$$$ Price guide: getting pricey
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.
The name, La Brocante (pronounced ‘bro-cont’) is a French term used to describe an antique or flea market, and while the styling and pricing at La Brocante might be a far cry from that of a flea market there is a distinctly French air about this vintage store. The collection here is small but there are some really lovely pieces. Penny also mentioned that we can expect more reproduction prints similar to the L’Assiette au Beurre featured below which I’m very excited about!
