The MFCH Brocante Tour
Join us for an antique tour in Paris and Normandy! Antique hunting, elegant living, French food and wine; an authentic insight into everyday French living.
The tour will start with coffee at Sharon’s home as we wander the garden getting to know each other. Then we are off exploring the Normandy countryside, shopping at Sharon’s favorite antique shops, attending a cooking class by an acclaimed cookbook author in an 18th-century farmhouse, watching a floral demonstration, and so much more!
The last two days of the tour we will use Paris as our base, visiting the famed antique fair at Chatou that happens just twice a year and Sharon will show us her favorite stands in Saint-Ouen, one of the largest antique markets, just outside of Paris.
Whether you are a first-time buyer, a window shopper or a serious collector, this tour has something for everyone. There’s no pressure to buy, but we will assist you with the logistics of bringing your loot home should you find things you can’t live without (and most people do).
From years of experience as a buyer and deep connections to this region and its best dealers, Sharon offers this unique tour as a way to combine antique buying with discovering Normandy and Paris, getting well off the beaten track. Whether you love linens, silver spoons, cutting boards, chairs or fine art, you will be sure to return home with a special treasure and beautiful memories of your time here in France.
