Mid-Century dealer • Ercol Specialist • Seeking objects of desire

A mid-century shop operating around Shropshire

Sixth link is a mid-century shopping heaven operating out rental units across Shropshire, with the hope to expand. We also take part in major antique and interior home exhibitions, including Manchester, Leeds and London respectively. As the header suggests we are seekers of rare and collectible and desirable items from the mid 20th century, this includes G plan and Ercol and also Dansk design.

A little bit more about me

At the time of writing I am  19 years old, some may call this a 'Gap Year' me on the other hand call it development or even better, being broken into the real world. I like to class myself as a traditional dealer, i love the haggle and love the face to face and the final shake of hands on the agreed price, a bit more than entering bids whilst watching a drama on the sofa at home, call me old fashioned ;)

But anyway, i am a lover of all things modernism and retro chic, this is such things like Ercol and G-plan but am partial to a bit of up-cycling items too! This was emphasized by the debut TV appearance  on BBC 1 on @moneyfornothing, I will leave a link to the video on the page somewhere!

My favorite projects are recovered chairs and also a love for Bay west German pottery!

I will be present at most shows and you can usually spot me in my overalls and a shirt with my long floppy hair, shout River and Im sure I will put down the Dansk chair or sideboard and be lovely to have a chat, mainly an excuse to have a rest and a natter! 

Where can you find me next?

As a trader of mid-century, I am always around the country, the next time i will be out on the road is

    All change @55millstreet! I've had a slight move around in the shop in preparation for @ludlowfood coming this weekend! Lovely studio and #germanpottery including this epic size beauty! And a couple of reductions, just to tease you that little bit more! Lots more antique and vintage throughout; something sure to take your fancy! Enjoy the events taking place in this thriving market town 💛💛💛 #ludlow #ludlowfoodfestival #localtoludlow #market #town #interior #yellow #pottery #design #place #shape #orange #1960s #retro #midcenturymodern #glass #startup #entrepeneur #bbc #moneyfornothing #hay

    Another day at sixth link HQ @55millstreet a fabulous collection of German pottery to come in, along with some true retro studio items. In love with how far this business has come and listening to everyone's support, I've surprised myself how far I've come since leaving @wrekincollege and what I've achieved. Can safely say this is the best job anyone could ever dream of 💙 thank you for the continued support with the recovery and love you mum💙💙 #work #thisisthebestjob #retro #studio #germanpottery #playhard #shrewsbury #albini #chair #colour #interior #softfurnishings #cushions #indigo #purple #design #shape #midcenturymodern

    Another showing in detail of the Conrah vases what I believe to be one of the rare designs on the right and such a beautiful pitted blue colour; all signed conrah and anodised metal for long lasting pop of colour for the home! #vase #retro #miss #midcentury #work #20th design #colour #style #interior #small #teak #wood #metal
