mistakes and unforgettable lessons however i eventually finally moved on to just buying quality items and started selling online, for the last eight years i have been running an antiques business with some fine quality items, i run an online website and was very proud in 2017 to open my very first small antiques shop.

Currently I am working my online on ebay my website and in my antiques shop i Mountain Ash, in addition to this i create videos on youtube. In these videos you can expect to find wonderful content that is both educational and very thrilling, you accompany me on my treasure hunts and see my finds , they are filmed raw and un-researched so then you get to see the thrill when something turns out to be a real gem. In addition to this you get to come with me on family days out and meet my family and get to know the real us.
