Local area man Allen Acworth has been operating his Semaphore business for 30 years. Can you guess what it is?
It’s the Acworth’s Antiques & Quality Furniture store of course!
Located on (you guessed it!) Semaphore Road, Allen has a knack for selling antique furniture. At the time of opening his business, no one else had opened an antique store in the area, so he was branching out and doing something different.
With a wide variety of wooden furniture in particular, there are a lot of beautiful pieces in his shop. If you’ve got a thing for clocks, it’s definitely worth stopping by! Not to mention the large range of 19th-century items from around the world. It seems there’s a bit of everything to be found in this Semaphore antique store.
When we had a chat with him, he mentioned that he loved Semaphore because it was a “nice neighbourhood and a great place to live”. That’s what we love to hear! He thrives off of selling the public a wide variety of classic and antique furniture options.
His customers have said that they love Acworth’s Antiques because it’s not cluttered like most antique shops, and instead everything is set out like it is valued and loved. It also has a reputation for being well priced, which is always good to hear!
There’s plenty to be found in Allen’s shop, so next time you’re on the hunt for something antique, make sure to stop past!
