THE RYE EMPORIUM is the creation of Jonathan Simpson-Boyall who has held a keen interest in antiques for over 40 years.

Until recently Jonathan was successfully operating Rye’s largest antique shop. He decided to move away from the high street in favour of a large industrial warehouse just a stones throw from the main shopping area. This location offers two things a high street cannot – space and ample customer parking directly outside!

The Rye Emporium offers a vast area to show a stunning collection of eclectic and diverse items at affordable prices sourced from throughout the UK and Europe.


 The Rye Emporium specialises in buying and selling Art Deco, Mid Century, Industrial and Traditional Antiques including: Furniture, Lighting, Mirrors, Rugs, Decorative, Collectables and Objets D’Art.

This website shows a limited selection of current stock. However the warehouse contains hundred more items and new stock arrives daily, so if you cannot see what you are looking for here, please do not hesitate to contact Jonathan on +44 (0)7802 437188.

If you would like to browse, buy or sell, our friendly and knowledgeable team is here to help. For all enquiries, please contact us.
