Back in the summer of 69...London was swinging, the music was happening and all was fab and groovy. Out of that Canonbury Antiques first incarnation on - then an important area for antiques in London - Islington s Blackstock Road was occuring. We take a look at that exciting time and the origins of the business.

Below we hightlight some of our favourite recent additions. Wherever you are in the world, have a great weekend and hope to see you soon at Canonbury HQ, Hertfordshire / North London.
