About

Vintage finds and recycled treasures

ChiqenAude Cherished Vintage- La Nostalgie de la Vie à la Campagne.

Bienvenue and welcome to each and everyone of you who, like me, just LOVE old stuff!

I am Gill, an artist and a passionate lifelong collector of beautiful old things.

My wish was always to live a simple French country village life. Now that I can finally do that, I want to share my passion for all these wonderful old finds that evoke true nostalgia for a quieter place and a simpler time.
For me, these old treasures inspire an affection for the hand crafted, the unique, the gently worn, the precious and the pre-loved.

ChiqenAude Vintage started this journey in May 2016, based then at our UK cottage.
Thank you to all those amazing buyers who supported us and "rehomed" our pre-loved and restyled treasures in our first 12 months of business!

After many years of plotting and planning, we finally moved to our old French home in 2017.
So, here I am, finally creating my cherished dream of dedicating my time to doing what I love best-breathing new life into old stuff!

ChiqenAude has now relaunched here in the lovely Languedoc as "La Nostalgie"
Every piece we sell evokes that nostalgia and affection for a simple French country life.

I carefully clean and repair my finds; sometimes I refinish, restyle or recycle them. All are unique and evocative of times past and reflect my passions and my ethics in saving these old pieces to be appreciated and enjoyed by new owners.

Please check our photos ; and you are always welcome to visit us to view items before buying/collecting.
Some of my pieces can be sent out by regular post, but I prefer to deliver or arrange collection on our larger pieces as vintage items cannot be replaced like for like.

Please note* my items are all old so wear and tear, associated age marks and imperfections are inevitable. This is all part of their inherent charm and character.

But don't just take my word for it; here's a recent comment from a fan of La Nostalgie:-

"It’s a triumph … The difference in the contrast of relaxed neutral paint and the weathered, aged leather is fabulous. Very elegant and absolutely hitting the mark between contemporary-vintage and preserved-antique. RESCUE-CHIC at its best"

Vive La Nostalgie!
