Collecting history, one secret at a time
I love vintage stuff, the beautiful patina on cherished objects passed from a generation to another. Love the way people used to make things, with rudimentary tools yet so stylish and ornamented. That drove me to collect beautiful pieces that have a history behind them, with marks and dents of time. Underneath the dust, you often find such an exquisite beauty, little details shimmering in the fresh light.
I love fairs, I enjoy waking up early in the morning to be the first one harvesting the precious gems from piles of rusty memories, with my eagle trained eye, bringing home the pray. The rush is over. Now a meticulous process begins, of bringing the objects to light, restoring their former glory, discovering their secrets.
I use different restoration processes, from electrolysis to plain hands-on rubbing and brushing, wiping and polishing.
At times, I find unusual objects that spike my interest, and I conduct a thorough research to find more about them. I keep in close contact with antique shops owners and collectors fellows and exchange expertise and advices about collectibles.
My main interest are keys, vintage beautiful keys, I love everything about them, their shape, so recognizable yet different from one region to another, from one century to another, telling the story of the hut or castle they once opened. Bearers of secrets, little cabinet keys and large iron padlocks, keyholes and escutcheons, with delicate ornaments or a heavy rustic look, forged in fire and handled by fine hands in fancy lace gloves... I collect them and share them with other collectors, like minded people with a tooth for vintage finds.
Collector of oddities, keys and other secrets, hunter of the fairs, historian and conservator of antique craftsmanship.

Shipping within Europe usually takes one-two weeks, about two-three weeks to US and two-four weeks everywhere else. The covid pandemic might increase shipping times.
Depending on the size of your package and your country, worldwide shipping can take as little as two to three weeks, up to five weeks. We cannot predict the unexpected postal delays or custom taxes, that depends on your country rules so please be aware of that at the time of your purchase.
In case you buy more than one item we will combine shipping for you to pay as few as possible and refund you the overcharged shipping, if any. Your order will be shipped using the most economical, but safest method possible.
Please contact us if an item hasn't reached you in 3 to 4 weeks from the date of postage, and we'll guide you forward so that the package would not risk being returned to me as unclaimed due to missed delivery.
I send all orders with registered mail which is a safe service and requires signature on delivery. Tracking is available for most European countries and a few others, but some countries like US, Canada and Australia do not offer tracking anymore.
If you require a tracking number to one of the countries that does not track registered mail, let us know BEFORE making a purchase, so we can update the shipping costs to reflect fast courier shipping which is pricey but includes reliable worldwide tracking.
[Address] Please make sure that the address you select for delivery is the one you expect the item to be shipped to.
Once an order is marked "in progress" you cannot cancel it anymore. Thank you for understanding.
