About Us


Gillard & May Welcome to the blog of Gillard & May. We sell vintage, antiques and collectables. This is very much in keeping with the current trend to re-use and recycle, as all of the items we sell have previously been pre-used and pre-loved! In our blog, we will try to keep you up to date with our attendances at antiques fairs as well as well any other interesting news we may have. We hope you enjoy reading our blog and why not visit one of our online shops - either here on our website, or on Etsy. Thank you for dropping in and we hope to do business with you soon!

Antiques & Collectors Fairs

Posted by Linda May on Thursday, November 1, 2012,
Last Sunday (28th October) we were at the Event City Antiques & Collectors Fair next to the Trafford Centre in Manchester.  We had a very busy day and both sold lots.

This is so that Martyn can concentrate on keeping our unit at Holden Wood Antiques Centre properly stocked with nice furniture and collectable items.  And so that Linda can ...
