Collectables Room

The Collectables Room at Emmaus Mossley is a treasure trove of antiques, ornate items, ceramics, silverware, crystal, jewellery and retro finds.

Collectables Room at Emmaus Mossley

If you’re looking for a specific item, a unique gift or something special for your home then there’s a good chance you will find it in our Collectables Room. The room is only open on Tuesday and Friday (10am – 3pm) and Saturday (10am – 1pm).

Inside our Collectables Room you will find an assortment of special items that have been donated to Emmaus Mossley. This includes small antique furniture items, ornate clocks, dressing mirrors, complete tea sets, flatware, barometers, antique fishing equipment, film cameras, retro lamps, pictures and handmade African and tribal art.

Products range in period from Edwardian, Victorian and Art Deco right up to the 60’s, 70’s and more modern collectables. We have a regular stock of antique and collectable items by Beswick, Nao, Royal Dalton and Coalport. We also have a wide range of jewellery items including hallmarked gold and silver items, vintage costume jewellery, antique jewellery, classical brooches and necklaces, rings, watches and cufflinks.

As with all donations we have an obligation to our donors to get a fair price for the item that they have donated to us. The reason that people donate items is to help us raise the money we need to support a community of 24 formerly homeless people. Whilst you can still be sure to find a bargain in the Collectables Room, the prices are slightly higher than you would expect in other areas of the Emmaus Mossley Secondhand Superstore.

Our Collectables Room is run by Andy, one of our local volunteers who is very knowledgeable and always willing to help you find that special item.

“Every day at Emmaus is full of surprises with something new to discover and to me anything old is a window into the past – and as I’m basically nosey I love it! I have now been involved in running the Collectables Room here at Emmaus Mossley since 2010 and have found it to be a wonderful charity to be involved in. The Collectables Room has a fantastic array of rare and vintage items and is a great place to find unusual gifts, so if you haven’t already visited us then come and say hello. One of the perks of running the Collectables Room is meeting new people, and also catching up with my regulars so I look forward to meeting and chatting with you soon.”

Andy, Collectables Room volunteer
