All the magnetic appeal of a good rummage in the attic is contained at Sheppard’s Gems From the Attic sale in Durrow next Tuesday.

The sale is composed of 700 lots from the attics, stables, and storerooms of important clients throughout Ireland.

On offer are one-of-a-kind treasures, decorative objects, furniture, rugs, glassware, art and collectibles, all at very attractive price points.
