the perfect gift for the francophile and antiquaire

Firstly, I hope that everyone has had a wonderful Christmas time with family and friends (and received as many lovely thoughtful gifts as I did!). One such gift was this book by Laure Verchere. The pages are filled with the most inspiring images from stalls of the Saint-Ouen flea markets (les puces in French) of Paris. Now all I need is a little time to sit and read this book, and to dream of trawling the streets of les puces again...


  1. How wonderful. I hope it get to go back to Paris someday so I can wander through the markets :)

  2. O yes!! take your time to read this book !! it looks great !! happy new week darling.......enjoy.....love Ria.....

  3. Tammy, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. The book looks great. I'm definately going to get it since I dream of going to the Paris flea markets!

  4. Hi Tammy, Hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family. I popped into your shop today and it is fantastic. I met your sister and she showed my son how the till worked. He delighted in telling me that you had a far better shop!! Anyhow at least I have something to aspire to! All the best, Cathy

  5. Hi Tammy,

    Glad to hear you had a wonderful Christmas.

    Your new book looks very interesting and would resonate with you as you have been to that region in France!! Lucky you!!

    Speaking of lucky, Cathy above, is lucky. I am envious and hope in the not too distant future to darken the door to the Emporium!!!

    Have a great day tomorrow Tammy.

    Take care
