Lisa Lloyd’s antiques shop

In 2019, Lisa opened the antiques shop Hand of Glory in Wiltshire.

Lisa’s main motivation to open a shop was to find a home to a large collection of items and furniture she’d collected throughout the years. Prior to the launch of Hand of Glory, Lisa had sold things online but always dreamed of an actual space where she can physically display items.

Speaking to Antiques Trade Gazette, she explained:

Selling online is great and when buyers know what they want it works really well, but many people like to browse and have the hands-on experience. So trading from the shop and my website will work really well.

At her shop, Lisa offers furniture, costumes, ceramic objects, mirrors, as well as items for the garden such as benches and stone columns.
