Bringing you a wonder-shop of French vintage treasures

We are a Franco-Canadian couple (she is from Western Canada, he is from Eastern France), we live in a village in the Eastern France region of Franche Comté.
We enjoy living in the French countryside, surrounded by history and tradition...At every corner, an old church, a typical farm, a chateau,... and a flea-market!
Touring around in our vintage Citroën (a 1982 CX sedan), we never fail to stop at flea-markets, brocantes and garage sales (they are called vide-greniers here= attic sales, and they do take place in the village plaza, not in the attic!), where we see a lot of cool vintage pieces, from kitchen accessories to old linen sheets, tools to china, religious items to pop culture creations, and everything in between (did I mention ashtrays and maps?). Some of these treasures we get for ourselves, but we cannot keep them all... We figure we are not the only ones (from North America or elsewhere) who would enjoy these little pieces of French history, tradition and daily life of yesteryear, so we have decided to help you bring, through Etsy, some of the flavours and colours of old France into your own home, either to use everyday (we do sleep in vintage linen sheets, and it is wondeful!), to decorate or to repurpose.
Come visit A French Vintage Market often, as we keep finding interesting pieces on our travels. We have a simple philosophy to select the treasures that we offer in our Etsy store: if it has character, if we would like to have it in our home, if it is in good vintage condition and of course, if it is French, then it is good for our friends on Etsy!
A nice patina is always a bonus...
Happy exploring!

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Due to the nature of vintage items, all sales are final, there will be no refund, credit or exchange: we make all efforts to describe the items accurately, make sure you read the description and look at the pictures carefully, and ask any question you may have before ordering.
Refund will only happen if the product was damaged in shipping: see details in the Shipping Policy section.
Payment
We accept payment via Paypal, by Etsy Direct Payment and Etsy Gift Certificates.
You can also pay with a credit card through Paypal, even if you do not have a Paypal account.
Shipping
All our products are shipped from France, using the French Postal Services priority mail (called Colissimo), a fast and reliable service. You should receive your parcel in 3 to 10 days (not a guaranteed time, but very reliable), depending on your country and how far you are from a major centre. Remember also that your parcel may be held by the Customs Services of your country, and that no one has any control over this; you the buyer are fully and solely responsible for any Customs taxes and duties.
Priority mail (Colissimo) includes a tracking number to follow your parcel (this service may or may not work once the parcel has left France, depending on your country), and your signature will be required to get your parcel. Insurance coverage is included (23 euros per kg), which should cover many of our products; if you wish to get insurance for a higher value, it will be at extra cost (get in touch with us for that).
Shipping costs also include packing and handling.
If possible, we will combine shipping: sometimes, it is advantageous to combine shipping, sometimes it is not possible or not cheaper... We will do our best to get you the best shipping rate!
We do our very best to pakage each item with great care but, should the product arrive damaged, you the buyer need to file a complaint with the Postal Service locally; you then email us a copy of your complaint receipt, and we can issue a refund; insurance never covers shipping cost, so this is not refundable.
Please make sure that the correct shipping address appears on your Etsy or Paypal account! We cannot be held responsible for packages which are undeliverable or not collected by the buyer from their Post Office for any reason. No refund will be issued for items returned to us as undeliverable
Additional policies and FAQs
Please keep in mind that all of our items are vintage or antiques (not repros), they are not new (with a few rare exceptions). These items have had previous lives of their own and some of them have reached us in less than mint condition! Our items may show wear or patina and we believe this is part of the experience and charm of vintage. All our items are clean but we do not restore or refurbish them. Real patina happens only once and we choose not to remove it. We do our best to describe our items honestly and accurately, through both text and pictures, we will note any known imperfections. Please pay attention to the pictures!
Due to the nature of vintage items, all items are sold as-is and all sales are final (no credit, refund or exchange). As a result, as we want you to be happy, please make sure you ask any question before making your purchase.
