Amelia Skinner opened Phillips & Skinner in 2007 after her collection of rare and unusual objects became too large for the family home. Phillips & Skinner came about after Amelia had spent many hours of her childhood pottering around on Portobello Road in London and in her late Fathers shop, E.S.Phillips & Sons which is now her sisters shop Katrina Phillips. Amelia’s Father was an infamous Antiques dealer specialising in Stained Glass and ecclesiastical antiques.
