What makes us tick...........
Our philosophy is to offer an exceptional selection of antiques combined with outstanding customer service. We provide you, our customer with an inspiring, personalized shopping experience. We consistently rank in the Top 10 most visited Antique shops on Ruby Lane ( there are over 2000 shops!) and we have a loyal following of private collectors from all over the globe. Our small team have many years combined expertise and knowledge in both the antiques and the business world. Our flair for choosing the right item for you and your home has helped us to achieve international success.
Established in 2006, Trinity Antiques is a small family business based in The Cotswolds, England (we have Prince Charles and his Sister Princess Anne living just 10 miles away). We search the UK and France for the more unusual antiques, those that are becoming extremely scarce and that will appeal to the private collector. We also bring a touch of individuality to the home owner who is seeking something unique for their interior.
Since opening our exclusive Ruby Lane shop in March 2011, we have gained GOLD status and many, many loyal and wonderful global customers see their feedback below. Google tells us that two thirds of our shop visitor's are repeat visitors, an indicator of our excellent customer experience. We are delighted to have safely shipped our antiques all over the world to countries including USA, Canada, Japan, Germany, France, Russia, Australia, Italy and a little closer to home.... the UK. We use brand new, eco friendly packaging materials as our number one priority is your purchase arriving in excellent condition and of course as Antiques are the ultimate Green product, we try as much as possible to maintain these Green credentials.
We have sold our antique items to American Historical homes, international interior designers, a major USA decorative art collection, a Canadian movie set, exhibitions, Museum's and individual specialists, our items have appeared in a USA music video by the group SHEL, featured in Country Living Magazine, on the cover of a published Regency Costume book and most recently appeared in an interactive children's book by a Russian Publishing Company. We also offer unique gifts for very special occasions. We are honored to have been included in the first ever August issue, page 5 of the Ruby Read e magazine. We have featured in the Ruby Lane November 2014 edition of Harry Heissmann stylemaker's Top Picks.

That was very successful. Thank you once again for your very personal and professional services. Mr L, UK, October 2015.
