Meet our Friendly Team!


Richard White, Owner

Richard has been working in the family antiques business for over 25 years. Our loyal customers appreciate his passion for quality craftsmanship and eye for detail.


People trust him to furnish their homes with beautiful antiques of the highest quality.


Rosie is Richard's girlfriend and furniture delivery road trip companion.


She's a singer and a music teacher, so if you hear music coming from the shop from time to time, that's why! Visit her website Happy in Harmony Music to find out more.


Joan White, Founder

Joan is a farmer's daughter, born and bred in Teesdale. She started the family business with her husband David after having her children.


Joan sadly passed away in 2021 and we miss her. Thank you to everyone who has popped in to let us know how much you care.

Jay White, Head of Biscuits

Jay has been on the team for 9 years, working his way up the ladder. He has progressed from getting up at midday to rising at around 1pm.


He knows more about furniture than most chihuahuas. But he mainly deals in biscuits.


We look forward to meeting you!
