Woodbridge Antiques Centre
21st March 2012
Woodbridge Antiques Centre is modern, surprising and endearing – in short, it’s unique.
It has everything going for it, starting with its wonderful location in the charming and historic market town of Woodbridge in Suffolk. Then there is the bright and clean interior, the wonderfully varied stock, not to mention the friendly and enthusiastic staff who’ll ensure your experience is an enjoyable one. Little wonder then that the Centre recently made it to the final 5 in the Homes and Antiques magazine ‘Best Antique Centre’ competition!
It is the perfect place to go hunting for antiques if you’re a collector or for special gifts, not only for the quality of the pieces but also for the experience itself! The Centre breaks from antique shop tradition with well-labelled pieces that are beautifully displayed, providing a real breath of fresh air. The layout of the showcases encourages a natural and steady flow to the shop, and with pieces highlighted in their own right one finds oneself drawn to them.
The Centre reflects the vibrancy and passion of its youthful proprietor Natalie Smith. She opened the store at the age of just 26 with a clear vision. “From the beginning I decided that the appearance of the centre and the standard of the pieces were the most important aspects. The aim was to have a clean, bright feel to the shop, full of well-presented, quality items at affordable prices.” And just over four years on, the response to the Centre has been overwhelmingly positive. Clean, well-lit glass cabinets encase the wares of over twenty five dealers, with a variety of pieces including antique glassware, antique silverware, antique and fine jewellery, vintage costume jewellery, vintage telephones, clocks, antique pocket watches, pottery, porcelain, and much more. The Centre prides itself on quality and there is certainly a plethora of it, with the stock changing constantly, so there’s every reason to come back again and again.
