About

Curious Curiosa is an eclectic vintage shop based in Burgundy, France, featuring items from all across France, Europe and beyond.

As a child, I used to help my artist mom look for rusty bottle caps on the sidewalk and other "eclectic" objects to make sculptures with. Thanks to that early artistic influence, I've always been around junk shops, flea markets and the like. This must have solidified my love for things of old and the people who refurbish them (or not) and give them new life as sculpture, jewelry, decorative items etc.

Here on Etsy, I'll be passing on some of the vintage/antique items from my surplus. I hope you'll find something that strikes your fancy and gives you the urge to start a new project.

My own interests include travel/nomadism, the visual and performing arts, languages,…

My own interests include travel/nomadism, the visual and performing arts, languages, literature, cultural studies, and much much more.

I currently live in France though I spend a lot of time visiting and being inspired by many places across the globe. Most of of my objects for sale here are French, but a few are from other European, African or Asian countries when noted.

I'm realy pleased to be a part of Etsy and feel grateful to be surrounded by so many wonderful artists here, though my bank card is a bit less happy than I am! :-)

*SHOP POLICIES*
------------------------------------------------------

*Paypal is the fastest and most reliable way to complete a transaction. I will only consider other methods of payment if you are located in France.

*I will ship worldwide, don't hesitate to e-mail me if you have any questions about shipping costs.

*Please note that I am currently located in France, the postal system here is excellent but occassionally larger packages may sit at customs for several days when entering the US. Please take that into consideration when watching for your item in the mail. Most items sold here shouldn't present a problem and will be recieved quickly. I ship items within 2 days of payment (outside weekends & holidays). I try to keep my shipping costs as low as possible by using recycled packaging etc. but again, please remember that I'm in France which means the dollar is low to the euro, and shipping can be higher than I'd like it to be.

*If there's anything else you'd like to know, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks so much for checking out Curious Curiosa!
