Beryl, a chartered physiotherapist, took over Mrs Berry's antique shop at No.7 The Quay in 1972 and moved the business to No.3 The Quay the following year. In 1977 she bought No.4 from Commander Wheeler. In 1990 the business moved to the renovated barns in Quay Court and No. 4 was let as tearooms. Beryl achieved transient fame in 1998 when she appeared as a model in Vogue in a feature on 'older beauty'. Michael was an occupational psychologist working for the Ministry of Defence, and joined Beryl in the antiques business when he retired in 1985. He and Beryl specialise in pottery, porcelain, pictures and prints. Michael is writing a book on the "Painters of Huntingdonshire".
