Summer Is HERE!

Summertime was officially launched yesterday at our seaside fete & I think, as everyone who attended can attest, it was white haute summer chic.
“Amazing”, “Fabulous”, Over-the-top” was what we
overheard as people looked in our windows & waited to get in the front door!
Every dealer here stepped it up a thousand knotches for our French Riviera theme - there was beaucoup vintage, coastal chic everywhere you looked, fabulous canapes, bubbly pouring all day & a packed French Flea Market in our back lot.
The centerpiece of the flea market was Sandra Finn’s amazing “Petite Caravan de Francais”, (a 1950’s travel trailer) that had been completely refurbished with Sandra’s masterful designer mojo behind it, culminating in a pied-a-terre on wheels that had every single man & woman oohing & ahhing over it. That’s why it sold in the very first hour! Oh mais oui - Fabulously French doesn’t begin to cover it.
In the front room, Karen Lampard of Café Paperie once again waved her magic wand (& enormous artistic talent/genius) & Voila! Woven paper & duct tape, haute Couture, Bathing suits & Bikinis! I kid you not - Ooh La La - times a bizillion! You must come see them because after viewing these bathing beauties - you’ll never look at a swimsuit the same way again!
If you’re not jetting off to Paris this summer, or holidaying in the South of France, do make it a point to come visit us -
Our forecast calls for weekly arrivals of beaucoup vintage, coastal chic!
