With almost 60 years’ combined experience of buying and selling antiques, gold and silver, the pair regularly work together to offer the public an opportunity to sell their heirlooms direct.

Simon said: “Tim and I receive so many enquiries from people asking us to value and buy their antiques, gold and silver that we decided to work together and offer the public a direct opportunity to meet us. We pay top cash prices and have hundreds of satisfied clients, happy to get a great deal.

“This will be the first time we have had an opportunity to visit Fife and we are looking forward to visiting Kirkcaldy and Leslie, Glenrothes.

“We hope people will search their cupboards and bring along their unwanted antiques and forgotten treasures to turn them into cash.”
