I have been sourcing antiques and vintage decorative items for 20 years. I primarily started in France. Always looking for new and exciting vintage pieces has taken me through Europe and most recently Eastern Europe. 

Based in Surrey, UK, you can find me regularly exhibiting my collections of antique and vintage finds at London antiques markets, primarily Kempton Antiques market and International Fairs such as Ardingly and Newark.
