Outside our home - a former post office - in Red Hill, Victoria.
After many years running a busy graphic design company, Matt and I set up La Brocante in 2010 so that we could design and produce our own range of wall art, greeting cards and homewares.
Everything in our collection has a European or Australian vintage style. It’s the appeal of the old advertising posters from France, Italy and Spain … or the original photographs of a Tour de France peloton as it inches up Mont Ventoux in 1952 … or a 1932 promotional map of Paris that includes the grand monuments and metro lines.
We adore restoring these old images from our vast private collection of vintage ephemera as well as searching for other images that offer an interesting alternative to the usual prints that are more widely available.
We also own a retail store in Red Hill, Victoria, that is filled with ‘brocante’ - vintage finds from France & Belgium that we have sourced personally.
If you visit the Mornington Peninsula then please pop in to say hello. If you are further away then we hope you enjoy our online offerings!
As always if I can help in any way please let me know.
Penny & Matt xx
