Rachel’s & Michael’s Antiques opened November 14th 2015, right in the heart of Clifton Village on Princess Victoria Street.
You can see the large no. 30 sign hanging above it’s door, close to the Mall turning, with it’s freshly painted white exterior and blind encompassing the emerald green lettering used in both their previous shops.
“Rachel’s” of North street Bedminster was established in 2000 and her father, Michael, of “Michael’s Antiques” has had various shops in Bristol trading for over 50 years.
Rachel and Michael have both appeared on numerous Antique Road Trip episodes including celebrity specials starring Myleene Klass, Michaela Strachan and Martin Offiah, who all went on to have much success at auction with their pieces.
Rachel’s & Michael’s Antiques have supplied period props for TV shows such as Being Human, Casualty and Poldark. They have also furnished many pubs and restaurants. These include: The lounge, Coffee 1, The Ox, The Milk Thistle, Amoeba Bar and Bristol Thali Co. to name a few.
The shop is packed with a huge variety from Antique to Retro and Collectible to Quirky; all sparkling, accessible and fabulously displayed, with clear and affordable prices.
A lot of the stock is sourced through House Clearances, however Rachel and Michael are also looking to buy directly through the shop and are particularly interested in: Costume Jewellery, Antique Bric a Brac and small items of Furniture.
