If this is not possible we will ensure that the client is advised of when to expect dispatch of their item. We always expedite using the most efficient and effective service. Being able to share one’s passion is the dream! As a young boy Frank McKenzie would spend his time visiting local’Jumble Sales’ and foraging landfill on old railway lines for abandoned treasures. Since then and as an entrepreneur and accountant he has had a diverse and interesting career. With the emergence of the Internet this has since evolved into a thriving business. This has since expanded to incorporate branded handbags and jewellery. In 2021 the watch business was acquired by German online watch platform Chrono24 and Frank continued to run Xupes but with handbags and jewellery. He founded McKenzie Art & Design to handle the sale of his vast collection. Today the business is a LAPADA accredited member and Frank enjoys sharing his life-long passion with dealers and interior designers worldwide and has also developed relationships with private collectors across the globe.
