what i wouldn’t do
happy friday! i’m about to turn into a pumpkin after a day of running around. i’m going thru pics from my trip but instead of the maison show, wanted to head back to my favorite place on earth, the flea markets. between the gems scattered everywhere and the people who make it happen, it’s endlessly inspiring. during the trip i interviewed my favorite vendors to profile them for a series i’m doing for belle maison. (first one is set to run next month i think).
so there’s no real rhyme or reason to this post. it’s just random stuff that passed by. the market is probably starting to open right about now in paris come to think of it. it’s midnight here and missing it is such a sad thought, i’d love to be there right now!
oh well, let’s pretend we’ve got a coffee and croissant and just stroll through~
salon furniture: my weakness
digging through boxes is my passion!
of all the things i’ll pick up next time, fabric is priority. it’s easy to carry, mostly one of a kind and abundant.
i always leave with a ton of books. not as practical to carry as fabric but there’s nothing like leather bound binding.
why? cause it’s silly!
are you into doors and windows? i am completely.
these are a few shots from my friends who sell at clignancourt and will be in the articles. they talk about where they shop, what they collect, the family business and plans for the future.
i wanted to do the series cause it’s so easy to take the fleas for granted and run through them.
i admire and adore the people who show up to make it happen every single week come rain or shine.
whether you buy or not doesn’t even matter. it’s like disney; a place that’s just perfect, it’s own small world and i’m grateful for it.
well if you’re there this weekend enjoy, we’re there in spirit! bon weekend!
