About

I love old things. My first appreciation for antiques and vintage was brought on by an aunt who lived for shopping antique boutiques. She took me with her sometimes and I would wander around aimlessly, picking up and examining items that caught my eye.

Vintage brings back history and is a part of who we are. It has character and is like an old friend. The imperfections make you love it more - spots, tears, wrinkles, snags, and dings speak to the story of a lifetime of love.

Bring vintage home and surround yourself with friends from the past - nothing says interesting like something with a story. You may know the story and you may not. Make it up in your head, but it is real and old and it definitely has had a past.

Visit LaBrocanterie for unique finds that have a story.

Favorite materials

anything the color fire engine red, chrome and glass together, felted wools, yellowed paper and the feel of quality like a heavy duty typewriter that weighs 40 pounds
