Sixth link is a mid-century shopping heaven operating out rental units across Shropshire, with the hope to expand. We also take part in major antique and interior home exhibitions, including Manchester, Leeds and London respectively. As the header suggests we are seekers of rare and collectible and desirable items from the mid 20th century, this includes G plan and Ercol and also Dansk design.
A little bit more about me
At the time of writing I am 19 years old, some may call this a 'Gap Year' me on the other hand call it development or even better, being broken into the real world. I like to class myself as a traditional dealer, i love the haggle and love the face to face and the final shake of hands on the agreed price, a bit more than entering bids whilst watching a drama on the sofa at home, call me old fashioned ;)
But anyway, i am a lover of all things modernism and retro chic, this is such things like Ercol and G-plan but am partial to a bit of up-cycling items too! This was emphasized by the debut TV appearance on BBC 1 on @moneyfornothing, I will leave a link to the video on the page somewhere!
My favorite projects are recovered chairs and also a love for Bay west German pottery!
I will be present at most shows and you can usually spot me in my overalls and a shirt with my long floppy hair, shout River and Im sure I will put down the Dansk chair or sideboard and be lovely to have a chat, mainly an excuse to have a rest and a natter!
Where can you find me next?
As a trader of mid-century, I am always around the country, the next time i will be out on the road is
Nottingham @ Ladybayvintage 24th November

Busy few days putting new bits together and designing the new look! But here are my favourite item in @55millstreet at the moment its Hans Nagel's classic modular candlesticks from 1965, designed by Werner Stoff
Each candlestick is a module that can be mount together with other in your own candlestick design! #steel #module #add #design #werner #work #ludlow #midlands #midcenturyinterior #midcenturydecor
