Discover the World of French Antiques by joining an Upcoming Antique Buying Tour in 2024 or 2025

The journey of discovering antique paintings has been the seed from which so much has grown. After spending 10 years in France and nearly as long in the antiques industry, I began offering private antique buying tours last year. It all started when some industry-leading antique shop owners from the US reached out to me, seeking curated professional buying tours in France.

Why These Tours Are Special

What excites me most about these tours is the opportunity to connect with like-minded people who share my passion for antiques, art, and the beautiful country I now call home. We're all treasure hunters, beauty seekers, and curators, but there's something deeper that unites us. If you're following along, I think we share this: We're in search of inspiration, new perspectives, a connection to history, and living enriched lives.

Meeting people from all over the world, running intimate antique buying tours, "unlocking" authentic French experiences, and collaborating with clients to explore the world of antiques brings me immense joy. Antiques spark joy, and I live by that.

A Unique Experience

Clients often tell me that these tours are a highlight of their time in France, offering far more than a typical guiding experience. We engage in wandering conversations, build dreams and decor, explore the history of objects, share delicious meals, and dive into artful French living in a way that is both restorative and fun. We also meet French dealers and get a behind-the-scenes look at the secret world of French antiques and the fascinating people who source and restore these objects.

Upcoming Tours and Availability
