Restorations which was my original company was formed in 1990 where
I mainly restored antiques. When after about two years this business
started to become established I started to sell antiques and also a
few good quality usable woodworking tools. The selling of tools in the
shop really took off and I started to produce mailing lists. The tool
lists quickly became very popular especially with my emphasis on good
quality usable tools.
the company Inchmartine Tool Bazaar was formed dealing solely with antique
and old woodworking tools. We now are the largest old tool dealers in
Scotland and one of the largest in Britain. We produce 4 tool lists
a year, still with our emphasis on good usable tools although we do
cater for the collector as well. These lists have over 700 tools for
sale, many' of them photographed.
Restorations now solely deals in quality antique furniture and effects
mainly pre 1850. We also provide a first class antique furniture restoration
Inchmartine Restorations changed trading name to Carse Antiques & Restorations in 2010 and at the same time moved business premises to The Rait Antique Centre, Scotlands longest established antiques centre.
