We are part of a family run business which has been operating since 1929, under Sidney G Dyson as a furniture shop. Then in 1952 it was changed to a clock shop by his son in law Emil Skiba who upon his retirement past the business to his daughter Jo Elwood. Who now runs it with Garry Martin and her daughter Vicky Elwood.
In 2010 greenman antiques opened over the road from the family premises. Specializing in 17th -19th century mahogany, walnut and oak furniture, Georgian silver, fine china, jewelry, collectibles and decorative glassware.
We didn't want it to feel like every other antiques shop out there we wanted a shop that was warm, friendly and inviting. So we designed the shop to look like a room set up and all the furniture has been checked by our restorer and is ready to go into your house.
We are finding that more and more people want to invest their money in antiques and collectibles.
So we try and stock furniture, silver and small items that are functional whilst being individual or unusual.
