He worked with jewelry and precious stones for several years before moving to the antiques trade. He was innovative in crafting jewelry and working with his own designs. He loved handicrafts and had a passion for antiques. He used to collect antiques from Old palaces and auctions and he became a lover of them. He entered the field of antiques trade and became one of the leading antiques dealers in Egypt and all countries of the world. Then this trade was passed down to his son Mr Waleed Mostafa Nono, where he expanded into the field of antiques acquisition and became a large collection of unique antiques from all over the world and participated in several Exhibitions in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the Emirates, and Old Shop has become a brand for all lovers of collecting antiques in the world.
