If you've had the chance to visit Kalmar Antiques recently you may have noticed some interesting developments happening in the retail space next door. The signage is up and the secret is out that after many months of careful planning, not to mention the uncertainty of a city lockdown, the wheels are in motion for the next exciting chapter at Kalmar Antiques. The long-standing QVB residents have plans to renovate the store, acquiring an additional retail space and expanding their extensive offering of antique jewellery and timepieces.

The new store will feature an incredible front window display spanning over 13 metres that will house antique jewellery and object D'art items from as early as the Georgian era. A specialised showcase will feature historical items that have never been available for public display before. Kalmar Antiques will also be increasing their offering of vintage watches and timepieces, and in addition to this, will be expanding their watch repair services with the addition of a state-of-the-art watchmaking workshop to be built on site.

Professional valuers and gemologists will continue to be available for consultations if you have items you are wishing to have valued or are looking to sell. This expansion will make Kalmar Antiques the largest antique jewellery store in the Queen Victoria Building and a must-see for collectors.  

The Kalmar family have been in business for over 30 years with Charles and Marlene Kalmar commencing trade at the Hyde Park Antique Centre in 1986. After three years they opened a storefront in the Imperial Arcade in 1989 where they traded for nineteen years before moving into the Queen Victoria Building. Their expertise and experience in the antiques trade puts them at the forefront of antique dealing in Sydney. 

Like so many small businesses in Australia the Kalmar's have faced two difficult years of Covid restrictions and lockdowns. Despite these challenges the Kalmar's passion for the antiques trade has shone through. The store expansion is the next chapter for the Kalmar family and is fantastic for the future of the antiques industry in Sydney.
