French Brocante Meets American Flea



Now....About that Big Event!

WHO is SHE?

Who is 52 FLEA teaming up with for their first big Sale?

Did you guess correctly?


If you guessed The Brocantess ... you were right!




The Brocantess has been staying in the south of France...
... searching and treasure hunting all the available marche aux puces and brocantes ....
I know, I know...don't you wish it was YOU and ME over there brocanting ?
...it would surely feel like we were in heaven...sigh...

But... The Brocantess has done the job for us...
... and expertly I might add!
She has been shipping containers full of French treasure back home...



...(and here comes the really exciting part!)

... She and I, together,
are going to hold an EVENT... our first SALE !

The Brocantess of the French Brocante and...
... 52 Flea representing the American Flea Market !

I'm calling it... a sort of...

.... French Farmhouse Sale...



This sale will be located at a yet to be disclosed location in the NY metro area!
The date will be....SOON!
Pictures and final details to follow!

We're excited!



52 FLEA has been collecting way too long and needs to get rid of a ton of stuff!
(Come on, Laura...you can do it...it's time to clean out!)
and make room for more?

Lululiz said...

Nooooooooooooooooo, thats so not fair! Even if I had taught myself to overcome my fear of flying, saved up enough money for an air ticket and persuaded hubby to let me go the States, I probably couldn't have made it anyway now because of that huge ash cloud over the UK. Sigh. I'll just have to drool over the photographs you'll surely post.

I wish I lived near you so I could attend your sale - you both have wonderful selections on your blogs.

pam q said...

Well, you are living my dream! I am super excited to hear all about your adventure!

But NY??? Why don't you reconsider and hold your sale somewhere like, say, way out in the sticks of western South Dakota???

Ok. I understand.

I would love to get my hands on all that lovely thread in your photo.........

Can't wait to hear more and more about your sale! Best of luck!
