Dear Mark
Thank you for the painstaking professional work on the fireplace. It is hard to see the difference. The photographs show very well the extent of the damage and the steps in restoration. We are very grateful.
Best wishes

Recently I found Mark pleasant and diligent,imperfections in furnishings soon vanish when he gets to work,the antique shop is a quaint sort of converted barn full off high quality stuff ,well worth a look if your in the area….

Just taken delivery of our beautiful Art Deco bookcase. Was slightly apprehensive about buying a piece of furniture we had only seen in pictures, but needn’t have been as the bookcase looks even nicer in real life. Mark was very prompt in replying to our emails regarding the item and I will definitely be making frequent return visits to the website to look for other Art Deco items for our 1930s home. Would definitely recommend.

Just received the lovely silver plated change purse. So very pleased and it was even more beautiful than described. I simply love it. Just wish I was in the UK to purchase larger things from your shop, i.e. furniture. In the meantime will keep browsing your site.

Delighted with both restored tables; both were quite badly marked now looking perfect (and not over restored). Thank you also for finding the little bureau handle bolt for us. Our search had lasted years!

Dear Mark
I am very pleased with the Victorian nursing chair I bought from you. The description and photos on the web site were very helpful & you answered my further questions promptly and in great detail. Delivery was quick and the chair arrived on the day promised.

Hi Mark,

Just sending a huge thank you (couldn’t get through on the phone!)
The wheelbarrow has arrived today, it landed 5 minutes before they were doing that scene in rehearsals, so I was able to take it straight in to the director.

It’s gorgeous, and perfect, thank you for all of your help,

Kind regards,

Mark – The baton arrived bright and early Monday morning. It is in beautiful and intact shape. Thank you so much for working with me and for taking such care with its handling.

I live in London so buying an antique table from Scotland without seeing it and having to rely on the pics online and the Dealer was a bit scary. But after speaking with Mark on the telephone erased all my fears. Mark arranged for the delivery of the table which came on the day promised and the table was exactly as he described. I would recommend Sunnyside Antiques to anyone and will be viewing the website regularly…… Thank you Mark.

Hello Mark

The kist arrived safely this afternoon. I had been a wee bit anxious buying sight unseen but after a lot of hunting this is exactly the chest I was hoping for.

So many thanks

With Kind Regards

Goods received in good order – not surprising as it is the best packaging I have ever seen – it took me twenty minutes to unravel – the nightstand was all as described – and we are very pleased with it. Many thanks. John

I’ve received the item and its not been damaged at all which is good.

It really is a nice little item which looks untouched.

Thanks for the background on the piece, it makes it more interesting to know where its come from.

I will be checking your website regularly now for more interesting items in the future.

Nice doing business with you.

The papier mache snuff box arrived today. Thanks for the speedy delivery.

It is a nice box, indeed and will be a great addition to my collection. I will send you a picture of it in the collection in the coming days.

Thanks again.

As I said in my last e-mail, I am delighted with my shade.
Due to medical appointments, I only got a chance to really look at my shade in the proper light yesterday, and it is not white, or cream, it is in fact the most beautiful colour of pale green brocade, not unlike the “Apple White” emulsion paint, it’s just perfect.
Mark, you should have gone to Specsavers. Ha, ha.

Goods received today.
Quite exciting, just like Christmas. Lampshade met all expectations, perfect.
I knew it was for me the first time I saw in on the television.
Thank you Mark for all your help, and patience.
Best wishes,

Had a number of items restored and service is first class. The quality of restoration is excellent and Mark is knowledgeable and experienced. My items were collected and returned exactly when they said they would be. I would thoroughly recommend Sunnyside Antiques and will be using them again in the future.

Quite excellent craftsmanship and a love and understanding of furniture and other pieces. I have used Sunnyside on a few occasions now and am going for another. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them. They’re not only reliable and trustworthy but a real pleasure to deal with.

Elaine Barr wrote:

Hi Mark, Thank you for a great job. I am so pleased with my dining table and chairs… They look fantastic, I will certainly be recommending.

Simon Barratt wrote:

We have had several pieces of furniture restored by Sunnyside over the last few years from a ‘modern antique’ elm table from the 1960s through early 20th Century arts and crafts chairs and even a tiny ‘apprentice piece’ dresser. I every case the workmanship has been first class and the end result excellent, leaving the pieces looking authentic and not over restored. I would recommend them to anyone with furniture needing a mend or just a spruce up.

Thank you for all your help with the cupboard. The courier did help me bring the pieces inside the front door, so that was great.

All best,

I would recommend Sunnyside Antiques to anyone needing a friendly local French polisher & furniture restorer. A friend knocked a full mug of hot coffee all over my dining table, it ended up badly marked. I looked through Yell. Com and called Sunnyside Antiques asking for help, Mark came & viewed the table, he was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and I arranged for him to restore the table. I was very pleased with the cost and results of this service.

Renovated furniture looks superb!
Many many thanks for the great job that you did on my sideboard and table. They’re now looking the way they should, and the finish is superb.

Fantastic find!

We have just bought some of the most beautiful pieces from this shop/site. We had been looking for ages for a certain Georgian piece and found it on this website. We then fell in love with two other pieces. The service was really friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful. Would definitely recommend for quality and value. A brilliant find! A and L
