Eclectic with a French Vintage Twist

If you need inspiration for an unusual touch in your home or a unique housewarming gift, our resident dealer Becky has a range of vintage fabrics and items, many brought over from France.  In fact to call her stock 'eclectic' is almost an understatement.

Becky is always taking trips across the channel and combing the English countryside to find the best in all things vintage.  

Here you may find an Old English Rose chintz up against a pile of French embroidered pillowcases.  Many of the textiles here are of great vintage quality, and range in size from a small square to a whole single bedspread  .Linens, lace and cottons that you can no longer find but will add that very desirable French country flavor to a sittingroom or bedroom.

Becky also has an eye for items to decorate with, once again from her visits to France, she stocks small painted pieces of furniture, and items for the kitchen, enamelware containers, wooden utensils and boxes.

For the fashonable in vintage clothes Becky always has a good selection from the 50's and 60's.  Also unusual toys for the collector, an Indian rag doll in a sari or a 1950's Chinese boy.

Eclectic has been elevated to an art form here, if you are looking for a pair of Turkish slippers or a set of Cornish glass fishing weights,  Becky's room of treasures is the place to look!
