Visit the Rabbit Hole

This hidey hole hides its game well, hidden away unobtrusively behind an innocuous ramshackle looking Antique Shop accessible only through a secret speak easy side door off Mavin Street one of the tiny Durham alleys.

The antique shop is not currently open so we are available by appointment only. Please get in touch using the form to book an appointment.

Get in touch


If you have something to sell, we’d love to hear from you.

We travel far and wide looking for interesting and unusual items of all ages, shapes and sizes, so if you have something you think we’d like to buy, please do contact us. We are always happy to help, no matter how large or small the piece you want to sell.

Please send us an email on the enquiry form and we will get back to you.

Looking for something special?

Our stock originates from all corners of the globe and we wander far and wide to bring you a selection of treasures you will not find on any high street.  However, if you don’t see what you want here on the web site, please send us a message using our contact form above. We may have something to fit the bill at Forty Winks, our slightly unusual Guest House & Residence or, if not, know where to get it.

We love a challenge and often source for our customers, so give us a call or send us a message to tell us what your heart desires and we’ll do our best to find it for you.
