Martine Boré Antiques Ltd. is a second generation antique business located in the heart of Ambelside West Vancouver. The Boré family has been a part of the West Vancouver Community since the 1980s when Carmen Boré opened at 1867 Marine Dr. West Vancouver. In the 1990s Carmens Daughter Martine began learning the trade from her mother joining her on buying trips to Europe, England, and France. They visited antique markets, grand estates and the multiudes of antique dealers in Paris, London and the South of France. Much of their time was spent in the Southwest of France where the Boré Family roots go back to the 18th century. After spending a decade living in Europe herself, Martine returned to Canada and continued the family business in West Vancouver in the 2000s.
