What’s the deal with Antiques Assocation birthday?

The Antiques Association
The Antiques Association

The Antiques Association was formed this time last year as a result of the closure at Woburn Abbey’s Antiques Centre.

After many weeks of searching for new premises, the ex-Woburn Abbey Antiques Centre dealers with their newly formed association finally settled in Woburn village, which already boasts a great reputation for antique shops and auctions.

A year on from opening their doors to the public on November 1, 2013, The Antiques Association has gone from strength to strength and are planning a great weekend to celebrate their first anniversary of trading.

The weekend of November 1-2 (10am – 5pm) will officially mark their first anniversary at 4 Market Place and a Meet the Dealers weekend has been arranged. A 20% discount on selected items is being offered to all that come to celebrate the occasion. There will also be a competition to ‘find something in a picture’ with a champagne prize.

Many of the dealers including John Bly (Antiques Roadshow fame), and Anna Maggs who originally formed The Antiques Association and has taken the lead role, will be present to meet visitors and customers for the weekend.

A spokesman said: “They have all worked extremely hard over this past year to make their premises one of the best antiques centres in the area, with a large selection of fantastic antiques both big and small with prices to suit everyone.

“We now have a website www.antiquesassociation.co.uk where you can browse some of their wares online and marvel at their superb achievement in such a short space of time.”
