Whilst some of our clients own more than one castle
Most don't, in essence we sell what people want and understand. Generally we don't stock 12 foot mirrors as most of of our clients live in normal houses and cottages, with max 7 feet high ceiling. (We have one who lives in a caravan in a wood, and a great client he is too).
Antiques dealers are very guilty of stocking what thrills them rather than what thrills the clients, of course we can as dealers raise peoples expectations and open their eyes to new things.
Often quoting "these brass candlesticks c1790 used to make £300 a pair now hardly sell, even at £30" well we would say leave them alone and offer buyers what they want.
But horses for courses, making Top Banana Antiques a fun and pertinent place to shop and hunt for that much needed item.
