About

Une Belle Coincidence...

Direct from the French countryside to your home- I love creating, bargain hunting, and eye-catching, breathe-taking beauty. I love making something out of nothing, and taking something and making it into something even more.

I don't specialize in anything specific- I just grab up things that catch my eye. I hope that my items will be given a second life- either to be used or up-cycled. I'm the kind of girl that isn't looking for prince perfect- I want prince charming! Enjoy my French and European vintage finds here, and even some European supplies and handmade, up-cycled items!

My goal is to offer antiques at an affordable price. When I research pricing on any object, my aim is to price my items the lowest possible price available on Etsy.

-How it all started-
Word travels fast around a village with a population of 700 people- especially word about foreigners living here, so I found out rather quickly that there was another English speaker living right here under my nose. What was more- Anna was pregnant, and I'll be honest- I love pregnant ladies!

We finally met and hit it off- it was friendship at first sight. We've decorated cakes together, hodge-podged together, buttoned together, travelled together, shopped together, painted together, watched our kids together, and gabbed over more cups of tea than we care to count.

In trying to find some good out of the many obstacles and hardships of living so far away from home, we discovered 'brocantes,' which are village-wide Sunday carboot or garage sales, where you can get anything from roller blades to waffle makers. True treasures hide among the kilometers of unwanted items.

Since then Anna has moved, but I've continued on my Etsy journey solo...

And it all started with the 1930's lace parasol, in perfect condition.

Items can be reserved for up to 48 hours.
Shipping overages may be refunded directly if you pay through direct checkout, or in store credit if you payed through Paypal.
Shipping
Please contact me for combined shipping rates. Shipping costs in France depend on weight categories, so I weigh items and packaging to determine shipping costs.

Shipping by economic French post (no tracking number, please inquire about adding insurance), packaged with beauty and care. Shipping costs include careful packaging, because we want to ensure that fragile items arrive safely and in the same condition in which they left France. Items ship within 3 business days of payment, unless otherwise stated in the listing.

Shipping times are only estimates given by the post and depend greatly on many external factors such as the host country and customs.

In my years of experiences (hundreds are parcels sent) shipping to the USA takes a week to 10 days, but please allow at least 1 month for shipping to the North America, 2 months for shipping to Asia before opening a claim with your post office. I CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR LATE ITEMS.

To date, I have only had 3 parcels never arrive to their destination (out of 500+ and counting). That said, I've had numerous packages get lost and take ages, and some that have come back to me even. All this to say, I can't be held responsible for something that is litterally out of my hands.

I strive to make packages pretty- but eco-friendly. I re-use old boxes and try to wrap things in reused material-even vintage material!
Refunds and Exchanges
All items sold 'as is.' All sales are final. Please ask any questions before purchase, request additional photos. We would be happy to call you to discuss an item, or Skype to demonstrate any item live! I am not an antique expert and all date, brand, or material references are estimates based on information gathered and research.

Customer satisfaction is important to me. I take great care in packaging items. If any item arrives broken I will gladly refund the item and shipping, I simply ask for a photo of the damage.

Shipping overseas is a delicate matter. While the post gives us an arrival estimate, things can go quicker or slower depending on many factors. If your item does not arrive within 1 month of the sent date ( for the USA), we will ask that you open an inquiry/complaint through your local post about a missing parcel.

I cannot be held responsible for delays in shipping and no discounts or refunds will be given for this reason.
Additional policies and FAQs
I gently clean most objects with natural cleaners like vinegar, baking soda, and tea tree oil, but don't overclean to ensure your item will keep its authenticity and charm.

I am not responsible for any additional customs fees you may incur upon receiving your items.
