A Look into a Special Store and an Amazing Woman

French Wicker Market
Shopping Cart

Hi Everyone!

You are in for a real shopping treat! I would like to introduce you to Cheryl, an amazing woman and seasoned antique dealer who owns a fabulous store in California. She also has a beautiful online shop for your convenience. Both stores are filled with beautiful antiques and handmade items at really affordable prices.

French Alarm Clock

“I grew up around antiques in the home and appreciate the history and often wonder how and where items were used...what stories they could tell,” said Cheryl.

“My collection of antiques and collectibles contains a variety of items, many collected when I lived in France for 1 1/2 years and in England for 1 1/2 years in the late 1980s. There are English bread boards, English rolling pins, English barbola mirrors, English bakelite napkin rings & bracelets, lots of vintage French enamelware pieces and various small items from France.”

French Antique Madonna

“I am passionate about repurposing (especially old wood furniture pieces that have good "bones") and passionate about anything from France that is ‘old.’

“I started my web shop in 2005 and have been in an antique shop space at Serendipity Antiques in Old Town Temecula (CA) for almost 2 years now," Cheryl said. "I admire the creative talents of those who repurpose and embellish common items for a romantic home decor.”

English Watering Can
