About UsI opened my first shop in Nantes (Brittany) in 1984, I was 20.
I work now in Nantes and Paris.
I am on ebay France (since 2008) user name: "Zarafabrocante", please see my feed-backs.
"Zarafa" is the name of the first giraffe arrived in France in 1827, as a present from the Egyptian pasha to Charles X king of France. The giraffe spent the whole winter in the South of France because of the climate. The inhabitants made her a coat. She then walked through the entire country on foot, followed by some curious people and arrived in Paris cheered by Paris citizens. She spent the rest of her life in the acclimation garden of Paris.
Charles X period (1824-1830) is my favorite one.
