My passion, after my family of course, is Treasure Hunting. The simple beauty of things from by-gone eras have always spoken to me. Whether these treasures are found at a flea market, fine antique store, estate sale, thrift shop, or in the family attic, surprises abound.
As an interior designer, I believe it is vital to balance your decor by including found and family treasures. Surrounding yourself with things you love should always be the goal, from there you will find your true style.
As I shop, I may have a client in mind or I may want to resell at our french flea market or in my shop. I am lucky to have several outlets for my treasures including my own home! I plan to share my searching, hunting, travels, and treasures with you and encourage you to enjoy adding your treasures to your home.

Treasures Everywhere We Looked

Today was one of our big shopping days for the shop. Researching, planning, designing and of course buying. I am often asked, where we get the items we sell at Le Potager? It is a tough question to answer since one vignette alone may actually have items from dozens of different vendors. We pick and choose, ever so carefully, to create our signature look. Our purchases today came from around the world, Belgium, France, India and the U.S. to name a few.
It was wonderful to see a renewed spirit in the wholesale/retail world today. Everyone seemed very encouraged by the increased sales when compared to the past several years.
The choices were vast and I am happy to say we expanded our horizons by creating some new looks with new items coupled with some of our good olde favorites.
The hardest part of all of this shopping is not getting to bring anything home with you. All items should ship to us in the next three or four week, just in time to celebrate spring! Next stop, some flea market hunting for loads of treasures.
