Give Planet Earth A Chance

Original ian 2

As a professional engineer my career has been focused on problem solving. Now that my wife and I have stepped aside to allow the younger generation to carry the load, we are able to pursue the things that motivate and give us enjoyment.

Antiques have always been our passion and interest so we are now able to enjoy finding things that give us pleasure. We have gained knowledge through years of experience (and mistakes), so we are now able to give people advice about the things we know.

Because many metal antiques have been ruined or destroyed by incorrect polishing, we try to educate people in, and advise people of, the correct polishing techniques.

Eco-friendly products are now available that not only care for the item you are trying to conserve, but also causes no harm to planet earth or its environment. We make our own range of eco-friendly metal polish and offer a professional metal polishing service.

Our mission is to convince more people that antiques are green and that both antiques and planet earth are worth saving. Conservation comes in many forms, and no matter how big or how small your contribution, you can make a difference.

When not involved with antiques I am busy training and competing with my dog Makenna. She is an English Springer Spaniel whose kennel name is Kahill’s Simply The Best. She is trained to search for people and wounded animals and qualified for the 2014 Norwegian Blood Tracking Championship. Unfortunately she did not win but she did end up in the top twenty dogs in Norway.

Invaluable Resource For Antiques

We want your buying experience at our shop to be pleasant, so we tend to understate rather than overstate an item description, to avoid disappointment when the item arrives.

An antique may have been a production item many years ago, but age, usage and patination makes each item unique. You will notice some of our items are matched pairs and we will not sell them separately.

Not all our items are listed, so if you do not find the item for which you search, contact us and we will check to see if we have it in our stock.

We enjoy finding nice things with character, age or pleasant design, and our expanding customer base indicates our efforts are appreciated, so journey through distance and time from the comfort of your own home, and bring back the treasures from another land and from another era.

We are always happy to answer any questions you may have about our store or any of the items we have listed. It is important that you satisfy yourself about us, the item you want and our policies, before you purchase the item.

All Rarity4u policies are described in full and can be seen at our website www.rarity4u.com
