My husband and 3 year old daughter moved from our family farm in the Cairngorms in Scotland, to New Zealand in 2006 to farm here in the Wairarapa. Since then, we added another 2 daughters to the family and we have loved bringing them up as Kiwi kids in the stunning New Zealand countryside.
Originally a Landscape Architect, I decided I wanted to combine my love of gardening, design and antiques with a love of travel, so once my youngest daughter was old enough to go to preschool, I set up Vintage European from our home on the farm.
Since 2013, I have been travelling back to Europe to select beautiful and practical vintage pieces for your home from antiques fairs and suppliers across the UK and mainland Europe. Vintage European now imports several containers a year full of simple, rustic and fascinating vintage furniture and collectables, each one with it's own story. We compliment the vintage collections with unique new products from carefully curated European stockists to offer you a full range of homewares and garden items which you won't find anywhere else in New Zealand.
