  1. Oh Alison, you are unique,although others may imitate your style and ideas, they will never be able to bring those words to life,especially with the humour and honour that jumps out from the pages of Brocante Home. Try not to be too upset and realise that people always recognise true quality when they see it. Chin up.

  2. Alison, i am sorry to hear about the copycats. As someone who has loved all things vintage since being small (thanks to my grandmother, i think), we all owe you a debt of gratitude for helping to spread the word. I also run my own blog, and although it's definitely not a copy of yours, it shares your ethos of 'home' being somewhere special.
    But like sue said, you're unique, as is Brocante, and people can rip it off all they want, but it won't be the same!

  3. Ditto to the other comments. Yep, they say that 'imitation is the highest form of flattery' and all that other stuff that's supposed to make you feel better when someone straightout steals your ideas. It matters little when you see someone else taking credit for your imagination and creativity … but, as Helen points out, copiers can not survive for long riding on another's creative coattails! Smile Alison … it won't be for long .

  4. Oh Alison, I feel terrible for you, and so angry on your behalf. I really felt I had come home when I found this website, and the whole brocante essence has come to mean a lot to me in these months since I discovered you. I hate the idea of something so special being abused. I am glad though that you have bought it up here so we all know about it. When such shameful things are done, the perpetrators should be made aware that we all know, and do not approve.

  5. There will only ever be one Ali Mark and Fin and subsequently only one Brocante Home.You your family and your website have a special individuality that many may want but believe me they will never have. Keep entertaining and enlightening us but most of all just keep on being you. Love to you all. Barbie
