A bibliotheque, asparagus plates and other French goodies

I was thrilled to visit one of our contact's trade showroom and warehouse today. He was brimming with goodies that he had just sourced on his travels to France. I pounced on a French oak bibliotheque or bookcase with lovely ornate handles and wire covered doors (pictured below) as well as a set of ten French majolica asparagus plates.
We are contemplating the French armoire, below.
And we bought a lovely French mirror in amazingly good condition and a good size, not too big. In its reflection there is a faux bamboo chest of drawers with a lovely marble top that we also bought. We are very pleased with the day.
Tomorrow morning is an early rise for a large trade fair. The weather has been very good, blue skies and no volcano ash that we can see. It makes me think that the fair will be even bigger and better than usual. I will try and get some snaps on my way around, hauling my granny trolley and purchases.
