It’s all about the mix.

 

Part treasure box, part art gallery, the Bobbie Medlin shop is a delight. French flea market finds, unique jewelry, sculpture, paintings, and even that “perfect gift” are waiting for you. We are also proud to be the Northwest retailer for the French ceramics company, Astier de Villatte.

If you, too, believe it’s all about the mix, come and visit. No matter your budget, we’ve got something for you. You’ll be glad to have us on your list of favorite shops.

Astier de villatte

Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli founded Astier de Villatte in 1996. Following the tradition of the great 18th century Parisian ceramic studios, they employ Tibetan artisans to create their charming, one-of-a-kind ceramics in black terracotta with a milky white glaze.

Lightweight and fragile-looking, the pieces are both strong and durable and wholly unique. They are now one of the last major studios in Paris keeping this tradition alive.

Alongside their ceramics, Astier de Villatte make scented hand care products, incense and candles. 

Our inventory is constantly refreshed. 

Special orders are encouraged.

This cachepot with swan handles is inspired by French incense burners of the 18th/19th centuries. Four little paw feet add to the details. Astier de Villatte, of course. Made by skilled hands in their Paris workshop.

Now in the shop.

This picnic gazebo between the towering cedars looked to me like something out of a fairy garden. Charming as it was, it was much too cold for a picnic on this January day.

When practical meets beautiful. This bowl by Astier de Villatte takes my breath away—the scalloped edge, the perfect fluting. And all in their dreamy, milky glaze. 

There are only two left in the shop.
