Welcome to the first edition of Mark Monday's. The new blog from Healey Art & Home, sharing with you, every Monday, a focus on one of Mark Healey's favourite products we're currently selling at Healey Art & Home, all which are one of a kind with their own unique story.
First of all, let us introduce you to Mark! As the joint proprietor of Healey Art & Home, Mark's interest in antiques, older furniture, effects, retro and vintage, stems back to when he was a young man.
One of Mark's first jobs was working in a furniture shop, he also shared an interest in furniture with his father. Mark's father, whose job as a furniture representative, exposed him to the intricacies of antiques at an early age, and over time, what started out a hobby evolved in to a genuine passion and talent for antique, furniture and homewares. During the late 1970's and early 80's, Mark also had two antique shops in Birmingham.
Mark went on to college and pursued a career doing other things, but whole heartedly maintained his interest in furniture as he continued to buy and sell products by attending auctions, visiting shops and markets. Mark has been lucky enough to be able to return to his passion now, through the products he sources and sells for Healey Art & Home. it is clearly evident, when talking to Mark, his genuine and profound interest in the history, design and story behind every piece in the shop he interacts with.
We hope you enjoy our new Mark Monday's Blog. It will be posted every Monday evening between now and Christmas. Please follow us and to share our wonderful product stories every Monday. Enjoy!
