Endearing, curious objects with a past.

Ever since she was small, Aurelia has been poking about in dark corners looking for treasure. Sometimes she finds some, sometimes she has a misadventure, but she's always keen to go treasure hunting again.

This has lead to a surplus of treasure! There are few things sadder than a pretty thing looking for love - so this is a matchmaking service - connecting tiny treasures with new owners to love and adore them. Each item has been carefully curated, hand picked for it's special qualities. Old objects with a story, pretty things that resonate with past adventures are particular favourites.

Aurelia has a postgraduate degree in the Visual Arts and was taught how to evaluate the quality of objects from a very young age . She has a keen eye for detail and an intuitive ability to find the best treasures in the dankest of junkyards.

The first time Aurelia tried to buy (rather than unearth) a juicy piece of treasure she got duped. When she figured out her mistake she felt terrible. She then went about learning everything she could regarding the history of shiny things to make sure it couldn't happen again. She vows to always be honest and forthright in her trades. Honesty and Integrity Always.

Frequently asked questions
Can I organise a lay-by or payment plan with your shop?

Yes! If it wasn't for lay-by I wouldn't have most of my favourite things, so it's only fitting that I offer it to you, too. Generally I take a non-refundable deposit of 20% up front, followed by monthly payments over three months.

I do not offer returns on layby items.

Please send me a message about the item you are interested in and let's work it out ^_^
