BRACKLEY’S biggest visitor attraction has been shortlisted for an award run by a national antiques magazine.
Following an online public vote The Brackley Antiques Cellar was voted one of the county’s top five most popular antiques centres.
The awards are run by the Homes and Antiques Magazine (formerly the BBC Homes and Antiques Magazine) and the winners will be announced by Kirsty Allsopp during a ceremony at the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair on Thursday, March 8. The cellar is owned and run by couple Debbe Perry and Jim Broomfield.
Ms Perry said after the public vote a lot of customers, dealers and other business owners in the town congratulated them.
She added: “We’ve had a lot of comments which is brilliant, but we also think it’s good for Brackley it brings in so many people.”
Ms Perry is trying not to build her hopes up to much but added: “It’s just so exciting.
“The thing is there’s been so much hard work by everyone at the cellar, we’re always trying to improve things and bring in new stock.”
