A crazy collector of french antiques from the age of forteen looking for a cure in an etsy shop.

An italian friend living on a little island,who has an etsy shop showed me Etsy thinking it would be a good cure for me.

I live with a handicaping disease and it seemed there was no cure: I am a collector without a castle and my home is full over.I must do tragical choices and sell.This shop is a rebirth and a new cure,perhaps without a psy.I must talk you about that stuff.

Till now there is just one painting in the store but in my house the walls disappear behind the paintings,they don"t take room they bring magic,each one is a window for vanishing.Then they will be listed in another life.Sorry for talking about something you are not going to see soon.

That was my first obsession vanishing in a painting,the second is the antique lamps.Some are listed here,they are taking room.I need a lot of lamps for illumating the paintings and light is symbol of knewledge.I pass a great time reading,always the night and I find that light is not enough strong when reading,specially with the new bulbs,impossible to find now 100w in France.But lamps are too numerous and any hidden in cupboard,you will see them little by little.

After there is a lot of little things accumulated in wardrobe cupboards and drawers.I cannot describe the quantity.but all full over,kitchen utensils,table services,carafes...

Perhaps at the end I should open you all the doors and drawers. I see I am just talking like about a strip tease,but it looks like,you cannot immagine how difficult is selling all these treasuries accumulated during a life and you are going to wait a moment,it takes time to list all that stuff!!!

And because its 'not enough you can visit my other shop:


You will see other obsessions,I love working with yarn,looking for recreating my norman garden,another obsession.

I must explain the french word "matou",it means tom cat.

All the shippings are registered with an insurance.I use two french postal services,with each one I can track the pack.Till to 2kg,it is an "international registered little pack" ,for more than 2kg I use "colissimo".It's just a bit more expansive but more secure for you and me and till now with my 2 shops I have no lost pack.But in case of a lost pack I refund the purchase.For more than one item ask me.
