Typically, there are more than of 2,000 pieces on sale, including furniture, textiles, antique Buddhist relics, handicrafts, headhunting curios and unique jewelry pieces. The store’s huge range of items has been sourced from more than 25 countries, including Tibet, China, Palestine, Peru, Mexico, Vietnam and Turkmenistan. For those who love the excitement of breathing new life into something old and who have a passion for one-of-a-kind items, this is where you need to be.

Your antiques roaming should also take you to Queen Street, a lovely tree-lined area filled with antique stores.
