About Us

Looking For Antiques is a website that has been specifically designed for people looking to buy antiques from reputable antique dealers in a secure environment at competitive prices, and for full-time dealers seeking to sell antiques online to a wider audience.

The initial concept of Looking for Antiques began with a simple yet compelling message, we wanted to offer our customers an intuitive and simple way to Find, Request and Buy antiques online and remove the time and effort of having them delivered.

As full-time furniture restorers, we experience all too often the headache and frustration of sourcing antiques, so we decided to set up Looking For Antiques.
