welcome to our little boutique!

Originally named after the iconic quarter in London known for it's jewllery and antique stores, Portobello Lane came to be in Melbourne, Australia in the late 1970's. We came on board in 2007 and in 2011 moved the whole kit and kaboodle with us, yes shop and Cat included, to the south west coast of France.


Our philosophy is that life should be simple. Keeping life simple allows serendipitous and lyrical moments to flow into your day. In our store we offer better quality bang for your buck, perhaps a little less bling, yet with touches of poetry. Fewer, more finely crafted, lovelier choices... 


Our passion for a simpler life extends to our respect for the environment and we do what we can to make a little difference in our daily business practices... using recycled/recyclable packaging, cycling the 15km round-trip to our nearest post office, working in natural day-light, etc


We may be a small team of two yet with a big heart and focus on customer service. We love to help and are always available to answer any questions you may have. Simply drop us a line using the contact box below. You can also call us, although if you are phoning from the other side of the planet please be aware we may not answer immediately due to the time difference, we could still be in our pyjamas...
