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.

French Brocante Treasures

It's a little like Christmas in October around here! The loot from our September brocante trip with Sharon Santoni, of My French Country Home, as well as our week in and around Paris, has arrived!
We have been busy unpacking, cleaning and researching these treasures that we picked, packed and patiently waited for their safe arrival.
This is just a peek at some the items we brought back. I believe we have compiled a unique assortment of antique and vintage items. 
We are planning a one day brocante event at Le Potager to showcase these French treasures. 
It will be held toward the end of October. 
I am honored to have had so many of our wonderful customers following this buying trip via my blog and asking about the loot. The scheduling is in the works... stay tuned for date and time. 
In the meantime more loot photos to follow.
Thank you very much for visiting
Happy Hunting!


  1. Hi you two!!
    Great seeing all the great stuff you two found! That trip was so much fun....I can't wait to go back again. We received all our things too....only bummer was our iron bench legs were cracked. Tom is going to try and fix them though. I also would love to go back to that sweet little spot you found in Paris...looks like my kind of shop:). Take care!

    1. Hi Sarah (& Tom), So great to hear from you. Wow, you said it... we can't wait to go back either. I am so sorry about the bench legs, if anyone can fix them it is Tom. We had several items damaged in shipping too and may be able to fix one or two- oh well, in the grand scheme of things the trip was so wonderful we can't dwell on it. The shop you mentioned in Paris was really quaint, you really would love it. Talk to you soon!

  2. Wish I was closer so I could attend your sale!! Maybe you could do one online for the rest of us to see what you have? But I can't imagine anything will be left after your event at the store.

    Hopefully you can fix those couple broken items. I guess that goes with the territory of shipping overseas like that.


Thank you for leaving a comment. I love to hear from fellow bloggers. Let me know what you think about my treasures or share a treasure of your own. Happy hunting!
