Shopping Tours

2024 Tour Schedule to be Announced this October

Antiquing in France is practically an institution, with dozens of Brocantes, Déballages, and Vide Greniers occurring throughout the country on any given day...but how to find them, how to get there, where to stay?   And more importantly, how to get all those treasures back home?  After almost twenty years’ experience in the field, we’ve learned the where, the when, and the how…and we’re ready to show you.   

On whichever tour you choose, you'll become a confident Chineuse or Chineur (bargain hunter) after gaining practical “boots on the ground” experience in:

  • Antiquing terminologies and procedures
  • Shopping strategies
  • What to look for when shopping for specific pieces
  • Negotiating tips

Whether you’re looking for smalls, furniture, lighting, architectural pieces or garden, you’re sure to find it…and when you do just point, pay, and keep shopping!  We handle the coordination of shipping all your newly-found treasures back to the States.

And what trip would be complete without experiencing the history, the food, and the regional wines France is known for?  We’ve taken care of that as well:  our trips include meals, historical tours, and and side trips.

Our tours are intensive, so bring comfortable shoes and practical clothing!



Hotels, transportation (excluding airfare), Übers, event fees, meals, tips, and of!


Airfare, travel insurance and incidentals, shipment of purchases to the US and your home.
