You will be delighted to find that the Centre’s small traditional shop front hides a large and interesting selling space filled with cabinets and individual display areas. There are two antiquarian and second-hand bookshops within with lots of general stock covering history, literature, children’s books, modern first editions, travel, poetry, cookery, classics and a selection of foreign language material, plus a specialist music section with scores and sheet music.
Visitors are encouraged to browse and take their time to choose from the items on offer. There are thousands of pieces including a great selection of silver and silver plate, fine and costume jewellery, ceramics, glass, pictures, maps and prints, postcards, coins, antiquities, pens and desk items, pistols and weapons, oriental, textiles, toys, treen, retro, books, and other curious and quirky items too. With pieces dating from antiquity to vintage and prices ranging from £1 to £500+, there is something for everybody.
Antiques on High also has a thriving contemporary gallery, Crafts on High. Here you will find the work of local artists and makers, including members of the Oxfordshire Craft Guild and the Oxford Art Society. For sale are useful and beautiful objects made of wood, ceramics and glass, original works of art for your wall space and a range of delightful greetings cards. Our original jewellery focuses on beads, recycled work and paper montage. Fabrics abound, including textiles for the home and to wear. Many of the items have an Oxford theme, so make perfect gifts and souvenirs. The gallery is a venue during the prestigious annual Oxford Artweeks festival and the makers are happy to work on commissions.
