While this scenario can certainly be found, there is also a new breed of antiques dealer and these entrepreneurs are taking over the antiques scene in Europe! There is a group called “Antiques Young Guns” comprise
The Antiques Diva & Co is happy to be associated with this group as 3 of our Diva Guides are members of the Antiques Young Guns! Alys Dobbie is our newest Guide, offering customized tours in London (including the world famous Portobello Market) and Brighton. Our Swedish Guide Daniel Larsson is also a member of the group. Daniel’s knowledge of Swedish & Gustavian antiques is amazing, and his connections in his native country of Sweden are invaluable to our clients when they want to find the perfect pieces while also learning about their history.
One of the founders of Antiques Young Guns is Gail McLeod. The Antiques Diva & Co is lucky to have Gail as our Diva Agent in the UK, as she is extremely well-connected and possesses a vast knowledge of antiques and sources. She is also the founder of National Antiques Week as well as the editor for Antiques Are Green.

The whole concept of Antiques Young Guns is really exciting because it is solidifying the future of our industry. By bringing these young minds together, the synergy that is being created is a powerful force! This is definitely a group that I will be watching with much anticipation to see what they come up with next. If you want to know What’s New in Antiques… you’ve got it – the Antique Young Guns are bringing antiques into the next millennium!
