From a wee antiques shop in a small village in Scotland to the screens of millions of people in just 18-months!
I didn’t go looking for ‘fame’ and it had to look pretty hard to find me in my wee corner of the Scottish Highlands but thanks to the BBC show, Antiques Roadtrip, I now find myself juggling my career as an antiques dealer, TV ‘expert’ and presenter.
After a visit to our shop in early 2015 I got a call from the producers, a few months after it was broadcast, in early 2016. I was asked if I would consider joining the BBC team of experts!
After 12-months of meetings, shadowing, screen tests and lots of studying (!) I was told I was ‘in’ and joined the legend Phil Serrell for my baptism on the BBC Antiques Roadtrip.
Kilcreggan Antiques came about quite by (bad) luck when suddenly, and unexpectedly, in 2013 my wonderful Dad passed away. I was heartbroken and devastated. Then just 3-weeks later my husband Mark also lost his father to a long battle with cancer.
We walked away from our senior corporate jobs and focused on taking care of our widowed mothers. I’d always loved antiques and had developed a keen eye so my husband suggested we ‘go for it’ – and Kilcreggan Antiques was born. Out of some of my darkest days came a sliver of light. Fate ?
