France…
from the grotesques­ to the fabulous!! Paris… Go to the top of Notre Dame… See giant stone gargoyles overlook a magnificent city… where art, beauty and
fashion all converge…
Rising at dawn… off to the Flea Market…the famous Le Marche de Saint-Ouen… walking at a fast pace down the maze of alleyways… Marche Paul Bert... Marche Dauphine... 2,000 stalls to explore for the best finds… fabulous furniture to glorious junk… dealers shouting, “Regardez ici!”… porters toting oversized treasures through the crowds… at lunch I find a small cafe where everyone remembers you… a cassoulet... a croque monsieur and a glass of wine… or a roasted chicken with pomme frites...
Antique shopping can be found in the hilltop towns in Provence... Avignon... Bonnieux and Roussillon…
surrounded by lavender fields and cherry orchards… with beautiful churches and gothic architecture… courtyards that lead to antiquarian shops… L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue with lovely waterways… go early on
Sundays to markets with hundreds of dealers selling assorted antiques as well as curios and local produce…
trash to treasures!!

Or come to my store… see touches of France… my grotesque candlesticks in a verdigris finish (modeled after Parisian street figures)…intricate inlaid Boulle furniture... cupboards and
armoires that only the French can do...
or fantastic crystal chandeliers with beaded roping, pear shaped drops
and smokey crystals…

We all dream of France…the cuisine…the wine…the design…the beauty!!
