Patrick Burke sells small decorative antiques online from Strandhill, Co Sligo mainly into the US market. He started his business in 2007 following up on a lifetime interest in antiques. The business’s success is down to the promoter’s specialist skills and knowledge of selling product on-line which requires technical know-how in computers, photography and an ability to describe items in a clear and informative way. Since setting up his business in 2007, he has built up an extensive network of agents and dealers and individuals that he can contact to source products.
