Kay : your Personal Shopper for Vintage and Antiques If you are planning a trip to France and keen to embark on some antique / vintage / decoration hunting, but don’t speak the language or don’t know where to begin … look no further ! After almost 30 years in Paris, 27 of which I have spent running a high-end lighting business and, more recently, an online vintage store, I can take you to all the main attractions and many more ‘insider’ venues. If you love art, design and decoration in general, there are dozens of options I can propose during your stay, in addition to the ‘de rigueur’ flea markets, including auctions, galleries and visiting craftsmen and artists in their studios.
For those with more time, or who have already covered Paris, why not join me for a couple of days in Normandy where I live part-time. They say that Normandy is the ‘attic of France’ and it’s true ! In addition to my favourite selection of shops, we can visit some car boot sales and old farms which are living museums in their own right. And of course, discover the beautiful landscape and architecture of the region as well as its distinctive cuisine.
And if you still have time left or are traveling with friends/family who would prefer to shop for clothes and accessories, no worries, my friend and well-established personal shopper Noémie K (http://www.noemiek.com) can take care of all your needs.
As a British citizen, English is my mother tongue, however, after nearly 3 decades in France je parle couramment le français (et même un peu de cauchois), parlo anche un po d’Italiano, 我可以用廣東話由一數到一百，又可以响餐廳點到菜, as I grew up in Hong Kong till I was 13.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for a quote for a 100 % tailor-made visit including, if required : – hotel/ restaurant reservations – airport pick up and/or personal chauffeur during your stay – interpreter – child care /babysitting – trains / plane reservations – shipping your purchases back home
Finally, if you DON’T have time to visit France but STILL want to shop, please do not hesitate to send me your list. I will be happy to source for you and arrange shipment. Warm regards Kay
