TWO antique specialists who have been trading for over 30 years and have appeared as experts on BBC's Antique Roadshow have opened their own shop in Chippenham.

Lisa Lloyd and her husband Marc Allum opened the doors to Hand of Glory in the Market Place on Saturday morning.

Mrs Lloyd said: "Antiques are our passion, and although I used to have an auction house in London, my antiques business has only been online until now.

"I sell all sorts of things to people across the UK, some even across the world, although we do also have lots of local customers in Chippenham who we hope will continue to support us.

"We wanted our own shop for storage and it seemed like the next step. We saw this became available and we enquired and it all fell into place really. We have spent three months refurbishing and repainting it."

The pair will be selling a variety of antiques from a Roman oil lamp to a Georgian table.
