Annual Birthday Sale
Our 14th birthday sale is getting very close now.
It will be held on Saturday/Sunday November 4th/5th 2017.
The smart customers call by Canberra Antiques Centre a little BEFORE the sale to check out what's available, then POUNCE first thing on the Saturday morning!
Our previous two sales were our most successful and we'll be pulling out the stops to make sure this year is up there too. The deal is MINIMUM 10% off everything, store-wide, with many other items well in excess of 10%. Haggling is ENcouraged and payment by CA$H (the folding stuff - NOT eftpos!) will always get you the best deal possible.
If you'd like to be personally notified of upcoming sales and other special events, please feel free to submit your name and email address on our CONTACT US page.
Annual Charity Valuation Day
In 2004 Canberra Antiques Centre hosted it’s first annual charity antiques & collectables appraisal day. Donate Life Australia (the organ donation organisation), has been the sole beneficiary of the thousands of dollars we raised between 2004 and 2014.
Each February Canberra Antiques Centre’s dealers donated their time and expertise to discuss/research and appraise the treasures (or otherwise!) brought along, with a $5 per item donation aiding Organ Donation Awareness. Our most recent appraisal day in 2014 raised $750 for the Organ Donation cause.
For the time being, our Valuation Days have been ‘put on ice’, but we may re-introduce them some time in the future. THANK YOU to everyone who took part.

Michael Doulton Visits Canberra Antiques
On Sunday July 18 2010, Upwell Antiques, Canberra Antiques Centre's Royal Doulton specialists, hosted a special event with a very special guest...Michael Doulton, 5th generation descendent of Royal Doulton founder John Doulton.
Michael mingled with around one hundred collectors and enthusiasts, discussing Doulton past, present and future and personally signing special pieces purchased on the day.
Our guests enjoyed complimentary wine, orange juice and nibblies in a buzzy atmosphere which allowed lots of new friendships to be made and stories to be shared.
The day was a huge success, prompting Michael Doulton to suggest we repeat the event. We hope to! For more details...WATCH THIS SPACE.
