If you have followed me on instagram (@BrocanteTreasures) then you have seen some of these photos. I had an amazing week in France and I found so many great treasures.
This little collection was my first purchase in France. I landed, got in my rental car, and drove to the Porte de Vanves. This HEAVY set of copper, poissionier, tin and brown transfer ware caught my eye. They were not marked, but it is always worth asking for a price. I was so happy to walk away with these treasures, but I also had to carry them for the entire shopping trip. I was well on my way to rebuilding my brocante muscles.
Children’s books in French, antique rebus plates, and an old pair of binoculars.
Would you believe that I was looking for a vintage toy sewing machine for a friend? I was so pleased to find these 2 waiting for me.
I found stacks of these vintage fashion magazines. The graphics are just amazing!
While in Paris I decided I needed a few more pieces of vintage clothing. There are a couple of shops on or near the Rue de Rivoli and I was in vintage clothing heaven. I bought 2 big bags and when I got home to try them on almost every single piece fit. I am thrilled and have already worn a couple of them.
After collecting my treasures in my rental car during the week I was finally able to unload everything when I made it to my place out in the country. This was my haul for the beginning of the week.
I love maps, and my customers always have too. I have a stack of vintage French maps just waiting for your ideas and projects.
These pieces of sheet music are more like pieces of art. I was able to get a stack of works still ready to play or waiting for your next project.
Copper, rebus plates, a statue, and a coffee grinder.
This set is currently available in my Esty Shop, Brocante Treasures TX. It is a petite little set, but absolutely gorgeous.
More of those itty bitty little smalls that are so intriguing, and easy to pack.
From my morning in Caen. Do you know what came home with me from this photo?
If you guessed the enamelware pitchers, you were correct! This Ouest France bank sign is amazing as well. Did you even notice the crate tucked in behind? I love my sidewalk loot shoots and the crazy looks I get from people.
Here is my one furniture purchase for the trip. It is a gorgeous plate rack. It is a good thing I have plenty of plates to fill it up with.
In one shop I almost missed this sweet enamel coffee pot, can you believe that?! If I have the time I love to walk around a store or a market from both directions.
Here are the treasures that will be making their way home to me at another time. See anything that catches your eye?
These two are not for sale, but aren’t they pretty? Brown is my color that I have decided to collect for myself and these pieces could not be left behind.
And of course, more buttons.
My very last purchase the morning I left. How adorable are these two?
I hope you enjoyed this extended loot shoot from my trip to France. If you see anything that caught your eye you can check on my Etsy page or contact me directly.
