“I love history… everything is inspired by history, so that’s why I love vintage and antiques.”
Antiques Young Guns U.S.A. is an organization of the finest purveyors of antiques who’ve not yet entered their fourth decade.
Antiques Young Guns U.K. was founded by noted antique experts Gail McLeod of Antiques News & Fairs, George Johnson of Lady Kentmores, and TV presenter and author Mark Hill in 2011 to foster a new, younger audience’s interest in antiques. It has garnered much success in Europe and, to date, the program has attracted hundreds of young professionals.
In 2015, U.S. Antique Shows worked collaboratively with the U.K. group to bring the incredibly successful program stateside. Antiques Young Guns U.S.A. was born to follow the same principles as its U.K. counterpart, promoting growth, education and exposure to those in the antiques, art and design trade, 39 years old or younger.
