About us

After four beautiful years raising our family in La Caille in the Poitou-Charentes region of France, the pull of family connections in the sunny Bay of Plenty brought us home.

We couldn’t return without bringing a little piece of France with us though; frequenting brocante markets became a bit of a habit during our time there and we amassed a huge collection of French vintage curiosities. It’s hard to walk past the charm and history of items like these!

So OOPLAH! was born – our own French Vintage Store.  Every year we return to France seeking out more interesting and beautiful things to refresh the collection. With a focus on unique pieces, we have created a space echoing the market feel, somewhere you can sift through and find something that nobody else has, something just for you.
