Flâneur- a term used by the French 19th century poet and critic Charles Baudelaire to mean a person who walks the city in order to experience it.
For several years now, I have been finding antique and vintage items for clients and designers in my capacity as an Associate Floral Designer for Jo's Blooms, a custom floral design company. I am now turning this enjoyable activity into a full-fledged business, The Antique Flâneur- Strolling through the city, the country and cyberspace to find your antique and vintage collectibles.
I invite you to visit my website The Antique Flâneur which details the 4 services that I offer for both private clients and interior designers:
1. Finding antique and vintage accessories in porcelain, pottery, silver and so on from colonial to modern to adorn your home or for a special gift for a wedding, anniversary or birthday.
2. Researching antiques and vintage collectibles that you already own in terms of maker, style, date and relative value.
If you are in the New York City/New Jersey area:
3. Arranging your accessories from a whole house, an entire room to just a cluttered china cabinet for maximum effect or hanging pictures in a beautiful and eye catching grouping.
4. Accompanying you on an antique buying trip to antique shops, antique shows and auctions in order to assist you in choosing the right piece of furniture, china service or any antique or vintage decorative accessory to embellish your home.
Please join the mailing list and be on the lookout for special offers and updates. If you are an interior designer, I hope to help you find unique items for your clients. If you are an antique dealer, I would like to work with you in the near future as I look for vintage and antique objects for clients.
If you are looking for a particular item now, email me from the Contact Me page at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mention The Great Within and receive a 10% discount on any one service I offer.
Many thanks and I look forward to helping you find a treasure in the future!
