Searching for the stories behind forgotten treasures.
I grew up in a small town in Connecticut that happened to be host to the largest flea market in New England. Wandering that huge field of everything under the sun, I developed a deep love and appreciation for antiques and vintage goods. My taste has been constantly changing over the years, but when finding treasures I look for quality of craftsmanship, condition, how rare or sought after an object is, its usefulness (or potential usefulness if it can be repurposed!) and a timeless sense of style. I hope there are others like me; those with a shoestring budget but a passion for all things old, who can find something they really love *and* afford in my shop. I love making people happy - it's what I strive to do in my daily life and with my etsy shop.
At La Roux Vintage, I offer antique and vintage books, home decor, glass and serving ware, jewelry and old photographs. If you're looking for something special, I absolutely love requests and do my best to find exactly what you need - if I can't find it, I'll help you reach someone who can!
My personal collections include 'rainbow glass' drinking glassware, mid-century illustrated children's books, and adding to my album of discarded black and white candid photos. I live in Somerville, MA (just outside of Boston) with my longhaired cat Lila and my fellow-artist boyfriend Allan, my biggest supporters and causers of spontaneous cuddle puddles. When not hunting for new vintage goods, I'm often found cold-brewing coffee at home, animating, crafting or painting, and running.
