Hello, Welcome, Bienvenue!
One evening after a chilled bottle of wine and moules at the Grande Braderie Lille, my husband asked “if you could do anything you wanted, what would it be?” My answer was to spend our time doing what we love, why wouldn’t you? Hunting out vintage pieces and antiques in France, we had already developed a passion for La Brocante so why couldn’t we make this our work? …. sometimes you get what you wish for!.
So now (in addition to our regular trips to the brocante markets) we have a range of lovely contacts throughout France and Belgium (and a Welsh farmer) who find pieces for us. To be honest, they can’t quite believe some of the things we love – from a decorated submarine door to chains from a chateau gate – you never know what you are going to find.
We are always looking for the decorative, quirky and useful, buying at good prices to sell at reasonable ones, items range from decorative kitchenalia, through mid-century furniture to country classics and always fun “conversation/statement” pieces.
We have a shop in the lovely Cambrian House Emporium in Oswestry and trade on-line here and on Facebook: www.facebook.com/Clares-Vintage-1499540473625354/
We hope you like our collection and if there’s anything in particular you’d like us to source just send us a message.
