    Story

    ChinnysVintage is an established business, run by a local trader, Keith, my dad. ChinnysVintage is his passion, and his customer service, knowledge and fair prices mean that business has flourished. Keith has put enormous effort into making ChinnysVintage successful, with stock he could be very proud of.

    Unfortunately, overnight on February 28th 2019 the Antiques Bazaar in Crewkerne was broken into, and ChinnysVintage was one of the units targeted, leaving Keith facing the uphill task of replenishing over £5300 worth of carefully chosen stock. The cabinet was full of Antique and Vintage Pocket and wrist watches as well as fob chains and pens. This break in has been a devastating blow to this sole traders business.

    Keith has spent over 37 years in the Army, he works tirelessly to make a success of all he takes on. He supports charities at the drop of a hat all the time being there for others.

    I'm asking for donations to enable this honest hard working trader to have a fighting chance to invest and bring his stock back up to the standards he sets for himself, and his customers have come to expect.

    If you can't donate, that's okay! However please share this page so people are able to alert Keith Chinn or family to any pocket watches and the like being sold that you may feel suspicious of. Whilst we remain hopeful the thieves will be caught as the police are on the case, he has to be realistic and plan on the almighty task of finding replacement stock!

    Thank you for your time in reading this plea. One thing I am sure of, Keith did not deserve to be treated like this.

    Thank you for reading.
