Arundel Eccentrics.......Who? What? Where? When?
But not necessarily in that order.
Let's start with what.
Then if it's not something you're interested in ........
Maybe a smattering of Italian once in a while.....
The occasional object that isn't antique at all
because it's just too beautiful or unusual to leave behind........
|a whale carved from reclaimed wood from Portsmouth dry docks.|
then there are mirrors
and the objects that started life as one thing and wound up to be something completely different
|Mirror made from two 19th century French windows|
and the pieces we paint and decorate ourselves....like small Victorian boxes
|& tole trays|
and larger pieces like chests of drawers....
and English Victorian bamboo
|pair of mid-century French bedsides|
|French demi lune|
|old enamel washbowls that we decorate with gilt and decoupage|
So by now, you may be interested or you may have returned to looking at FB.
If you are still with us lets look at where.
Arundel West Sussex UK.
Probably one of the most picturesque towns in the country
Not on the high street, but hidden away down a little alley, or twitten as we say down south.
From the High Street, you walk down the hill and over the bridge, keeping to the right-hand side.
Next to William Hill is a narrow alley.
Walk to the end
Sharp left again.
There may be vans or cars blocking your view.
There may be a Co-op van unloading.
Or a potato van unloading to the chippie.
Don't give up now...you've come this far.....
You may wonder if you are in the right place.
Don't be deterred.
There they are.
Three large antique warehouses.
The last remaining buildings of Arundel's 19th century Swallow Brewery.
Arundel Eccentrics is the last in the row.
Last but by no means least.
With no window to press your nose against, you could be forgiven for thinking it's not that big.
We are also in Liberty London.
Just a small collection now, but we filled the huge room on the 4th floor in 2016.
Amazing to have been invited.
Arundel Eccentrics in Liberty London
Husband and wife.
Nass and Brenda.
Live in the town.
Have done for almost thirty years.
In a lovely Victorian terrace at the other end of the street.
The river Arun at the end of the garden.
With their latest addition, Elsa.
If you have the time and the inclination this is how we started the business 20 years ago
But if not....lets move on to
Well, anytime really.
Officially we are open Fri Sat Sun 10-4pm.
There's just us.
There's no big team.
It makes us laugh when someone asks us to,
"Get your team onto it."
Particularly as our team sleeps so many hours.
|the third member of our team|
We may be out buying.
Or decorating furniture in our studio by the river.
Or collecting from the restorers or upholsterers.
But we are often there throughout the week.
Just give us a ring.
We will make sure we are there if you are travelling a distance.
I mean it.
I mean it.
Night or day.
Just let us know.
Ahead of time.
Even the day before.
Even an hour before.
We are so sad when someone calls us with,
"We've come from London (or Texas) and we are outside your warehouse and there's no-one here."
But we are 50 miles away collecting furniture.
Our best prices for trade are extremely competitive.
If you would like an indication of prices or want to book a time
Meanwhile, many of our latest pieces can be found on
Heres our FB page
Follow us on
Have a fabulous day.
As for me,
while Nass is manning the shop
I shall be over the hills with Elsa for an hour or two.
