Salianne is the long-suffering partner of Andrew, who together (with the greatly needed organisational assistance of Amy) run Collier Antiques Ltd. Collier Antiques primarily deal directly with the trade, but open their doors to the public at Battersea Decorative Fair in London three times a year where they boast the most frequented stand at the fair.
Salianne spent her childhood being pushed around antique shops by her mother and this exposure to antiques obviously registered somewhere deep in her subconscious but waited for a couple of decades before coming to the fore. Technically Salianne comes at the trade from a background in the Arts. She qualified from art school, before working as a textile designer to numerous highly established companies such as Liberties, Sanderstons and Heals. Over thirty years ago she left the world of art and textile design to pursue her passion and establish a career in the antiques trade. Salianne is mum to two dogs, several chickens, occasional goats and the odd human.
Andrew is ‘the ideas man’ - well, at least he has ‘an idea’ everyday generally around breakfast time. Not all of these are met with approval, but they do all come from an incredibly knowledgeable background. Andrew started in the trade as a jewellery maker, he also studied gemology and was a manager at the renowned Walker and Hall.
A life-long history buff, it was only right that Andrew should end up in the Antiques trade. As a jewellery maker, he naturally started dealing with antique jewellery, before expanding into an incredibly successful variety of antiques and interior decoration.
Amy facilitates Salianne and Andrew’s (antique) habits… Like Salianne, Amy has also approached the antiques trade from an Arts background with a BA Honours in Photography from Lincoln University. For reasons best known only to Amy she has chosen to complete an informal apprenticeship with the Colliers and has flourished under these dubious circumstances honing her knowledge in the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
Almost every antiques dealer wants ‘an Amy’ in their lives, but mercifully one of her many wonderful traits is her loyalty and so she has joined the Collier’s into their venture with Rufus.

HOARDE VINTAGE ADVICE:
It is the individual Dealers responsibility to make themselves aware of what the Distance Selling Regulation rules contain; these regulations are open to change, may vary and are detailed, so you may wish to familiarise yourself with such via the many websites available to you on this subject.
Contract of purchase is between the Client and the Seller, not the The Hoarde, we are just the introductory agent. Your rights include, but are not limited to the below. You must check with each individual Seller what their own terms and conditions are and what their own purchase and returns policy include. The Hoarde is not responsible for the description, condition or attribution of an item as we do not have sight of any item and do not have physical ownership of any item, but we do endeavour to only allow professional and experienced dealers onto our website. We do not collect payment or hold such unless specifically agreed prior to purchase and then only as Agent do we hold funds, which are held by the The Hoarde until both parties have confirmed such can be released. If such funds are held and an item is returned, release back to the client of such funds, will be subject to the Seller confirming the item has been returned according to their returns policy. Items are not released to the Buyer until the agreed payment is received by The Hoarde. The Hoarde is not responsible for any related bank charges, transfer fees, currency fluctuations or otherwise. For more details on this facility, please contact owner Jane Walton at [email protected]
You have the right to return items purchased via the internet up to 14 days following receipt of the item to the specified delivery address. If you collect an item in person or arrange your own delivery, then this term starts immediataely you or your carrier collects the item (this is to avoid your own carrier sitting on the item for a long time before delivering it).
WHAT WE RECOMMEND:
Always ask for an invoice from the Seller. On the invoice you should have the date of the item, any provence, full description, including any restoration or damage. It should state terms of payment and delivery and returns. It should also show the business name, business address, contact numbers, email address and VAT number if applicable.
You should ask for confirmation of your purchase by email so that you have written proof of the agreed price, any additional charges, eg delivery and if you are having the item delivered, ask how and who will be undertaking it and what the Sellers return policy is.
Ask for email confirmation of what your responsibilities are should you wish to return an item, including re-packing, how you must confirm your desire to return the item, eg email or by telephone and be clear on the Seller's return policy.
The prices indicated for items on this site are correct at the time the item is listed, barring any error by the Seller. However, the Euro and Dollar prices shown are for indication only and may vary as rates fluctuate and you may incur your own bank charges when making payment from abroad.
If a Member is based in Europe, you may need to confirm with them their specific purchase and returns policies. However Distance Selling Regulations apply througout Europe as far as The Hoarde is aware.
Please do not be concerned about the above statements. They are there to help and protect both parties and should help to avoid any disputes by making things clear. The owner of this site, Jane Walton, is always happy to help and assist where possible and clients are very welcome to contact Jane should they need advice or assistance. Being a dealer herself for 16 years, she knows that most dealers are good, hardworking and professional people who understand the rules and how to be polite and helpful to clients at all times. They can help you obtain shipping or transport quotes for example. Never be worried about speaking to a Dealer and asking as many questions as you need to about an item, they will be happy to help you. Please do remember though, that they will always be more receptive to clients who show them the same respect.
For the avoidance of doubt 'Dealer' and 'Member' are the same.
