Tasked with the challenge of finding these gems for people I trawl, in all weather (it’s a good job I am English!) the golden paved streets of London's markets, urban European junk shops and Parisian Sky's, finding trésor cache (hidden treasure).
It could be for the perfect wedding gift (antique French Champagne Glasses?), to a special birthday (Vintage Chanel Bag anyone?) or even a Belle Époque mirror for your Notting Hill crash pad.
|Luxury Travel - Red Leather Suitcase and Matching Vintage Vanity Case|
Most of the successes I post will come with a story, from Vintage YSL earrings for a black-tie event, to a 1950's red leather vanity case to match a designer suitcase. I will show you the items, impart the history, and take you on the journey I undertook to find it!
If it inspires you to board the train to London, Paris or beyond and visit the bon Marche's for yourself all the better! Please do share your fantastic buys and it only serves to further inspire me and others, in this world where everything is throw away, it’s amazing to give an item a new lease of life and to have a story to tell your friends and family when they admire (read: envy!) it! Happy Searching!
