Welcome to My French Finds, born out of a love for beautiful old French brocante. I have been selling vintage treasures for the home since 2011, and before then, been collecting vintage for many years.
Everything in the My French Finds online shop has been chosen for its timeless appeal. Simple, rustic homewares are each hand-picked for their quality & to suit a wide range of interiors.
Frequently I travel to France, my home country, attend brocante fairs in Paris & ‘vide-greniers’ in Normandy and Britany which is always a wonderful experience, and many treasures are found!
Hope you enjoy browsing the online shop, and have a read about latest finds and French travels in the blog.
Best wishes, and thank you for visiting!

The condition is beautiful..most pitchers I was looking at had large areas of enamel worn away.

Thanks again! Best gift I could’ve given her!” – Kym
