About Trouvaille

Trouvaille developed in French from the word "trouver" (to find).

You've probably heard of "A Series of Unfortunate Events," but luckily, a trouvaille describes the opposite. A trouvaille is a lucky find — like when you happen upon your keys in the freezer after giving up on finding them.
