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.

Brocante Day at Le Potager

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.
Happy hunting!
