Memorial Service - Jill Phillips
Thursday 22nd of October 2020

Sunday 25th of October at 2pm, the antique dealers of Queensland will get to pay their last respects to Mrs Jill Phillips at a memorial service at Victoria Park Golf Complex.

Jill passed away during strict Covid 19 funeral restrictions, which meant the industry couldn't pay our last respects at her funeral. Jill was not only Queensland's longest licensed second hand dealer, but over time she became Queen of our industry. The knowledge and information that Jill has passed on to our generation over the years has been invaluable. Jill being the last of her generation means a generational effect has now taken place in our industry so it is now up to our generation to lead our industry into the 21st century and this new digital era.

Jill Phillips
Sunday 28th of June 2020

Last Friday night on the 22nd June 2020, our incredible industry lost its greatest icon, Mrs Jill Phillips of Discovery Corner, Clayfield. Passing away, aged 84, Jill was Queensland’s longest serving antique dealer, holding the record for the longest Second-hand Dealer’s Licence in Queensland.

I remember as a child going to Isle Love Auctions and Jill would show up and run all the dealers up in price as well as buying all the good quality antiques herself. She would set the price on antiques one way or another. She preferred to deal in quality Rosenstengel furniture as well as fine china. Jill lead the way in our industry being the power broker behind the Queensland Antique Dealers Association - Q.A.D.A.

We all called her the Queen of our industry and was the last active dealer from her generation. It now appears that a generational affect has now taken place in our industry. We must honour all the old guard that have passed away and thank them for the great knowledge and wisdom that they have passed on to our generation.

Friday 10th of April 2020

Please be aware that due to the Covid-19 Virus some dealers have put their antique shops into hibernation. Some antique dealers have also changed their opening hours - I myself have put all Murphy's Antique Restorations furniture stock online and made the weekends as 'by appointment' only. We would like to ask you to maintain the required social distancing when entering our shops or dealing with the restoration staff. We suggest you call before visiting premises to ensure opening hours and limiting contact as much as possible. I would like to thank all our Industry Customers for the continued support and ensure you we will survive this health crisis. Stay well and stay safe. Meade Murphy Murphy's Antiques and Restorations

Dedicated to Graham See
Wednesday 9th of May 2012

16.06.1943 - 07.02.2012

Graham See one of Queensland's most loved & revered Antiques trade ambassadors, was born & raised on a family sugarcane farm at Bargara & had a career as a Secondary English teacher before beginning his Antiques trade life at Clayfield's Brisbane Antique Market, soon after it was established in the late 1970's. Graham's love of the arts & his passion & enthusiasm for acquiring & sharing knowledge, soon saw him as the face of Brisbane's earliest Antique Market.

Renown for his warm, friendly manner & wide spectrum of expertise in antiques, historically & culturally, the "Market" became an iconic institution with a national reputation under Graham's Directorship, for twenty-five years.

He held office in the former Brisbane Antique Dealers Association, & the current Queensland Antique Dealers Association for many years; & was responsible for changing the legislation allowing the exemption for Antique Dealers to trade on Sunday for years before the more recent Sunday trading laws were introduced.

Graham shipped out volumes of quality British and European antiques in the "boom" period of the eighties and nineties at the peak of antique furnishing & collectables's popularity. He memorably hosted the largest collection of Doulton Lambeth Pottery to come to Australia, & was considered a learned exponent of this 'School' of wares nationally.

As sad as it was for the vast legion of customers & collectors at the closure of Brisbane Antique Market, additional generations who were kept amused in the downstairs playroom as youngsters, while parents browsed for curios, now nurtured in the appreciation of fine antiques, joined with their elders, following Graham's move to private premises in his two consecutive Albion locations under his new singular entity of Brisbane Antiques Pty Ltd.

Since 2006, the Crosby Road address, a final goal before retirement, was wrought from an uninspiring warehouse, transformed into a large retail antiques venue, joined 'under one roof' with his wife Pamela Shannon (Banbury Cross Fine Antique Jewellery).

His energy & passion for antiques, love & empathy for all-comers, generosity to colleagues in all matters, humour, and love of sharing a good story was legend, & visitors more often greeted with the offer of a 'cuppa & an eager tale of the latest find, than a sales pitch.

His sudden illness & passing has left a raft of long-time customers, & colleagues saddened and bereft at the loss of a good and genuine friend, & the antiques trade... a vital & vigorous "mentor for the profession"
Pamela Shannon

Graham, I never got to say goodbye, or thank you for mentoring me from such a young age. You are gone now, but you will never be forgotten.
Meade Murphy.
