I came across The Highboy by accident on Instagram. What struck me straight away was their brilliant tone of voice, brand personality and style. Their bio read:

'... will change the way you think bout Antiques and Fine art. It's kind of a big deal.'

A CUP OF TEA WITH ANTIQUES BUYER ELIZABETH FELL

I follow a lot of antiques heads on twitter and randomly came across Elizabeth Fell. Elizabeth interested me as she wan't a dealer, but rather an advisor and buyer to private clients, something I'm very interested in myself. Last week I headed over to Battersea Park to meet with Elizabeth at the antiques and textiles decorative fair to have a cup of tea and pick her brains about the life of an antiques buyer!
