About Kathee

“I grew up in California and both of my parents were interior designers. So, my love for antiques and vintage pieces started at the age of 15.  In California, I was a antique dealer in two different malls.  I also did all the top flea markets and antique shows up and down the coast. 

I moved to North Carolina in 2013 and opened two booth spaces prior to opening the French Farmer’s Wife barn six years ago. It now opens twice a year and buyers come from all over the country to shop French and European antiques. My Instagram and Facebook sales took off in a huge way, so after much encouragement and interest from my customers, I knew I needed this website.

I love to style my own home, which, as you can imagine, I even change around daily. My favorite style is rustic French. My other passion is gardening and incorporating antiques there. What do I collect? Ironstone, quilts, bread boards, dough bowl, books, iron doorstops, Barbola mirrors, French grain sacks and zinc, baskets and chandeliers.  I live with what I love!

I hope you’ll visit this site often, because I will add new pieces all the time: shipments of hand-picked items arrive often and you never know what one-of-a-kind treasure will show up here. Follow me on social media to see what I’m up to in my home, the barn, and here on the website.”
