The Bruneau Family does not run your average antique store. Antique dealers and proprietors Kevin and Beth Bruneau have been in the antiques business for over 20 years. Kevin is a licensed auctioneer and travels literally hundreds of miles a week seeking out antiques and rare finds. He has become an extraordinary treasure hunter whose keen eye for quality, value and authenticity has earned him a stellar reputation for honesty and professionalism. Beth, also a fine art enthusiast, divides much of her time between finding leads for Kevin and working with special education children. Bruneau Antiques is extraordinary as both an upscale "brick & mortar" gallery located in Cranston, and foremost, as an online auction gallery.
As an expert dealer and eBay seller, Kevin Bruneau has accrued an ever-expanding network of dealers, appraisers and auctioneers from around the country who bring him their extraordinary leads on unique investment-quality art and antiques. Those pieces are then listed on the Bruneau Antiques website or eBay auction page. Kevin is always in the market to acquire Fine Art paintings, sculpture, bronze, porcelains, American & European furniture, Estate items (including fine gold, silver and platinum jewelry), American Folk Art, Coins, Stamps, Toys, and so much more. Bruneau Antiques specializes in Chinese antiques, but their offerings span the spectrum from generations-old antiques to modern art. As Kevin says, "Our emphasis is always on high quality, across the board".
Kevin Bruneau is extraordinary not only because of the breadth and quality of his acquisitions, but because now, Kevin's remarkable years of travel, hunting and sought-after expertise have launched him into the world of television! Beginning July 16th, Kevin joins a group of four antiques professionals on a new show, "Market Warriors" which airs on PBS stations nationwide and locally on WGBH beginning Monday, July 16 at 9pm (check local listings) immediately following the popular show "Antiques Roadshow." "Market Warriors" features Kevin and his fellow antiques pickers - Bob, John and Miller - as they crisscross the country in search of all things rare, collectible, valuable and authentic.
