About

It all began in Florence

Frankly speaking I could never imagine myself being engaged in antiques. I saw it as something very complicated, unobtainable. And when I first attended an antique market (it was my absolute first time, I haven't even been to a flea market before), well, it got even worse, an embarrassment of riches. So how did I get to this point?

In 2014 I moved to Florence, Italy to study painting and restoration. It must have been fateful that I rented an apartment in Oltrarno, which as I later discovered is called a "neighbourhood of antique shops". I think I'm not the person who takes things for granted or gets used, every day walking those streets, going to museums and looking at the antique shop windows I felt delighted. It felt like a dream but... Florence is an extremely expensive place to live, so I struggled to make ends meet.

In the beginning of 2015 I went a local antique market, where I got completely confused by the variety and prices, although I just picked several random items, set up this shop and listed them for sale. At that time I just did everything blindfolded, I realise it now. Step by step I started to feel my way through the process.

With time I gained a better understanding, I get more professional every day, with every new item I find and every sale I make. Now I constantly travel all around Europe "hunting" for treasures. But it all began in Florence!
