Overview

Lady Kentmores is an Antique shop with a difference, we stock all those normal antique shop stalwarts from fine porcelain to jewellery but we also are proud to deal in the more unusual side of the trade too from shrunken heads and medical oddities to fairground antiques.This is because owner George Johnson ( TV antiques expert, writer & treasure hunter) has a mission to bring a bit of fun & showmanship to the antiques trade,Every corner of the shop is jam packed with items of curiosity and interest, it is because of this that the shop has featured on television and in the press many times. The shop has also made the finals of the BBC Home & Antiques Best Antiques Shop in the UK!That's not a bad recommendation to have.

Quite an assortment of items on display, but if I’m honest - not great. Thought I would find more typically Scottish things, however that was not the case. A rummage around may unearth something if you have the patience.

Too much Trip Advisor hype for this small shop. Prices are high, inventory is low and unappealing. Treat yourself to the Scottish Antique center down the road for a real treasure hunt.

When we are in this area we usually give this small emporium a browse, you never know what you will see, worth a visit.

What an amazing shop! It's crammed with all kind of stuff. Coins, silverware, old postcards, radios, weird mask... The owner is amazing and knows a lot about all the items.

My wife and I were exploring the town centre of Callander yesterday and came across this little antique shop. Curious, we went inside to have a look. The shop itself is quite small, although they've maximised the use of the space available, as it is...More

It was good to find this shop open as on our previous visit to Callander it had been shut. There is a wide range of items for sale but I think that a bit of negotiation is needed to achieve more realistic prices. There is...More

Has to be seen to be believed. What a curious little shop and modest museum. Well worth the £1 to see a mummified cat and a taxidermy flying fish. What a curious wee place!

Hadn't visited before but popped in this time after seeing the owner on television. Very small but packed to the rafters with curious items.

This is a quirky store that is worth a wee look round although I'd suggest that it is more bric a brac and novelties than quality antiques. Come with sensibly low expectations and you'll be fine.
