…and you don’t even have to live in Paris! Enter Vintageweave – one of the best home stores I have EVER been in. Like many of the boutiques I visit, I drove by multiple times and kept saying to myself – I HAVE to go in there. Well finally, I did and I was in complete heaven!
Vintageweave is a magical store in Los Angeles that will literally transport you to another place – imagine the most amazing French home goods store meets a mesmerizing Parisian market. It is all here…Cote Bastide dishes and scents, pillows, house wares, Marseille soaps, linens, candles, Mariage Frères tea (my fave!), vintage signs, vintage apothecary jars, antique frames – all straight from France, each piece perfectly hand selected.
To add to my visit, I had the privilege of meeting owner, Kathy Delgado, who was kind enough to keep the store open while I shopped around after closing. She opened up Vintageweave over 6 years ago and scours France 4 times a year to find all these beautiful things for her retail store. But that is not all – at Vintageweave, Kathy also consults on set designs, creates displays for fellow retailers, and even does interior design for her clients with the pieces from her store. She is so sweet and fun to talk to, you will feel like you have known her for years by the time you leave – she just has that warm way about her.
Vintageweave is open Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 12-4pm or by appointment. But if you can’t make it during those times, don’t fret – your French finds are only a click away…and she ships worldwide!
Between talking with Kathy and finding a million reasons why you will want to redecorate, the only way you’re leaving Vintageweave will be because your parking meter is about to run out – note to self: bring A LOT of quarters.
