About us

About us

We are antique box specialists, with a focus on high quality music boxes, jewellery boxes, sewing boxes, games boxes, tantalus, apprentice pieces, tea caddies and snuf boxes; and we also have a variety of other antique collectibles. 

Our heritage, Mostly Boxes is an independent run antiques shop, founded by the world-renowned antique box restorer and Specialist Gary Munday (See his photo on the main page and in our video descriptions of items). He has a reputation for integrity, expertise, fine restoration and quality. His shop has been established for over 35 years and is located at 93 High Street, Eton, Berkshire, SL4 6AF, UK. 

If you have had the pleasure of a visit, you will know that it is a treasure trove of hand- picked antiques and collectables. It was placed in Britain's top 50 antiques shops by Period Living Traditional Homes Homes who described it as specialising in "..wooden, mother- of - pearl and tortoiseshell boxes, plus decorative items from the 18th and 19th centuries." The shop regularly featured in Miller's Antique price guide as "MB". Also, in 2018 Mostly Boxes featured in the Times newspaper travel section as the place to visit for antiques when in Windsor. 

Moving forward and the future for our antique business, Mostly Boxes Antiques is our online presence and has been for the past 5 years, it features on a number of antique platforms including Selling Antiques.co.uk and LoveAntiques.com. Due to the website's success from April 2019 we will only be online as we intend to close our bricks and mortar Mostly Boxes shop in Eton. This will allow us to focus on high quality luxury items at the lowest price. The website is managed by me (Sarah Munday (Gary's daughter)) leaving Gary, Chris and Dave to focus on restoring and building our stock of beautiful antiques on the website. 

Our customer service: I believe our success is due to my father Gary's knowledge and experience in selecting exceptional quality antiques combined with excellent personalised customer service. My aim with this website is to bring those antiques and personalised experience from the shop online.  So please contact me and let me help you find your perfect gift. 

Thanks for reading, Sarah.
