Site facilities and services

Our shop is open on by appointment through the Winter of 2023/2024. We will have some regular hours in the Summer months and we will be open for advertised events at other times. We are located just around the corner from our buying office in the centre of Cherence le Roussel, in Normandy, in France.

In our shop you will find a sample of items from our online inventory and a selection of larger pieces that are too big for us to ship internationally. Bear in mind though that our full inventory of 10,000+ items is only available to view online.

Our buying office is also open by appointment for customers. This office is for us to value and purchase items only. Customers can also collect items they have purchased from us online. We can also give you a free valuation and purchase from you at our gallerie during opening hours by arrangement.

Contact us to pay for or reserve items and make an appointment to collect your purchases from our office or gallerie.

Customers visiting on a Saturday can also visit our colleague just down the road; Troc Mamie. Selling an ever evolving inventory of vintage and antique collectables directly in store you are sure to receive a warm welcome from Mamie Tracy! Link to Troc Mamie Facebook Page.

Estate clearance services

We don’t personally carry out house clearances but we are keen to see your items before you get the clearance guys in! We are happy to come to your local premises and give you prices for individual pieces we are interested in purchasing. We can also offer advice on moving on those pieces we are not interested in buying!

As we sell to a worldwide market we are confident we can offer you higher prices than other local dealers who rely on the local market to sell on merchandise. There is no rush, obligation or pressure to sell to us and we are happy to give clients thinking time. Male and/or female callers can visit. English, French or German speaking.

We do have colleagues who will be happy to come in and clear properties for you. Depending on house contents these services can often be free. A ‘clearance’ service will see your premises cleared from top to bottom but of course we would suggest you call us in first!

We don’t tend to buy larger items as the majority of our business takes place online with international clients and shipping large items is very expensive. We can make some recommendations though if you need a hand with moving on larger items.
