Our recent treasure hunt for new vintage trinkets for The Vintage Jewellery Co our sister site at our local vintage antiques market in the South West of France.
So wanted this large shop front letters.
I had to walk away from the vintage linen and French lace….already have a overflowing trunk at home.
So I promised some pics of our vintage maps and here they are. I’ve fallen hook line and sinker for these French vintage maps, which we found at a local antiques market over in Biarritz. This one of the UK is just amazing.
Checkout the adorable cameo’s designed my my lovely friend Sophie from www.whatdelilahdid.typepad.com sweetest wedding present ever! They are also now stocked in Liberty’s.
My favourite ones have to be the Parisian ones. J’adore!
These are some of our more recent purchases bought whilst over in St Tropez.
Now I just need to find a home for them all.
On our recent trip to St Tropez I was lucky enough to squeeze in a visit to one of my favourite antique markets. I came away with a load of vintage school maps and am now the proud owner of a beautiful vintage map of Paris. I promise to show some pics once the house doesn’t look like some kind of wedding bomb has just exploded everywhere…leaving a trail of confetti on every surface…..who knew weddings could be so messy or that you would end up with questionable wedding presents…one being a wooden Welsh love spoon…note to self I obviously didn’t put the John Lewis vouchers in a bold enough font. Anyway back to the antiques market on the Place des Lices & snaps of St Tropez…don’t worry I will bore you with more wedding talk later.
On our recent holiday to the other side of France we couldn’t help but go in search of vintage treasures. This is one of my favourite places to pick up one off vintage charms and trinkets. It also has a great selection of vintage home wear and furniture. It’s a hive of inspiration and I always come home with baskets full of vintage finds. As usual we weren’t disappointed.
Yet again we spent our Sunday wandering through vintage markets & eating way to many buttery croissants. I spent my pennies on basket’s full of vintage brooches, which I can’t wait to turn into vintage bridal bracelets over at The Vintage Jewellery Co. Even though I have hundreds of vintage religious pendants at home, I couldn’t help buy just a few more. Its so hard to part with any of these vintage trinkets & charms. My jewellery box at home is over flowing with vintage delights that I just can’t bear to say goodbye too. It does make for a great dressing up box though!The obligatory vintage linen shot – still on the look out for DB, my initials! I’m not giving up hope.
