About

Using the past to bring warmth to your home

I learned from my grandmother how to scour a thrift store to claim objects that might be crusty with filth and overlooked by most, bring them home, clean them, restore them if necessary, and layer them to create a home that has just the right amount of worn warmth.

The name Place Michel comes from our home address while living in central France in the mid 2000's.

    I live in southeastern US where I grew up, but because of my love of cold weather and Europe, particularly France, I must have lived elsewhere in another life. My life is filled with caring for my family, decorating, gardening, sewing, and yoga.

I have spent years hunting treasures for my home. My home is now full, but I still like to hunt. Let me hunt for you. In my shop I will bring to you the many treasures found near and far to make your home, space, life all that you want it to be.

Returns and exchanges
Shipping for breakable or fragile items will be slightly higher because of the increased amount of packing material needed to protect the item. If anything is lossed or damaged during shipment, I will work with you to rectify the problem.
Under certain circumstances I will refund your purchase or make an exchange. These circumstances will be decided on a case by case basis. I want you to be happy and shop with confidence.

Shipping
I try to keep shipping costs as low as possible by reusing boxes and shipping materials and by using a variety of shipping methods. I ship using United States Parcel Service, FedEx Home Delivery, and UPS depending on which carrier is most economical for the item being shipped.
USA shipping fees do not include shipping to Hawaii and Alaska. Please contact me for adjusted shipping prices to these states.
