My name is Rob and although I sell some traditional antiques my main interest is musical instruments. I particularly like guitars. It is my aim to stock a variety of interesting, mainly vintage guitars. I enjoy renovating and setting up old instruments that would otherwise be unplayable.

Venetian Glass has been made for over 1500 years on the Venetian Island of Murano, and so it is most famously known as Murano Glass. This became Europe’s elite glassmaking centre in the 15th and 16th centuries.
It is famous for vases, chandeliers and mirrors and the multi-coloured glass called “millefiori” is extremely beautiful. (This word is a combination of the Italian words “mille” (thousand) and “fiori” (flowers). Millefiori paperweights are very eye-catching because of the many colours appearing in them and they make a perfect gift also popular as a gift idea is the classic animal figures. In our cabinets at The Old Mill we have a vast selection to choose from at very affordable prices starting from £25.Read More

It has been an exciting time for us since the closure of the Auction Rooms last October, as this has given us much more time to concentrate on the Antiques Centre. We have been busy painting, decorating, refurbishing and expanding all of the 4 floors in our building, which is now looking bright and inviting for you to come and look around.
The Antiques Centre is situated in the Low Town area of Bridgnorth adjacent to the banks of the river Severn and just a few hundred yards from the quayside.
So, why not pay The Old Mill a visit and at the same time spend a day in Bridgnorth exploring this lovely old market town.
We have our own award-winning restaurant on site on the first floor (Charlie’s at The Old Mill) where you can have a light snack, enjoy a lazy lunch or take tea and cakes in the afternoon to round off your visit.
We hope to see you at The Old Mill very soon…………..
Our town is, if course, home to the hugely popular Severn Valley Railway and it is therefore not at all surprising that we see a good number of railway enthusiasts come through our doors in the middle of a rail trip to Bridgnorth.
But they are not the only people who buy railway memorabilia, we also get the occasional shopper AND often the die-hard expert in search of vintage railway items.Read More

In fact, adding a vintage item to a contemporary setting may just transform the entire look and feel of a room, making it more personal and unique.Read More
