My Last Vide Grenier Before the Move

The movers come on a week and people think I am crazy, but I just had to visit one last market today.  Our town had their annual vide grenier, and these are always my favorite places to shop.  It was a family affair this morning.  The whole family was ready for church so we could leave straight from the market to go to church.  This photos were all taken after we got home from church and I had some more help from my littlest man.

My first buy was the tea kettle at the bottom, I now have 7 or 8 in similar styles and sizes. I am going to have a lot of scrubbing to do when we are moved back and settled.

My next stop brought the two pink enamel pots with lids, the blue enamel pot with lid and the turquoise scale.  I couldn’t get these in my bag fast enough.  And just like that, 5 minutes in to shopping my rolling market bag was full.  I pushed on knowing that if I found anything else I would find a way to bring it home.

As you can see I did manage to find a way to bring a few more things home.

The enamel numbers were a great find, there is a little Spode set tucked into the great drawer/shelf.  The ironstone tea pot is so pretty.

The big Roche balance was my last find of the day and I could barely get it to the car.  It is big, heavy and dirty and I was wearing a white dress.  The vendor was worried that I was going to get my dress dirty carrying the scale, but I couldn’t leave it behind.

In the end it was a great day and a great way to close this chapter of our time in France.  I don’t know if I will get to come back and do more shopping one day, but right now I feel pretty lucky to have done as much shopping here as I have.

I hope you enjoyed another walk through all of my vide grenier finds.

French Vide Grenier Finds

This week I found a new favorite store and visited a large local vide grenier.  I was asked if I could find a specific item on Saturday, Sunday morning I woke up ready to do some searching.  Would you believe the second table I visited on Sunday morning had exactly what I was looking for. The tall white with green pitcher is one of my new favorites.  The two green jars I found are so heavy!DSC_0067

The blue finds were pretty exciting this week as well.  The ceramic trivet was made in France, the cheese tray is made from Limoges plates and the soup toureen is part of a 9 piece plate setting set from West Germany.  The large bowl is marked GBN on the bottom.  I did a little research and found that this was made in Germany around 1930.

Pinks and reds are always an exciting find for me.  I got a set of 6 of the S napkins.

I adore the cast iron cookware by Le Creuset and others like this Doufou, but it is all so heavy.

And finally, baskets and linens.  There is also a tiny little suitcase, hat racks and a pewter tray.

I felt so thankful this weekend to be able to have wonderful weather and a great turn out of vendors.  I can not believe that my time living here is almost over.

I will have plenty of souvenirs to remember my time here by though that is for sure!
