- A lucky find.
“The rare Roman coin was a trouvaille for the archaeology student.”
“My train ticket was in my pocket the whole time — what a trouvaille!”
“That vintage lace dress in your size is such a trouvaille.”
French, mid-19th century
Why this word?
You might have read or watched “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” but luckily, a trouvaille describes the opposite. A trouvaille is a lucky find — such as when you happen upon your keys in the freezer after giving up on finding them.
