Minttheshop.com has very quickly become one of my favourite places to buy antiques and collectables. Kirsty Machen, the brains behind the operation, sells everything from furniture and glassware to art and silverware at a steal. What makes this different from regular antique stores is that she only sells her stuff online. New deals are posted Monday to Friday and everything gets sold on a first-comment-first-sold basis. It’s also incredibly newbie friendly so you’ll never have to pretend to know anything about antiques to save face!
