Welcome to Antiques ARAKI

Hello!
 
I am Shizu Araki, the proprietor of Antiques ARAKI. We deal with quality antiques from Japan in Australia. The last few months has seen a lot of changes as we moved and redesigned our website: www.antiquesaraki.com . We are slowly getting there as it’s still under construction but I’d like to restart my blog now to keep you informed and bring you interesting news.
 

Our items are mostly sourced from Japan, and we specialise in Japanese antiques, although some of them have origins from Europe, China and other parts of the world. I had hoped that you’d also enjoy them in Australia, so in 2016 I began to sell them at antique fairs across the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, and other parts of South-East Queensland.

I have many great memories of the time, where I could meet a lot of Australian antique fans face-to-face and make friends with the other dealers at the fairs.

However, recently, I began to feel the limitations of antique fairs, and made the decision to focus our business efforts online as of the first half of this year. This allows us to expand our reach to customers around Australia and even the world.

That is the reason for the new website, and while it is taking longer than expected to build it to a level I am happy with, we are still listing some items on eBay as usual. I will keep you informed with any exciting new developments to the site as it unfolds.

We hope to receive your continued patronage in the future.

 

はじめまして。

オーストラリアにて、日本の骨董を中心にアンティークを取り扱っているAntiquesARAKIの荒木詞鶴と申します。
この度、サイトが引越しをし現在まだサイト制作進行中ですが、ブログを再開したいと思います。
  
私たちの取り扱う骨董は、ほぼすべて日本で入手したものです。オーストラリアでも、日本から来たアンティークを楽しんでもらえたらと、2016年よりゴールドコースト、サンシャインコーストなどのアンティークフェアを周り販売を開始しました。
 
そこで、出会ったオーストラリアのアンティークファンの方、ディーラーとの方々との出会いは素敵なものでしたが、フェアはもう時代にあっていないと感じ、本年2018前半よりネット販売への切り替えを決意しました。
サイトもまだ未完成で、ご不便をお掛けしますが、これからもAntiquesARAKIをよろしくお願いいたします!
