Affordable Quality Antiques & Decorative Arts
"Our homes are so much more than just where we go after work; They are a reflection of who we are, our past experiences and most importantly, our aspirations"
Aaron L Kaufman (Owner/Curator APEX @ Maling)
APEX Antiques is now located at Gallery 11, inside the iconic Maling Road Antique Centre, part of Melbourne's Historic Maling Road Shopping Precinct, in the leafy eastern suburb of Canterbury, just 15 minutes from the CBD and a less than a 2 minute walk from Canterbury railway station.
APEX Antique Traders has been operating continuously since 2005 at various locations and since early 2019 at our permanent home; Maling Road Antique Centre becoming APEX Antiques @ Maling Road where we have been able to offer our most extensive range of Affordable Quality Antiques, Vintage and Collected Old Wares so far.
We offer a constantly changing, curated range of Antiques, Decorative Arts and Vintage Wares, including; Furniture, Lighting, China, Crystal, Art Glass, Militaria, Curio's and much more besides. As well as our Genuine Antique or Vintage pieces, we also offer a very limited range of contemporary décor pieces that may happen to compliment one or other of our genuine items however our Detailed Labels include all pertinent information about each individual item (including date & place of manufacture, materials used and provenance where appropriate) as well as the price for every single item we sell. That way you'll never be left wondering whether you just bought a bargain real McCoy or fell for a clever reproduction. Knowledge is power in the Antique Industry and we firmly believe the more of it we share with our loyal clientele, the better things will be for both as an educated buyer understands why an exceptional item is priced at a premium and equally why an average piece seems so cheap and as a result is willing to pay the "Going Rate" for a good quality piece and leave the average where it belongs (on the shelf!).
Regardless of whether you are shopping for that special piece of statement furniture, that elusive piece of china or art glass to enhance or add to your set, a gift for a loved one or even just out for some heavy duty window shopping, we have new inventory arriving multiple times a week so chances are, APEX Antiques @ Maling Road has the piece for you and our regularly changing curated themes provide some inspiration for your own décor at home while ensuring there's always something unique, fresh and well presented to see.
We feel that being a part of the core group of traders that make up the Gallery holders at Maling Road Antique Centre is a privilege for us and one we have worked very hard to earn. To be able to ply our trade side by side with such an experienced & knowledgeable assembly of professionals is a dream come true but that aside, our customers also reap the rewards of enjoying the competitive prices this kind of close retail atmosphere provides, not to mention the unparalleled knowledge in so many and varied areas of our great industry but most of all we feel the best part is that if for some unknown reason you can't find what you're looking for in Gallery 11, there's a whole "Aladdin's Cave" of other galleries, each with their own specialist areas of focus as well as their general interest stock to browse while you're there and we're sure if you haven't been able to find your hearts desire @ APEX then one of our most highly esteemed fellow traders is sure to be able to assist and for us all, at the end of the day we are happy traders providing you leave a satisfied customer, whether you have gained a unique new item or gained the knowledge you needed that will enable you to make that purchase some time down the line.
On behalf of the APEX Antiques @ Maling Road team; We look forward to helping you find exactly what you're looking for.
