Fun at the Flea Market

The Paris Flea Market in Carpinteria was cloudy and cool, but fun just the same. (I'm sure some of you would like cloudy, and cool about now).


As You can see, they put up their own Eiffel Tower. That is my friend Karen sitting at the entrance. She is a dealer, and a friend. She always has amazing stuff. You would love her, she is the nicest lady. This is a very small Flea Market, but really fun, french, and girly. Mark patiently waited for me while I shopped, and he also carried everything for me. ( What a guy)!!





Here are my french flea market finds. This great old red bench, I got from Karen. Some red toile paper for my art. A great french towel, which I am going to use as a table runner. We also stopped in Ventura on the way back. We had some lunch, at the Savory Bakery and Cafe, in keeping with the french theme. I picked up this lovely ribbon at my favorite shop, Garden Memories. Barbara the owner, said she had just gotten the ribbon in. Of course, I had to have some.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

call me jealous! it kills me to know there are so many treasures out there that I will never see! of course, I'd also outgrow my house really quickly if I had regular access to flea markets!

You found some great items to go with your red and French theme.

I can't wait to come to Californis again.
Carpinteria will be one of the first stops. I loved it there!
