A few of mon blogging mes amis have asked about mon petite shoppe and what kind is it. Well, for the last couple of years, I've been renting a small booth at the Carlsbad Art & Antique Mall selling an eclectic mix of home treasures. Some items are brand new, some second hand, and some vintage.
My vision for my shop is sort of a flea market/brocante where one can hunt for unique pieces that they will want to take home. If I were to define my style, just like my header says, it's...french-inspired flea market living!
Here is my space which is constantly changing depending on what sells
This pair of shutters is an example of a salvage item I'm currently selling
Now here is one of the booth at the antique mall that I frequently visit. This space is way bigger than mine, and the owner's pieces are also bigger.
And finally, here is my dream shop. It's is located in Solana Beach, a very upscale neighborhood in Coastal San Diego. Everything here is tres jolie et trop cher.
So now you've seen mon petite shoppe...I hope you like it. Although it's small, it's manageable and a good starter business for someone like me. My dream someday is to have a shop of my own where I can set aside a pretty corner and be able to also serve une tasse de thé ou du café to my customers.
In my opinion dreaming is fashionable, so here's to a weekend of fashionable dreams! And don't forget to check out Fifi Flowers for her weekly post party of Fashionable Friday.
