Welcome to my shop ! I live in France and most of the things I have in the shop were discovered - rediscovered really - while searching around local brocantes, vide-greniers and flea markets . In the summertime, every village and town has their own version - they've all got their own character and atmosphere, and there are no two alike. So I just have to go to them all !
France is full of wonderful vintage items, some well-used and loved , and some hardly touched, put away in cupboards (armoires) and drawers (tiroirs), kept for only very special occasions. I love them all ! Maybe you're looking for accessories for your French-style kitchen or bedroom, vintage clothes, books or photographs, or maybe you'll just know it when you see it. The French have the verb `fouiller' which means to rummage around. Sounds much better in French, don't you think ?
I also have many items which are British in origin, or acquired there.
I'm adding new items all the time, so check back frequently for more French and British finds.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Check
  • Other Method
Payment
I accept payment by Paypal , cheques in sterling ie British pounds and in French Euros. I will also accept a bank transfer on condition that the correct money is transferred to my French bank account in Euros. A transfer in any other currency will incur substantial bank charges to me. In the event of this occurring I would require those charges to be paid by the buyer before any purchases can be shipped.
A non-payment will result in a cancellation of a transaction and a relisting of the item. A partial payment or a non reimbursement of any bank charges to me will also be considered as a non-payment. Depending on the exact circumstances I also reserve the right to refuse a full refund, based on whatever those bank charges have been.
Please pay or contact me within 3 days of purchase.
Shipping
I ship 3 times a week from France. Please let me know if you require expedited shipping, insurance or any other different method of delivery. As I happily ship internationally, please be aware that the buyer is responsible for any or all duties and customs payable.
I use recycled packaging where possible.
Please let me know if you'd like an item to be gift-wrapped.
Refunds and Exchanges
In general I try to describe fully each item including any areas of damage, repair or requiring repair. Most of my items have been previously owned and used and their appearance and condition reflect that. If you feel the item is not as described then of course a return is possible. But if you are unhappy about any aspect of the purchase at all I would rather you contacted me immediately so we can sort it out.
Additional policies and FAQs
I spend quite a bit of time looking around fleamarkets attic sales etc. If there is a particular item you'd like me to seek out, please don't hesitate to get in touch and ask!
