Our History

Valentine’s first appeared in Bendigo as a furniture and goods store when Fred Valentine opened the shop on Queen Street in May 1947. Fred Valentine passed the business along to his son Allan, who ran the business with his wife Joy from Queen Street and then a new store on Hargreaves Street, which opened in the old Favalora family bakery at 369 Hargreaves Street in 1984. Current Director, Peter Valentine was raised around the business at its current location, and took over the reins from his father Allan in 2006.

Valentine’s Antiques has a rich history and is responsible for buying and selling furniture over many years from and for some of the country’s most important homes, including the glorious gold rush mansions of the City of Greater Bendigo, including Fortuna, Ravenswood and Lansellstowe.
