Nomibis: A Vintage Shop in Reims, France, Shoppable on Instagram

January 16, 2019

A flea market in France you can shop on Instagram? Julie recently spotted Nomibis, run by Fabienne Nominé and companion Pascal Bisson, who first opened a shop in the city of Reims, France (once the site of the coronations of the French kings), but ten years later discovered that they could sell things more artfully and more quickly on Instagram. Now they use their own Reims home to style their found “antiques and eccentricities,” then post them on their Instagram feed (@nomibis) and on their website. There are no prices listed, so buyers need to reach out to the couple directly to sort a price, and without the need to close up shop at the end of the day, things go quickly—but the shop is frequently restocked with new finds. Take a look at what’s on offer (and available as of writing).

Lo and behold, Nomibis had, for a limited time, a pair of Low Fireside Chairs in deep green, since sold out (though we’re hoping something similar will return soon).
Currently available: an Adjustable Stool from the Napoleon III Style era in a glossy black hue.
