The Three French Hens are three friends: Pippa, Mandi, Linda who run Brocante Vintage Sales "Home and Garden Collectables" often located at Silcocks Farm, Grange Road, St Michaels, Tenterden
Thirty years after being friends at school Pippa and Mandi were reunited by a mutual friend Linda at a party. It is a small world indeed. From that first reunion we quickly discovered that we had a great deal in common. Our tastes are similar. All are creative and artistic in various ways and each of us has a love for home-making with a style leaning towards the nostalgic and eclectic.
Mandi lives a large part of the year in France and Pippa has a daughter there so they are well placed to trawl the French markets, brocante sales and vide greniers.
When we are all here in the UK there is nothing better than to spend a day together at local antique markets and shops, however, we have come to the point where our houses are full! So what to do?
With such common ground between us and the ease of our relationship we have decided to form a small business. ‘The Three French Hens’. We source beautiful things throughout the year from France and the UK. There will be some larger pieces of furniture and many small household and garden items.
Our aim is to offer something to everyone and we think that you will find that our prices are realistic.
