"Antiques Web Design were absolutely fantastic in helping me set up my French Antique Company website. Sharlotte was incredibly helpful and patient and made it so easy for me to achieve the look I wanted. The support I have received since the site has been up and running has been wonderful too. Highly recommended!"
"After my website of 20 years, crashed, I was struggling to build a new one with a Wordpress package but found they were not suitable to retailing large single item inventories. I was recommended to PH9 by Appleby Antiques. Within an hour of my initial email from Sharlotte at PH9, I had received log in details and was building my new site. The templates offered by them are simple enough to use by a novice but versatile enough to create something special. I have been delighted with the results. In addition there are many useful applications built into the design like stock count and email marketing. Furthermore any query sent to Sharlotte in particular, was replied and if needed, actioned in one working day. In conclusion I would most definitely recommend PH9 for anyone in the antiques business"
"When our old website provider informed us they were shutting down their service, we had to look for a new website provider. I knew ph9 were experienced with sites for Antique dealers and we wanted a simple, uncluttered website - easy to maintain and easy for clients to navigate. Antique Web Design by ph9 did the job perfectly, we had an off the shelf website which is a great value product and easily customised. Sharlotte, Rob and the team are always ready to help, with excellent knowledge of their product; the website does exactly what we wanted it to do and any technical difficulties are sorted quickly and efficiently. Very pleased with our decision to choose ph9."

Butler's Antiques principal, Robin Butler, joined his family antiques business in 1963, and was elected to the British Antique Dealers' Association in 1970. Robin's interest in antique wine accessories began in 1976 when he started to assemble a collection of such pieces for an exhibition as part of the diamond jubilee celebrations of the BADA two years later. The exhibition was a huge success and his subsequent book "The Book of Wine Antiques", a pioneering work, spawned a fresh branch in the antiques collecting world and one equally appreciated by those whose interest is wine. In 2004 Robin decided to make the business of antique wine accessories a full-time occupation, and his "Great British Wine Accessories 1550 - 1900" was published in September 2009.
Tommy Atkins has long been the name given to the British soldier. Called 'Tommy' by friend and foe alike, the British soldier was respected for his bravery and stoicism. With over 6 million men serving in the British armed forces in WW1 most of us have strong family links to that struggle. Tommy was more than a soldier. He was family, a friend or a neighbour risking his life in defence of his country and believing in the justice of his cause.

From simple European hemps woven by farmers in the dark winter months to provide the fabric of everyday life to the elaborate dowry textiles woven by women in the Chinese Minority groups to celebrate the wedding of a beloved son or daughter. Some of the weaving techniques are dying out as younger generations haven't the patience to learn them. Whilst the designs themselves carry ancestral stories going back hundreds of years which could also be lost. Penny likes to find uses for these textiles so their beauty and craftsmanship can still be admired, either by making them into cushions and lampshades or simply mounting them on a frame as a piece of wall art.

Its comforting to know that she is only a call or email away. I couldn't be happier with the service we have received so far. I can highly recommend them."

"Naturally a major concern when we decided to change our website was not to lose but to enhance, develop and maintain these qualities of our identity. As our field of activity crosses over different areas of Art, Antiques, Craft, Galleries, Interior Design, Decorative and Vintage we spent time looking at many different companies who provide online services for professionals in these fields. After considerable research we decided on Antiqueswebdesign by Ph9 because we were very impressed by its clearly defined approach and objectives, proven by the high quality and diversity of its website portfolio.
