Mr. William MacKinnon has always had the passion for collecting antiques. He made his first antique purchases while at university where he studied music. Even with two degrees in music as well as successful careers in accounting and the hospitality industry, he still decided to focus on his passion. Thus, the Three Centuries Shop was born. Ever since, he has always been a serious collector of French 18th and early 19th century furniture and decorative arts. His antique store continues to feature top quality antique clocks, chandeliers, bronzes, furniture and complementary decorative arts from this period. Every piece in stock is always a wonderful example of its particular period all with an expansive story behind it.
