Our Story

We Callaways’ have had Antiques in Thames at 638 Pollen Street for nearly forty years, we began small as a second-hand store.  Thirty years ago, Peter and Ruth Callaway took a leap and imported their first container of English antiques, and so began our international antique trading. 

Son John is the current owner; he is passionate and forthright about this old stuff.   John trades locally, and to date, he has handpicked and imported a further 111 containers of antiques for the store.  Our small dedicated team at Antiques in Thames all love this old stuff too.

We offer affordability, variety and outstanding customer service. Online we exhibit just a taste of our collection.  Come visit us and you’ll see our 5000 square foot store is vast and ever-changing.  Our customers’ say we are a treasure emporium; antiques, vintage and retro eras, ceramics, smalls, country, collectables, salvage and architecture. 

We love it, we live it… researching, sourcing, trading, restoring & delivering.
