pictures from the fair

by Sharon Santoni

One happy blogger here (if a little weary) , a lovely day spent at the Paris fair, so much yummy stuff to see and to buy and to drool over.

I’ll do a proper loot shoot over the weekend, but here is a selection of pictures from the stands that caught my eye today.

Interspersed with some pics of the vendors, I never tire of seeing them setting up their tables and chairs and settling down for a serious meal, oblivious to everyone walking past – love it!

The good news is that I return to the same fair in a few days time; so if you see anything you really really want, then let me know, and I’ll try to get it for you!!

From your photos, you would need a truck to accommodate everything I would want you to buy for me from the fair, starting with the dresser with the wooden bowls on it (n the second photo). The beautiful fabrics from your loot would have to be included too. It’s a pity that my house is on the other side of France. Bisous and good hunting.

I really like the kitchen type chairs with a curved wooden back round a table with the white fabric with blue stripe down the middle. I love that shape.

Love these pictures. This takes me back to when I lived in Germany as a military brat in the 1960's and 1970's. My parents went to the French flea markets and collected antiques, mostly clocks. My mother had a passion for little tables where she would display her collectibles.

There are so many beautiful things I would love to have, but that little two tiered table in the last photo….oh my…I really think my heart skipped a beat. I know it sounds melodramatic but so be it. What is it called? Style? I don't know enough to know what to ask. I just know I love it. If anyone can share their knowledge, I would be grateful. Thank you for the incredible photos and the little visit to the market in my mind.
