The South Asia Collection Museum and Shop or as many might know, Country and Eastern, is owned and run by Philip Millward and his wife Jeannie.
They bought the Old Skating Rink, an architectural gem, in 1993 and restored it. The result is a truly unique shopping experience. The building is an Aladdin’s cave of beautiful decorative furnishings based on the traditional crafts of the countries they import from including India, Pakistan, Thailand, Indonesia, Burma and China. With oriental rugs, hand printed table and bedlinen, clothes, small furniture items, and a wide range of traditional crafts such as papier mache work, bronze statues of South Asian deities, jacquard loom scarves, stone carved objects, handwoven shawls and Christmas decorations.
