Welcome to our new website and our new blog! Carole is the antiques expert and she spends her time buying and photographing stock. I'm Carole's other half and I'll use this space to write about what I'm learning about the trade as well as our journeys around France.
I met Carole in London - We’ve left behind The Big Smoke and such bourgeois urban concerns as regular income and the price of a soya flat white. Now we have a different type of existence in France, a world of shrugging shoulders, stinky cheese, bad cars and exquisite patisserie. Our lives were also somewhat complicated by the birth of our loud but lovely daughter Léa in early 2017. So, I’ll be mainly writing about an old country, a new one, the change in pace of living and the small things in life.
