Oh for Acorn Antiques!
IMUST applaud your leader of February 15. When I became an antiques dealer more than 30 years ago, the ideal was to trade in the traditional manner from a shop or showroom. Many great collections have been formed in this way, but the birth of the internet has taken away as much from the trade as it has given. I for one would long to see a Victoria Wood-style Acorn Antiques shop on the high street. Where are Miss Babs and Mrs Overall when we need them? Tim Hogarth, North Yorkshire
