Easter Monday is a holiday here in France. I was on my favorite website, http://www.vide-greniers.org, and I saw there was going to be a brocante not far from our house. I was up and at them bright and early Monday morning. These yellow signs make my heart beat faster. These brocantes are good, they are organized by a company, they usually have good parking, and a good mix of vendors.
This vendor had a great collection of vintage items. His prices were fair and his selection was great. I settled for this pile of goodies. I took this picture so I would remember to go back and collect everything. The vendor told me that the grey box and the little white chair had gotten a lot of attention while I was away.
This was my favorite find of the day, this mother and child bust is beautiful.
These vintage jars all came home with me. I love old glass jars.
This load of treasures took 2 boxes to pack up. I love transfer ware and Limoges and there was plenty to be found.
After carrying all of my finds back to the car and then unloading them back at the house I got everything out and took a look at it. This grey box is so fun.
This sweet little chair is holding all of the Limoges I found today.
These tureens are small, but pretty.
Brown transfer ware is my favorite.
I found so many fun things today.
Here is all of it. I have spent the afternoon washing everything.
If it seems like I have been buying a lot lately, you are right. I have been busy collecting as many treasures as I can to fit into a shipment that I am having sent back to Texas when we move this summer. We have our personal shipment of things that we will be sending home, but I have taken the leap and will be filling a container with treasures to bring back and sell as well. I will be in the Houston area so if you are in Texas next fall keep an eye out for Brocante Treasures!
