Hello to all French Antique lovers out there.

If you are reading my story, then you, like me are interested in using only the finest Antique French items that I can source.

My wife and I arrived in France on the first June 2012 after selling our home of 25 years in the UK. We had sold up all of our furniture and possessions in the UK to move into a rented house for 6 months in the Hautes_Pyrenees, South West France and only 1 hour from the Spanish border. After extending our rental into a year, we eventually found our dream home, an old farmhouse with lots of outbuildings and 7 acres of land and best of all, a view of the Pic du Midi, a mountain range in the Pyrenees Mountains. The picture on my shop of my Wife and I was taken at the summit of the Pic du Midi reached by cable car.

After buying our new home here in France, we wanted to furnish our home in traditional French furniture and started visiting Trocs, Brocantes, and Vide Greniers (pre loved furniture and kitchenware sources).

Our passion for mostly copper items soon blossomed from there.

I love collecting all kinds of Ancient French items but mostly copper, and spend a great deal of my time at vide greniers, antique fairs and brocantes searching for items of interest.

I try hard to source Ancient items that have been stored and have never been used or those that have had very little use.

All the items I sell, are things that I would personally like to own. but it would be too impracticable to keep everything that I purchase!

I love the idea that all of these items have a story to tell and not all are pristine, showing the odd minute knock or two but this only enhances the appeal for me.

Most of my items are antique but I choose those that have had an easy life either from non use or very light use. and it's so good to be a part of the items history by giving them a purpose again by using them and enjoying them. I hope you feel the same.
