About AtelierNostalgi

Sales 454
On Etsy since 2009

Atelliernostalgi - Antique, Vintage, Original Handmade.

“Ateliernostalgi”, born out of a love for history and all things antique, vintage, old, torn, worn & rusted, with a touch of patina. Each piece is hand picked by me, from broncante's, markets & garage sales in France, England and Australia.

I grew up in a "make do and mend" family, where nothing much was thrown away and would be mended or, repurposed into something else, therefore, many of my handmade items are created from vintage sourced materials, discarded, abandoned, objects and materials.
Enjoy your browse!

Welcome to Nostalgi,
I will always do my best to be fair and helpful and give you a quality item.

If you have a problem with an item or transaction, please convo me and together we can work it out.

If you would like insurance cover or, registered mail, please contact me before you purchase and I will let you know how much extra this will cost you.

All my items are vintage and show the signs of use, worn & weathered, which adds to their vintage character. Each piece is original and offered as found.

Postage & Shipping:

To make sure my parcels are as minimally wasteful as possible. I aim to use all, or as much, recycled packing materials as possible. I may re-use tissue paper from something else, or brown paper, used gift wrapping etc. I use fabric, ribbons, handmade cards - what I have available without purchasing new packaging supplies.

My handmade items are usually one- of- a- kind but, sometimes I can make something similar, if I have the materials. I require 100% payment upfront before I start production. I do not refund after payment received on custom orders, once the project is started.

If you have any questions or concerns, or, would like to see additional photos, please contact me before purchasing
