About

Sharing my passion with you.

Bonjour and welcome to Auberge de Seattle Boutique! My name is Nancy and I live in the Seattle area...I am an American, but in many ways I am French. I lived growing up in French Morocco for 8 years and in the Loire Valley of France for six years as a teenager. I also lived in Canada for 11 years.

I have always been fascinated with Antique Shops...no matter where I go I always seem end up in an Antique Shop or outside market of some sort...I've had this passion since I was a teenage. I used to laugh when I was a flight attendant and tell people I flew for the shopping, as that seemed to be what we did on our lay-overs.

I started posting items from France on our cooking website, (we have a French Specialty Cooking School in the suburbs of Seattle) and then when I found out how great Etsy is to work with and how easy it is to set up shop, it was a no brain-er for me to put some effort into selling items that I've acquired along my travels. Being a buyer has always had an appeal to me, as I've always thought that buying things and selling them would be great fun...and here I am doing that now.

These days it's mainly to France that I do my buying. My daughter lives in the suburbs of Paris and when we're together we spend our Saturdays and Sundays traveling to the towns around where she lives and walk the flea markets and broccants. It's our Mother and Daughter time. She also has a shop on Etsy.

I go to France two or three times a year to spend time with her and her little family and I also travel to other provinces to visit with friends and family. My Mother was French...I lived in the Loire Valley of France and also French Morocco when I was little. I really only settled in USA in 1981.

As I get older I think about retiring and wonder what I would do with myself with so much time on my hands...this venture may just be the segue into re-inventing myself.

    French heritage is the beginning. My Mother was French & my Father was an American who lived with the French in French Morocco & in France for 17 years. As a third cutural child, (having lived in Morocco & France) I feel more French than Ameircan.

Production partners

    The company I used is an online service available to authors who want to self publish, which is what I did. You supply the files to them, they send you proofs, once you approve the proof they publish and print the hard cover book for you to sell.
