Welcome to Parade Antiques and Collectables online store!
Parade Antiques and Collectables was founded in 1997, and has been trading on the Barbican, Plymouth’s historical harbour ever since. We are best known for having the largest selection of military antiques in the South West of England. In 2003 we moved to our current premises, a large 2400 square feet (260m2 ) 17th century warehouse, which houses over sixty display cabinets containing a massive collection of artwork, china, glass and ceramics, antique furniture, silver and jewellery, coins and medals, toys, film and TV memorabilia and much more!
The shop also doubles as a “Curios Museum”, and houses items of significant historical interest, such as Charlie Chaplin’s first worn tramp suit, Hermann Göring’s Luftwaffe leaders uniform, the Duke of Wellingtons Funeral Banner and Joselito’s (“El Gallo”) Matador suit to name but a few. Also displayed are mannequins wearing uniforms from different nations and conflicts, huge sci-fi creations (such as our full size Dalek and Cyberman from “Dr Who”), wildlife models, and so much more it has to be seen to be believed!
We cater for all budgets, from £1 to £150000 and can accept credit card payments in store. We are committed providing a great customer experience, and try to ensure that all items are labelled with an accurate description and price, any known fakes or forgeries will be removed or sold as a copy and any items that are damaged or restored will be marked as such. We do permit modern items or reproductions if they are deemed to be collectable and not intended to deceive. We are always available to advise customers on anything they wish to buy (or sell) and allow them to handle the items. We guarantee our goods as per their description and will refund if this is deemed to be incorrect.
A lot of our stock is in the process of being added to the online store and may not be on display, so please contact us and enquire if you’re after something, and hopefully we can help.
