Andrew Campbell started trading in Antique Silver in the 1970’s. Initially,
Andrew lived in the South of England, travelling the country, searching for
items of silver to buy. Andrew sold these items at various London markets and
antique fairs. Over time, and through selling at a range of venues, Andrew built
up a large and diverse customer base from private buyers to national and
international trade customers.
Andrew enjoyed his buying trips to the North of England and Scotland, making
many new contacts on these rewarding forays. In 1983 Andrew returned to live in
the North East, just outside Newcastle Upon Tyne, the city where he had been
born. This move enabled Andrew to concentrate on sourcing quality items of
silver from Northern England and Scotland.
In 1999 the retail outlet of AC Silver at Graham Smith Antiques was opened in
Jesmond, Newcastle Upon Tyne. From here Andrew continued to build his private
customer base, sharing his knowledge and experience whilst selling quality
pieces of silver either as gifts, or objects of virtu, for both personal
pleasure and investment purposes.
As a result of providing a professional service and dealing in quality items,
Andrew saw his local private customer base grow. Building on this experience,
Andrew set up his first web site in 2002, introducing his business to a
worldwide audience via the Internet. This facility has enabled many new,
international customers to view and purchase goods through the ‘virtual’ shop
door, whilst still receiving individual, personal attention from Andrew.
Due to the success and continued development of the web site, Andrew employed a
fulltime member of staff to support and maintain this regularly up-dated on-line
service. Jane Henderson had many years of management experience and working with
teams and individuals, staff and members of the public and it was envisaged this
expertise would further enhance the service offered to Andrew’s customers.
Now with this third version of the AC Silver web site, and new shop premises in
Jesmond, Newcastle, Andrew’s workforce has continued to increase in number.
Andrew’s intention is to expand and improve his business further: in addition to
offering a wide range of quality silverware at fair prices, AC Silver now holds
a variety of fine antique, vintage and contemporary diamond and gemstone
Andrew takes pride in offering a high standard of service whilst giving personal
attention to all customers, old and new. Please feel free to contact him with
