Description

This beautifully presented vintage store on High Street Northcote stocks a range of homewares and collectables from all over the globe, with French and Belgian pieces featuring prominently.  The owner, Penny Attwill, spent a number of years studying in France. During this time she developed a love of all things French and has since travelled back many times in search of items for her Melbourne store.  La Brocante also stocks a range of new giftware, cards, books and decorative bird houses which dominate the front of the store; most of the vintage wares are located at the rear.  Vintage highlights include number stamps, scales and European maps.
