About A Toast to the Past

"I collect antiques. Why? Because they're beautiful" - Broderick Crawford

A warm welcome one and all to A Toast to the Past, an eclectic online emporium shop featuring Antiques and Curios from a bygone era.

My passion for the past has continually grown over time from attending a small monthly country auction when I was youngster to traveling the length and breadth of the UK trying to find those hidden gems that have become lost and forgotten in time. Browsing Antique auctions and attending fairs is a weekly occurrence now and has developed in to an addiction - I cannot pass a second hand shop without going in and having a rummage!

The interest in Antiques and the past has been passed down the family bloodline for generations, Georgian ancestors surrounded themselves with grandeur and my Great Great Grandmother had an Antiques store in Newcastle but unfortunately I haven't been able to find an archive photo of it yet!

A Toast to the Past contains an array of goods to suit every budget. If there is anything in particular you are after please don't hesitate to get in contact.
