A Shop Reminder & Shipping Rates


Just as a reminder, new shop items will become available tomorrow, Monday, at 3 p.m. Paris time. If you'd like to convert this to your local time, a helpful tool is available here.

For those of you who live outside of France, and as some of you may already know, on January 1 changes to La Poste's international shipping rates went into effect. The changes include rate increases in some cases, so if you place an order and the shipping cost seems higher than expected, this is the reason behind it (as always, if you're overcharged for shipping, you'll receive a refund for the overcharges). 

Combined shipping is one way to compensate for this, as it's very often more economical than shipping one item at a time (no obligations :). And on a positive note, recent changes in currency values have resulted in a more favorable exchange rate for some of you who are international customers.

If you have any questions about shipping, please feel free to contact me.

It's always been my goal to provide the most secure shipping at the best rate possible, and I will continue to make that a high priority.

Thank you for your visits to the Petits Détails shop and blog!

Hello Again


Hello again. It's been a little while since I last posted or added new items in the shop.

In October I received a wake-up call related to my health, which motivated me to take a break in order to focus solely on that. After making quite a few changes in my daily life and lifestyle, I'm finally now feeling much better and am so happy to be back.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the shop or blog during that time, as well as to all of you who wrote to me. I apologize for disappearing so suddenly.

Over the past several months I've been immersed in the very interesting subjects of health, wellness, and self-care rather than the wonderful world of antiques and flea markets, so please bear with me as I get back up to speed in the shop. 

Starting next week, new items will become available weekly, on Mondays at 3 p.m. (15:00) Paris time / Central European Time (CET). As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

-:- Wishing you all the best in 2015! -:-

A Change of Plans


Hello, this is just a short note to let you know that due to personal circumstances (nothing worrisome or serious), I unfortunately have to postpone until after the first of the year the shop update that was scheduled for November 6.

I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and will keep you posted on my blog.

-:- Wishing you a nice end of the year -:-
-:- Bonne fin d'année  -:-
