The Story

I bought a home in France years ago as I fell in love with the part of France called the Dordogne.  I did not know, when I bought it, that every Sunday there was a flea market somewhere close by.

As I learned my way around them I started purchasing things and came up with the idea of a web site.  Everything I buy is in France and after cleaning, washing and fixing it up, it is packed and sent to Dallas.  From there I ship it to my customers and they get what they buy in a few days instead of a few weeks.

I love the Japanese expression. Wabi Sabi. It’s flea markets, not shopping malls, aged wood, one single morning glory not a dozen roses.  Wabi Sabi understands the raw beauty of a December landscape and the elegance of an abandoned building.  It celebrates time worn items such as the things I buy at the flea markets.  I must say it took me awhile to understand this. 

That having been said, I buy the best I can find, specializing in items you will use such as linens, silver, crystal, dishes and sconces to name a few.

I hope you like what you see.
