Manager Nini Stucki:
"I love what I do!"

After roaming through the inspiring but very expensive Chateau des Antiquaires in Allaman, be sure to stop in at La Grange, the unique consignment shop operated by Nini Stucki.

There are often treasures to be found in this two story barn, an outbuilding of the chateau. The ever-cheerful owner, Nini Stucki, is a former ballerina who enjoyed a 14-year career dancing with the London Festival Ballet and the American Ballet Theater among other prestigious companies..

Stucki began dealing in antiques while she was still living in London and active in the world of ballet. She opened a small store in New Kings Road specialized in Art Nouveau and Art Deco, still periods for which she still feels a particular affinity. In the mid 1980s, this Vaud native returned to Switzerland to open a shop just a few kilometers from her childhood home in Buchillon.

"I love what I do,"says Stucki, beaming over her desk which is inevitably piled high with newspaper clippings, articles about antiques, and old issues of La Gazette de L'Hotel Drouot.

La Grange is a Depot Vente, or consignment shop, but Stucki accepts only items which have some artistic or antique value.
