Welcome to Frogabilia!
We are a Greek/English family-run business established in the UK in 2011.
Since then we have built up a large collection of unique items,hand-picked from
private collectors sales.
Our choice of items is based on quality, craftsmanship, cultural interest and
beauty. We research every single item and aim to provide as much information as
possible about its history and provenance.
Recently we relocated our business to Greece for a better quality of life; in
time we hope to add local treasure to our eclectic chest.
We speak English perfectly, as well as understanding Spanish, Italian,
Portuguese and French, so please do communicate without fear for any questions
you may have. We are here to help and provide any information you need at all
We have been packing and sending items abroad for many years and have
successfully delivered even the most fragile pieces including Venetian mirrors,
carved chairs and arabesque tables.
Customer satisfaction is assured; please do take the time to look at the
excellent feedback we have received over the years.
Please note that the Greek Postal Service is most reliable!
