Vintage Treasures from France to Your Home

I love nothing better than to head out on Sunday mornings to search for treasures. I started out collecting trims and buttons for my paper crafts, many of which you'll find in my shop. I love it when I come upon a stash of buttons or trims that obviously came from a crafty woman's home. Much of the time they come wound onto, or stitched to pieces of cardboard, and in my mind, I am taken instantly to their sewing nook

We dream of owning a stone farmhouse one day, and so I am always looking for furniture, decor and kitchen items with which to one day furnish it. In the meantime you'll find a good selection of those in my shop for your own home.

Curating the items in my shop is truly a pleasure for me. I don't purchase anything that I don't love myself, and everything I bring home is something that I felt some kind of connection to.

I marvel at the history behind these seemingly forgotten objects. I meticulously research each item before I list it, and I have learnt a lot about French history and culture in doing so.

It's my pleasure to share this with you, and to rescue these treasures and send them off to new homes so they can tell new stories.

    I've been living in France for just over eleven years & I fell in love with the flea markets. Known as Vide Greniers, Brocantes or Marche aux Puces, thrifting is a way of life for my family, & how we primarily furnish and decorate our home.
