We are Edward and Cassandra Nicholas and we started Dig Haüshizzle in 2010 with no experience at all in antiques. It may have been a slight rash decision on our part, but it was one we both took on with the upmost enthusiasm. We both become very interested in antiques and interiors when we bought our first flat together - a one bedroom flat in a Georgian Square with the ceiling height, wood paneling, sash windows and the details we could have only dreamed. As we already seemed to have a bit of an art collection gathering, our furniture and decorative items were really not up to scratch and so began the hunt and it soon became obvious we were pretty good at finding things. The flat was becoming less of a project and more of a calling. It took almost a year of buying before making the push onto the next stage - we had built a website but had no idea how to get people to it.

As the collecting became more prolific we began loaning items of furniture to pop-up's and other events and also selling a few pieces along the way too. Then in March 2012 we opened up our first pop-up store right opposite Harvey Nichols in Cabot Circus. We were there for six weeks and really had no idea how it would pan out. Armed only with a rudimentary website and a small Facebook following, pre-Cabot pop-up had been a slow time for us. But upon opening the doors on that first day our items started selling, and selling fast. At the end of the six weeks we were left sat on a table on the last day with a handful of things left to sell.
After a slight break to get married eight months later we went all in. We opened our first store in the Christmas Steps arts Quarter in Bristol City Centre in December 2012. It was a fantastic corner store with large panoramic windows and high ceilings. As well as an antique and Interiors store, it played host to Taxidermy Courses, TV shows, late night drinking with friends, music videos and even became a restaurant for a feature film. A year into opening the shop Edd left his job and we were both fully fledged antiques dealers, learning everything as we went. Although I had worked in retail for years having your own store was very different and we both took on an array of new skills. I studied Fashion Photography so photography tutorial was one of Edd's first lessons. We both learned the ins and outs of bookkeeping, decorating, sign writing, graphic design, restoration, wiring and everything else that goes with it. After 5 and a half years of hard but enjoyable work, it was time for a change and we decided to close the store. Don't get us wrong we loved having a shop and it was so rewarding to see our pieces, ideas and visions physically come to life. However as our online business grew, as did our over heads. We decided it was time to take a step away from running a bricks and mortar shop. Opening six days a week and having very little time away from the store gave us a real desire for a bit of a lifestyle change. So in April 2018 we closed the door on the store and made the website our sole focus.

Dig Haüshizzle is now run from our home near Victoria Park in Bristol, and the two of us are out in the van more than ever hunting for exciting things. As well as running the online store,  we can now focus more on interior design projects. Cass is now also styling and photographing shoots for clients and ourselves. We love the creative nature of this business and other areas that we have been so fortunate to learn so much about. So that bring us to where we are at the minute - honing our skills, picking up pearls of wisdom from the incredible people we’ve met along the way, and always trying to improve upon yesterday.

DIG-HAUSHIZZLE own terms and conditions can be read here on their website.  Consumer Contracts Regulations apply.


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).


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 wil 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.
