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.

Unique Location = Great Treasures

My schedule has been totally different this week, with no real time to shop and being away from home, I was still able to find a fun, unique and even a little wild, shopping spot. I had just one hour and a small set budget. So I began hunting. Room after room, front patio and huge outdoor yard all chock full of everything one could be looking for and more.
I featured the painted lady in a post earlier this week, however all of these other treasures I found at this fun hole-in-the-wall shop.
Just a peek out the front window. The owners of this unique shop have been consulting on a TV program as antique appraisers. They now filming their own show set to air in a couple of months. More info on that at a later date.
The pug just spoke to me. He is in fine condition and has wonderful details. I love his collar and tag. 
Three small Shakespeare books, a lovely silver filagree dish perfect for holding a candle and a really great vintage silver pitcher just begging for a big bouquet of flowers.
Found this silver framed mirror plateau added a petite vintage Eiffel Tower along with the crisp black and white aerial photo postcard of the Arc de Triomphe the start of a themed vignette.
I loved the change of location, I was fortune to find some fun items for our Paris Flea Market. Back in my local groove and looking forward to the Flea this weekend. Happy hunting!
