Our Experience

The story of Declans

What started in 1967 as a passion for antiques evolved from a market stalls and international trading, to various shops in the Yorkshire region including the well known Declans of Wakefield. Now more than 50 year later the business will focus on the online business supported by a small shop and storage presence. Declans welcomes your enquiries and appreciates your ongoing loyalty.

The story

What was once a car showroom became the new Declans Furniture and Antique business in 2000. Long before we could promote the business on the internet and facebook it was advertised in the Wakefield Express and gained a reputation as the go to place for a new piece of furniture or beautiful collectables.

The story

The face of the antique trade was changing with the emphasis on the development of the large antique fairs. We attended the larger ones across the country, We were there before Bargain Hunt even started but have subsequently been filmed several times.

The story

The business progressed to a small shop in Castleford West Yorkshire. From here we sold large quantities of goods to the foreign trade from Holland and Europe and beyond which was burgeoning at that time as well expanding our private customer base.

The story

As a young man in 1967 the owner of Declan’s dreamt of creating an antiques business, with a strong entrepreneurial spirit a thriving market stall business was started selling small collectables and antiques.
