custom searches

Did you know that we do custom searches? Well we do! If there's something that you are dying to have at your next special event or photo shoot but you don't see it in our inventory don't fret - shoot us a message and we will begin the search (or treasure hunt as we like to call it)!

Here's how a custom search works:

1. Send us an e-mail telling exactly what you are looking for - the more information, the better!
2. We do some initial research and get back to you letting you know whether we think we can find it and whether it's something that we want to add to our collection.
3. If it's something that we think would fit in great with our inventory, the search begins! 
4. If it's something that we're not looking to add to our inventory we'll give you the option of purchasing it from us. 
5. Hopefully you will get an e-mail saying..."success - we found it!"
6. You have the picture-perfect decor that you were dreaming of!

A few things to keep in mind when it comes to custom searches:

1. We can't guarantee that we'll be able to find what you're looking for. The beauty of one-of-a-kind furniture and decor is that you really never know what you are going to come across. Sometimes the treasure-hunting stars align and other times they don't. But trust us we will do our best to find what you're looking for!
2. The earlier you contact us the better. We are much more likely to be able to find what you are looking for with at least a few months notice.
3. Be flexible. The less restrictions you give us, the better. (i.e. I want a vintage Parisian street sign  vs. I want a vintage Parisian street sign from pre-1920 and it has to be from these three streets....) Guess which custom search is more likely to end in "success - we found it!"? Exactly.

So there you have it - custom searches in a nutshell. 

Is there anything you want us to start searching for? We'd be happy to start the treasure hunt!
