New website for Shrewsbury antiques shop

Shrewsbury antiques shop It’s a nomad life has launched a new website, with many unique items available on their online store.

The shop, located on Wyle Cop, sells antiques and gifts and collectables from around the world. Specialising in Tribal and Asian art, there is a wonderful range to tempt you – whether you are an avid collector or are looking for a beautiful piece for your home.

The new website, created by local company The Web Orchard, allows you to explore images of the shop and look for items online. Nearly everything sold through the shop is a one off piece, so you really can find something unique. ‘We are so pleased with our new website, which has range of items available to buy online, from jewellery made with ancient beads, to African masks and antiquities’, said Vicky Handbury-Madin, who runs the shop with her husband Sam. ‘There will be items uploaded to the website each week, so we hope to have lots of pieces available in good time for Christmas!’.

The shop, which opened almost a year ago, has often been described as ‘a museum where you can buy things’. Sam and Vicky are over the moon with the response from local customers and from people further afield. The shop was also on television in August, when Sam was filmed for ITV Storage Hoarders, appraising a Tibetan Buddha for a local resident who was featured on the show.
