My Etsy Focus this week is on an eclectic little store called Ally’s Antiques, which I realised after seeing it’s pretty wares is actually based out of Oxford – where I live! So I get to support a local store this week which makes me even happier.
“My name is Ally, I am French and I live in Oxford, UK. For as long as I can remember, I have always been rummaging in car boots and antiques fairs. I love collecting vintage artefacts and I recently discovered a passion for British ceramics and blue and white china.
With an academic background in Japanese and British art history, I am now starting a career in antiques and art dealing. The thing I love most about this job is the background work: I love to research the history of an item, find out who made it and why, and share my discoveries with my clients. I will try my best to do the same with the articles I sell on this page, so please let me know if you have any question about them!” Alexandra Domeracki
I love the eclectic mix of antique, vintage, retro and second-hand that Alexandra features in her store – there’s a little something for everyone.
