Have you always wanted to go to France on an antique buying trip? But you just never had the time or knew where to shop or how to get anything back across the ocean.

Well, Lolo is off to France once again and you can take advantage of his knowing eye and more than 20 years experience buying the things you love. Just "Let Lolo Know" and he can find that perfect piece for you, whether it's an antique rosary or a beautiful 19th Century Louis XV commode.

For the next two weeks we will be posting photos from his daily buying trips. If you see anything you like or if there is something you want him to find for you, then "Let Lolo Know" by emailing him at

We hope you enjoy following Lolo through the shops and markets of France as he searches for those quaint and unique pieces to fill your homes.
