Description: Lady Kentmores is an Antique shop with a difference, we stock all those...
Lady Kentmores is an Antique shop with a difference, we stock all those normal antique shop stalwarts from fine porcelain to jewellery but we also are proud to deal in the more unusual side of the trade too from shrunken heads and medical oddities to fairground antiques.This is because owner George Johnson ( TV antiques expert, writer & treasure hunter) has a mission to bring a bit of fun & showmanship to the antiques trade,Every corner of the shop is jam packed with items of curiosity and interest, it is because of this that the shop has featured on television and in the press many times. The shop has also made the finals of the BBC Home & Antiques Best Antiques Shop in the UK!That's not a bad recommendation to have.

Having visited callander yesterday we were greatly surprised to find a little museum inside lady kentmores antique shop. A treasure trove of interesting objects and artifacts that gives Ripleys museums a run for their money! At only £1 to browse around at our pleasure I would happily pay more than that. Somewhere you could go time and time again and... More

As I explained I was sorry we were closed, this was down to other commitments as I was away filming a TV show, but as I told you we always advise people to call before travelling a great distance to visit as the nature of very small independent antiques shops is I can't be everywhere at once. But please feel... More

A tightly fitted shop but only because there is so many amazing antiques crammed into every nook and cranny. The effect is like being thrown into some sort of machine covering every angle of culture and society from the last 50 years. So many highlights but my top one is a miniature version (about 8 inches across) of a newspaper... More
