Lostwithiel Antique Centre

Owned and run by a couple with a lifelong passion for antiques, Lostwithiel Antique Centre is a real gem for treasure hunting in Cornwall, and it is easy to see why people travel from much further afield to shop here

Lostwithiel is no stranger to quality antiques, with a selection of wonderful stores and a regular market to boot. One store that collectors definitely do not want to miss is the Lostwithiel Antique Centre. Owned and run by a couple with a lifelong passion for antiques, there seems to be nothing about the old and collectable that they do not know. It is a real gem for treasure hunting in Cornwall, and it is easy to see why people travel from much further afield to shop here.

After a visit to Lostwithiel Antique Centre, it is usual to find yourself on first names terms with the owners. Annette and Martin have made a real name for themselves, in large part due to their fantastic eye for quality curation of goods and also because of their genuine friendliness and enthusiasm for their profession. Anyone who enters their store immediately feels welcome and will certainly want to return, if only to catch up with these lovely people!

It is easily possible to get lost in the past when browsing through the amazing merchandise within the Lostwithiel Antique Centre. Pieces of furniture run the gambit in terms of size, and if you desire something that just will not fit in your car then the store will happily arrange a transport service. Among the furnishings are also pieces of taxidermy, ornaments of all shapes and sizes, road signs, vintage bicycle, jewelry boxes, china ware, vintage arcade machines, retro games and toys and a whole host of curios from the 1970s and before.

Lostwithiel Antique Centre is open daily, but do not think that this means the same items sit on the shelves week in week out. The owners take care to ensure that there are always new goods for regular visitors to investigate. Whether serious collector or more casual shopper, it is very difficult to leave this store empty handed.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
