From the age of nine, Carl Burge was either digging up Victorian bottle tops or rummaging through jumble sales for early finds. His passion included collecting coins, bottles, stamps & Dinky Toys. Electric train sets were all the rage in the 70’s, but he preferred steam locomotives. After leaving full-time education in May 1985 he went on to Technical College to study ‘Vehicle Body Repair, ‘Engines & Chassis Components & Communication Skills – passing with Distinctions.
He started employment as a trainee Paint-Sprayer/Panel Beater & later went on to restore classic cars & architectural bygones in his spare time. At twenty-one he bought his first home. Common 1A was renamed ‘Peppermint Twist’, something reminiscent of a theme club for contained within its walls was an abundance of collectables ranging from Bakelite telephones to a Wurlitzer jukebox!

The opportunity arose in April 2001 to open a small shop in the grounds of a working Windmill in Denver, Norfolk. A stunning retreat, rich in history & ideal location to sell off some of his collection. Juggling 9 – 5 employment & managing his new business evenings, weekends & bank holidays meant something eventually was going to have to change.

In 2005 he left the motor trade to follow his heart, taking with him 20 years experience & a stronger than ever desire to preserve or restore our glorious historical past.

 It initially needed improving as it failed to work on modern devices & was getting dated in appearance. Ricks knowledge & friendly approach was a refreshing change.
As each challenging task was undertaken he advised the progress on a regular basis, which was greatly appreciated.
The site now represents our company at full strength & this could have only been achieved by someone who works with passion, devotion & professionalism.
