we're based in the beautiful cornish town of lostwithiel, which used to be the ancient capital of cornwall but is now better known as the antiques capital of cornwall. we moved here in 2001 after spending many years working abroad, and this is where we picked up our love of foreign antiques, and brocante. we only stock items that we would be happy with in our house and are always on the lookout be it at home or abroad for quirky, unusual and one off pieces.
