A plan was hatched, and a dream realised….
Hi, I’m Lesley, NZ is home and a great place to live. For 15 years my partner and I were spoilt having the opportunity to travel and work our way around Europe satisfying my passion for all things vintage on the way.
I have collected a wonderful array of vintage treasures, often to my long-suffering partner Marcos’ sighs and smiles of acceptance.
More recently I have teamed up with a dear friend Catherine who shares my passion for French Vintage and between us we are always on the hunt for treasures.
My house and Viewing Room are overflowing with finds which I want to share with you.
I have always believed whether you have an ultra-modern home in the city, a Bach by the beach or a cosy villa in the country a wonderful piece of vintage can add depth and fun to your home.
So, while sitting in a French café, no not in France but in Russell in the Bay of islands NZ a plan was hatched, and a dream realised.
I invite you to take a look at our finds: – discover something to inspire and delight, call it your own. no not in France but in Russell in the Bay of islands NZ a plan was hatched, and a dream realised.
Oh, the shop name- Canard? (French for Duck). Well ducks remind me of my dad, and I just love all things French.
Dads gone now but he loved ducks and whenever I need inspiration or the courage to jump into something new a duck will cross my path reminding me dad is beside me, egging me on.
A bit mushy I know but it gives me the warm fuzzies.
