Well, the day finally arrived... brocante day at the shop. Our customers had been anticipating this event since our return from France last month.
I took some very quick shots after set-up and before opening.
We proudly presented all of our fabulous French treasures in true brocante style.
Tucked in the petite alley-way along side the shop, we recreated a flea market similar to those we shopped throughout the Normandy region and Paris.
There was so much interest in the items we brought back that we decided everything would be available for purchase on one day, beginning at a set and advertised time.
It was great to see people waiting patiently to claim their treasures. Alas, they had waited long enough... On your mark, get set, GO!
It was a fabulous day, although entirely too hot (in the 90's), that was enjoyed by all.
We enjoyed sharing the stories of our trip, where items came from and the history behind them.
Merci to everyone involved- from our new friends in France to our family and friends for their encouragement and of course to our customers for their continued support, for it is you that allow us to continue on this journey.
Onward to our Fall and Christmas events.
Back to local treasure hunting and sharing those items with you very soon.
Thank you very much for reading, it means the world to me.
