So I told you yesterday that Jeni from Found Vintage Rentals was here for 24 hours, shopping for vintage and brocante items for her business. Today I get to show you what she found in one afternoon and one morning. Quite a few pictures here, but that's because there is so much to show!
YES, you read that right, Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning and we found her this lovely loot.
On Saturday afternoon I introduced her to my favourite brocante stores. As you can see she made friends pretty fast and in a couple of hours she found enough to fill our giant van.
She loved all the stores I took her to. They were very contrasting in styles from Christelle's so chic boutique ...
..... to Laurent's very full antique shop where she found two beautiful desks .....
....to Jacky's bursting-at-the-seams aladdin's cave store. I can tell you that there is enough antique furniture here to keep Jeni happy for years to come! :)
Sunday morning we were at the first fair before dawn, but when the sun rose it revealed this beautiful view.
Here Jeni was lucky again as she found more treasure including a mannequin that she really wanted, a selection of charming vintage chairs and some stunning linen baskets.
I always think that we have more fun shopping in beautiful surroundings! :)
then home to unpack and repack and list and count and sigh and enjoy ....
These brocante trips are really fun. I always combine a variety of places to visit, and the timetable is tailor made to my client's wishes. If you would like to come brocante shopping, or garden visiting with me I have some dates still available for day trips from Paris, or for an overnight trip.
If you would like a slightly longer stay, there are also still places available on the brocante tour that I am hosting here in September. This will be a wonderful tour including accommodation at the chateau d'Emalleville belonging to my friend Frederique, Antique shopping in local stores, a major antique fair and a couple of smaller fairs. A meal at my home and visits to places of interest in our lovely valley. If you'd like more information don't hesitate to contact me.
