About The French Antique Shop

A subsidiary of French & Co


The weather was unseasonably cold and wet in June when Bernice Ryan returned to France on her annual buying trip to source stock for her shop, French & Co, located in Rathdowne Village, Carlton North. Every year, Bernice spends a month travelling throughout France seeking out the beautiful, unique or just plain quirky to fill a container destined for French & Co.

From Vintage Antiques in Auckland to French & Co in Melbourne

After establishing the business as Vintage Antiques in Auckland NZ 10 years ago, and expanding into Wellington 5 years ago, Bernice relocated to Melbourne 31/2 years ago.
