Are you an antique, jewellery or collectables dealer? If so, then consider joining us! We are York’s largest and most centrally located Antiques Centre. York Minster’s south transept and its main entrance is a 30-second walk from our front door. All this means that we have the highest footfall of any centre in York.
Our dealer community is longstanding and loyal to the Antiques Centre York. We believe it is because we focus on doing three things well:
1 - We are really good at selling antiques: our experienced team are dedicated to helping customers find that special item.
2 - We are careful with your money: our sales settlements are FAST and ACCURATE.
3 - We are security focussed: we have a comprehensive alarm system and CCTV, multiple security shutters and many other deterrents and active security measures.
Our rental charges vary throughout the centre and are based on the sales we have achieved for our dealers in each area. So, chances are, we have a unit that will suit you.
We tend to be full or very nearly full, but units do become available from time to time. If you’d like to join us, please email email@example.com and tell us a bit about you, what you stock and what you’re looking for.
Sales and marketing
With respect to our sales and marketing activities, the Antiques Centre York has a strong focus on ‘earned media’.The biggest of which is our regular TV appearances on programs such as Bargain Hunt and Antiques Road Trip.
These shows give us unbeatable exposure and credibility. Contrary to popular beliefs, the crew and presenters of these shows are (almost!) always absolutely terrific. They know our team as friends and we work closely with them to make the best show possible. This helps everyone.
