" Immerse yourself in Alsatian culture: discover numerous objects in reference to the historical trades in use in the region. "
It is a surprising private collection in an imposing farmhouse, located in Boofzheim in the heart of the Ried. It is the story of a collector who hunts for everything: from the early hours of the morning on the flea markets of our villages or during his forays to the flea markets and antique shops of the region. This enlightened amateur has been investing in his passion for over 40 years to unearth objects and furniture from the regional heritage. The barns and outbuildings of his farm are full of treasures that are tributes to the rural, craft and religious worlds of Alsace. More than 17,000 items bear witness to a bygone era and revive childhood memories. Entire worlds recreate the life of yesteryear in our countryside: from the butcher's shop to the bakery, via the dairy, from agricultural machinery to old toys, from period furniture to tableware, amidst sepia-toned photos... This teeming universe with the sweet scent of yesteryear resurrects and celebrates both the simple objects of everyday life and the forgotten tools and techniques.
