Celebrating a decade of success

Pushkin Antiques, located on Tunbridge Wells High Street, threw a party for its loyal clients and friends at the end of last month to celebrate its tenth anniversary.

“In every one of these ten years which have passed since we started our business, we have seen everything – achievement and disappointments, highs and lows. But one thing we never did was give up,” founder Alexander Pushkin told guests.

While guests enjoyed flutes of fizz and canapés he explained how Pushkin started in his ‘small bedroom’ with just £4000 of savings. Alexander and his mother arrived in the UK in 1994 when he was just 8 years old.

“I always believed there must have been a reason why we came here with nothing more than a suitcase and a few hundred dollars to our name.”

Alexander also paid tribute to his wife: “I couldn’t have done any of this without the support of my amazing wife Olga who has always supported me every step of the way, putting her goals and ambitions second to mine, realising my weaknesses and making them her strengths and at the same time raising our two most amazing children.”

Alexander also thanked his ‘incredible’ clients saying: “Your belief in my knowledge and taste gave me the confidence to reach heights I never thought were possible.”
