Sil Siecker already has years of experience with art and antiques when he meets Anita Wilms. From that moment on, the two of them start travelling together across a large part of Europe. Looking for new brocante and vintage treasures. In a large barn behind the house, they start Brocanteschuur ‘de Boshuuze’ on May 1st 2013. The cosy doorstep sale starts getting more and more serious. When both local and international interest keeps growing, Sil and Anita know they need to set the next step to meet their customers' need.
They find a storefront in downtown Venray, which opens its doors after an extensive renovation on September 5th, 2017. From that moment on, Brocanteschuur ‘De Boshuuze’ grows very quickly. In 2018, an online shop under the same name is launched.
The star of the two sympathetic vintage seekers doesn't just rise in the Netherlands. Abroad, they are a welcome guest, both as buyer and as seller. The shop also needs a new approach. More and more, their focus shifts to real design classics. They notice that the market is ready for a transition to a more exclusive offer. A name change is essential in this regard. The name Brocanteschuur ‘de Boshuuze’ is not understood abroad, besides the fact that the focus has shifted from brocante to vintage design.
From January 1st, 2020, Timeless Art is the new company name. Their quest for unique Design Classics, Vintage en Antiques continues. Demand and sales are mostly growing abroad. The result is that the physical store becomes a burden for the business. Required opening hours in the shopping street and the lack of storage convinces them halfway through 2020 to search for a different location.
At the end of 2020, the company moves to a stylish showroom on Stationsweg 86 in Venray. Here, they are open on each first Saturday of the month and by appointment. This way, they have more time to travel across Europe, searching for new design classics. All items are professionally photographed and immediately posted in the online shop. Even though sometimes the products have already been sold through social media before they reach home.
From Maastricht to Amsterdam, Londen or Paris, and from Hong Kong to Chicago, Timeless Art ships worldwide!
