Welcome to Foragers

On Line Antiques Store ...



Have you ever noticed that a lot of homes look very similar inside these days? Many do not show the character of their occupiers – they can look like a show home or one of the homes renovated on TV shows. It is a real joy to visit a home that is different, where effort has been made to curate a look which shows us something of the person who created it.

This is exactly where antique, vintage and second hand items come into the picture. You can have a home which is almost completely unavailable to someone else, because the items in it are not all purchased from the big box retailers.  Its all about how you put the items you love together in a way that you like.

The key word for me is: juxstaposition - the fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect. For example, I love the look of an ornate Victorian piece next to a sleek mid century item. This draws the eye and seems to make both items stand out for their own virtues.

To add to the joy, this design style is great for the planet and great for your bank balance. What an adventure you can have touring the antique and vintage shops, finding great items on-line, on Trademe and in op shops (while there, do check out the clothing racks as we need to reduce textiles going into our landfill!).

We have a great selection of items to choose from here at Foragers to make your house a home. Please enjoy browsing, and contact us at foragers@xtra.co.nz if we can help. If you live in Christchurch we can arrange a viewing of a piece that interests you too.
