Caroline is sorting out the antiques.

Caroline has been selling antiques for nearly 30 years and it’s been 3-4 years since she came to Jacob’s Antiques Centre. She says, “Items here range from £1 to £500, and it’s also fun to see younger people come in every day, which is what makes my job so enjoyable.” It’s also nice to look at the antiques every day and remember something from the past, she jokes if it prevents Alzheimer’s.
