What makes a good antique shop?

In short the key to a successful antiques shop is a wide range of antiques at fair prices and supported by a good website that is informative and easy to use.

It is considered that Tudor Rose Antiques meets these criteria. They are based in Petworth, West Sussex ENGLAND, UK. Here follows a description from the owner.

We supply a wide range of antique fine furniture and country furniture along with painted and decorative furniture. In addition we have antique mirrors, antique metalware including everything for the fireside, antique paintings and prints. Finally we have antique silver. All at affordable prices and with the reassurance of dealing with honest traders who are members of the Petworth Art and Antiques Dealers Association (PAADA).

Antiques are often purchased online (payments by credit card during a phone call) and delivered worldwide by specialist and safe antiques couriers.
