London South West, UK - As much as we like the idea of a love that lasts forever, there is something thrilling about a short romance. This Valentine's weekend, a Pop Up shop is open on London's Lillie Road with stock from The Antique Young Guns. A group of young dealers who opened their hearts with a network of support for each other, whilst dispelling the sometimes stuffy image of antiques, the co-founder George Johnson and Antiques Young Guns of the year finalist Lily Trunfull curated the Pop Up.

A time travelling romance, the Pop Up takes you through world adventures of the Georgian officer greeting you at the door with stock ranging from 16th century spears to 20th century erotica. No signage marking pieces from different dealers means that you explore the journey from a French armoire to a Chinese Cabinet, whilst a blowfish lamp blows you kisses. From collectable 70s magazines to decorative antiques, the stock was selected to offer a broad price range and inspire different periods to be grouped together, with George Johnson commenting that antiques can be "cheaper, greener, more fun and more stylish than buying new".

A testimony to Lily Trunfull and George Johnson's concept, before leaving I locked eyes with a Parisian man depicted in an Art Deco piece that gave new life to the 19th century silhouettes that surrounded him.

Open until Valentine's Day, the Pop Up is worth a visit for proof that the most unlikely pairings can make a perfect match.

The shop will be open
Thursday 12 Feb from 10am - 6pm
Friday 13 Feb from 10 am - 6 pm
Saturday 14 Feb from 10am - 7.30 pm
at 315 Lillie Road, London, SW6 7LL
