Random Treasure

A Website about Antiques, Auctions and Alchemy


Random Treasure Cover final-page-001

I’m Roger Stewart.  Welcome to my Random Treasure website.

Since early childhood I’ve spent much of my spare time buying, researching and selling antiques, operating on a limited budget and frequenting local auctions and charity shops.  As a result, I have a house full of stuff, and a lot of stories about remarkable objects bought and sold – sometimes with extraordinary and spectacular success in the saleroom.

I have written about some of the the stuff and told some of the stories in my blog on this website and in my new book Random Treasure – Antiques, Auctions and Alchemy.

Random Treasure  is my first book. It was published in September 2017 by The Book Guild Ltd.  Here’s a link to the publisher’s website.

I hope you enjoy your visit.

“I have just finished your book, and can truthfully say I have never got more enjoyment from a printed text. It was gripping from beginning to end, and absolutely fascinating”

“Roger Stewart writes beautifully, with humour and insight . . . Even if you don’t have a particular interest in collecting, this book is well-written, funny and informative. A great read – highly recommended”
