ANDREW FROSTE has been dealing all his life.  It has taken him from windswept Park Hall in Lancashire in the 1980s to 'maison bourgeoise' clearances in the Auvergne, via an Art Deco shop in Brighton.  He has an eye for stunning decorative items that often reflect his quirky, fun sense of humour.

Having a degree in the History of Art & Design clearly influences his buying ethos and his 'eye' for style, design and proportion.

Andrew now mostly sells to a few clients he has known for many years, rather than face the hurley burley of antique fairs.  He also has a space in Hemswell Antiques Centre, where he sells more traditional antiques and items for the garden.

If you have any queries about an item, please email or telephone for a friendly, no obligation chat.
