After 13 years, antiques dealers and BBC Antiques Roadshow specialist Lennox Cato and his wife Susan have decided to concentrate their efforts on growing his shop Lennox Cato Antiques and close the neighbouring Edenbridge Galleries.
Staying in Edenbridge, they will decant into their smaller adjoining shop over the next month or so, having refurbished four new showrooms in readiness. Lennox Cato said, “Running an antique centre has been a real learning curve, it has given Sue and I the opportunity to work with some great people within the fine art and antiques trade”.
The Edenbridge Galleries was the first ‘BADA member only’ antiques centre and soon became a popular destination for those interested in quality antiques and interior design. As time went on LAPADA members were invited to join the collective allowing the number of exhibitors to increase and the opportunity to showcase a wider variety of disciplines.
“We have thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of setting up and running The Edenbridge Galleries” said Susan. “At times we were like one big happy family all working together, but we now feel the time is right to concentrate on us and simplify our business”.
A ‘Consolidation Sale’ is currently being arranged with discounts of up to 75%. Commencing on Saturday February 1, sale stock will be available from The Edenbridge Galleries only for the first week. Thereafter it will be available from both the galleries and online at www.lennoxcato.com for a limited period. Full information can be found on their website.
John Robertson will also take part in the sale, so there will be a good variety of stock at greatly reduced prices. John Robertson’s stock can be viewed at www.jrobertsonfineart.com
Dianne Brick of Amherst Antiques, will continue to showcase her Tunbridge Ware in the new showrooms for the foreseeable future.
