About

"HUNTER & GATHERER" Extrodinaire....

Welcome! I have gathered the collection of treasures you will find in my shop while traveling in Europe and time spent in France over the years.

Ever since I was a small child, I have always felt a gravitational pull toward antiques, museum quality to well loved and worn flea market treasures. Beginning at age 5 my grandfather and my mother would take me along on their “antiquing” adventures. My mother would tell me about the “life” of each piece, feeding my imagination and curiosity while creating a deep and abiding love of history, art and everything old.

My greatest treasures have been the life-long friendships formed with the people I've met along the way. The camaraderie and the stories shared with shop owners, flea market vendors and other collectors has added a lovely patina to my life...

I live in a small bucolic town in Central California where there are many beautiful vignettes to inspire. Although I am fortunate and appreciative of where I reside, I resonate with the very old oldness of Europe. The architecture, the old walls, worn stairways, the murals and so much more enriched my life to the point where I pursued an education in Environmental Design, Painting and Art History.

Enough about me! I hope you will discover something wonderful here a treasure to delight you. Perhaps, that one illusive piece that you’ve been seeking.

    Procure, Photograph & List Beautiful French Antiques For YOU!

    I am passionate about photography, gardening, cooking, good old-fashioned books and of course it goes without saying flea-markets and estate sales. One thing I love about antiques is their Green aspect, re-usability and quality of craftsmanship.

Welcome to For the Love of France Antiques and Vintage French Decor!
My 'love affair' with France began early on in my life thus specializing in French Antiques, Country French Decor and vintage French Linens is simply 'de rigueur' (essential). I have long been inspired by Country French decor as well as the opulence of Versailles! I found a kindred spirit in the French sensibilities and ways of living.
The treasures in my shop are gathered during my travels in Europe and time spent in France.
Enjoy,
Claudia Violette
