Vide Maison

What started out as an interest and a fun way to spend Sunday mornings at the flea markets of France soon threatened to overtake our home and, once the house started looking as much like a brocante as the ones we visited, I had to start 'sharing'.

Now that we've moved back to England, we are in a much smaller house so the sharing has to be stepped up a bit.

I do find it very hard to part with some of the items but it has to be done although I will never have a 'minimalist' home. Of course, the occasional treasure still finds a permanent home with us but we just cannot hold on to everything

I hope you enjoy a 'virtual' visit to a French flea market as you look through my items and thank you for taking the time to read about me and my shop.

Last updated on August 5, 2022
All the items in this shop have been acquired by me because I felt they needed rescuing from their sad and lonely lives in flea markets or brocantes. I cannot always be sure of the age of each item but I only offer them for sale if I believe them to be at least 20 years old and. in the absence of any tangible proof, I decide this to the best of my ability.

Shipping
Most items will be sent by Royal Mail. I will always combine shipping costs where possible so if you are interested in any of the other items in my shop here https://www.lamanche.etsy.com please contact me for a shipping quote as it may be I can get them both in the same package.
