She is the owner and operates a website called Kilcreggan Antiques in which her store supplies antiques and collectible articles both from the shop as well as their online retail website.
Her career in antiques was a result of a family loss. With her husband, they worked in the marketing world and a big, heart-breaking change in their family circumstances a few years ago, made them step away from life for a while. When they went back to normal, they opened a small antique shop in the village and one-day Antiques Roadtrip came visiting with Paul Laidlaw. She was asked to join the team, and that’s is how she became part of the team.
She got involved in Bargain Hunt when she had been on Antiques Roadtrip for 2 years when was approached by the Bargain Hunt Team and asked if she would like to get on board. That is how she took the opportunity. She does collect Georgian glass mainly but her passions are Georgian Glass, Art Glass, Jewellery (especially Mourning Jewellery), and the weird and the wonderful!
