April: The start of brocante season
Welcome to Le Shop. Each month, I create a curated collection of vintage European finds. I personally select each treasure and prepare them to be used & enjoyed in your home. I adore everything I sell. If it doesn’t speak to me as beautiful and functional, it doesn’t find its way into my market basket. It is a pleasure to be your connection to French style and design.
This month, I will be adding French vintage kitchen items. I head to Amiens, France for the big brocante or flea market north of Paris. There will be hundreds and hundreds of vendors. I keep beauty and utility in mind as I hunt for vintage fabric, copper ware, pottery pieces, and just the right things to bring lasting joy to your home. I can’t wait to show you what I discover. Keep stopping back to Le Shop as objects will be added throughout the month.
I’ll also add more handcrafted items that I have created myself from vintage castaways, fabrics, and notions. I find that my life is fuller when I make things. I love to rework old pieces to give them a new purpose in life and create heirlooms for the future. Specifically, I will be making sets of bowl covers out of French vintage linen fabric. I love that they are pretty, practical, and reusable.
As always, please ask questions about size, condition, or origin on anything in Le Shop before you purchase. Vintage and antique items have a wonderful worn, patina look and feel that make them special. I do not sell items that are clearly damaged and I note if there are imperfections or repairs. Items are sold "As Is" meaning as described and photographed. No matter the treasure, rest assured each item is packed and shipped with extreme care. Unless otherwise noted, products are shipped from Berlin, Germany within 5 days of payment via DHL. It usually takes 2-3 weeks to arrive.
We accept major credit cards and Paypal. Packages are carefully wrapped and shipped within 3 days of payment being cleared.
