I love to start with a disclaimer! Here goes:
This week's Sunday Brocante was actually on Saturday -- a 'Samedi Brocante'! This is a group of brocanteurs that I have visited a few times in different towns, so it was an easy decision to shift the schedule and go on Saturday.... the FIRST really gorgeous, very warm, very wonderful SUNNY spring Saturday in Normandy. Yes! The spring cleaning halted, the weeds in the garden uttered a united sigh of relief, and the beach waited...and waited... and missed me, I hope.
It's only been one week since the launch of the shop on Etsy and Whoa-Nelly! It's been a lot of hours, photos, organizing, converting (finding out the current euro/dollar exchange--ouch!) and mostly d-r-e-a-m-i-n-g! I love this--I am truly blissed out! Searching, finding, creating, dusting-off, and exploring from every angle each day for several hours--it's not so bad....and then the weekend rolls around and it's time to get in the car and see what's next!
Brocantes, brocantes, brocantes...okay, yes. The brocante was in the 'front yard' of a large church and the sun was shining! (Did I mention that already? I'm sorry I am a bit fixated on sunshine!) My first find--spotted from 50 yards, was this wonderful bird cage. It was my favorite find of the day and sold a mere 10 minutes after I posted it on Sunday Brocantes.....much to my
Other finds -- a large wire apple basket, a faded and chipped and so lovely wooden carrying box, another gorgeous demijohn, a vintage kitchen measuring glass.....to name a few!
Until next weekend -- Bonne semaine les amis!
