Vintage French Shops For Kids

French Vintage for Kids' Rooms: French Vintage for Kids' Rooms: Wicker Children's Chair

We’re in the throes of ren­o­vat­ing our house and hope to fin­ish a fourth bed­room for our daugh­ter Savan­nah by the end of the sum­mer. Luck­ily for us, the flea mar­ket sea­son is in full swing, so Sat­ur­day morn­ings are spent scour­ing local sales.

Of course, if we don’t find what we’re look­ing for at a vil­lage flea, we can always turn to one of the many excel­lent Etsy sell­ers or online mom & pop shops. I have a lit­tle black book full of inspir­ing French shops, all who know how to curate and style.

Here are a few of my favorite lesser-known shops…

French Vintage for Kids' Rooms: Vintage Tomado-Style Shelf

Vin­tage Tomado-Style Shelf
Avail­able for $132 from Trendy Lit­tle.

Trendy Lit­tle is a new-to-me shop on Big Car­tel that spe­cial­izes in vin­tage design for kids. This wall shelf would be per­fect for a pre­teen or teenager’s room. I really love their vin­tage maps and 50s gar­lands as well—scroll down the sold sec­tion to get a good idea of their style.

French Vintage for Kids' Rooms: Vintage Wicker Crib

Vin­tage Wicker Crib
Avail­able for $335 from L’Atelier du Petit Parc.

L’Atelier du Petit Parc is a ris­ing star in the online French children’s world. The qual­ity of their prod­ucts and styling is impres­sive, and I love pop­ping in to see their new finds. This crib is reserved, but the shop renews its stock often and always has a tempt­ing selec­tion of beds, chairs, desks, and acces­sories. Love!

French Vintage for Kids' Rooms: Antique Iron Bed

Antique Iron Bed
Avail­able for $600 from L’Atelier Chari­vari.

L’Atelier Chari­vari is a trend­set­ter, as far as I’m con­cerned. Spe­cial­iz­ing in fur­ni­ture and decor from the 40-80s, this shop offers a fine selec­tion of beds, wardrobes, and desks for chil­dren. I love their eclec­tic taste, refresh­ing color schemes, and beau­ti­ful styling. You have to be quick, inven­tory moves fast here!

French Vintage for Kids' Rooms: Art Deco Transformable Crib / Sofa French Vintage for Kids' Rooms: Baumann Desk and Chair

Art Deco Trans­formable Crib/Sofa & Bau­mann Desk and Chair
Avail­able for $643 and $290, respec­tively, from Baos.

If you’re look­ing for some­thing a bit more eye-catching, head on over to Baos. Based in Mar­seille, this online shop offers amaz­ing finds with strong graphic appeal. All would work per­fectly in a young child or a teen’s room. Why didn’t I have a play pen like this one in the 60s?

Don’t let lan­guage be a bar­rier! If you don’t under­stand French, online trans­la­tion tools are pretty accu­rate these days.
