Since opening in 2008 The Antiques Diva® & Co has become Europe’s largest antiques touring company, offering custom, private one-on-one antiques buying tours in 8 countries to antique dealers, interior designers, building and landscape architects, hotel and restaurant designers, and shop owners. Our team of 18 locally based Diva Guides are well-versed in the local culture, language, and best local sources for antiques – whether that be the local flea markets, antique warehouses or private, by-appointment-only dealer homes and antique stores. The Antiques Diva & Co offers special to the trade services, oriented specifically for design industry professionals.
We introduce you to our secret sources – antiques dealers who aren’t online, only open their doors by invitation and conduct business by handshake.
Each antiques shopping tour is custom-planned according to the type of inventory you are looking for. We work with your schedule and budget to maximize your time in Europe.
By custom planning a tour to your specific needs and desires, we are saving you time.
When you tell us the type of products you’re interested in, we can then take you to specific dealers who specialize in that product and style.
We also will help negotiate the best trade price possible for your purchases. When we walk in the door, we bring the buying power of not one client but the strength of all our clients.
Vendors recognize our buying power and know we mean business, and give us the best pricing.
