A very short post becausethis week, Wednesday in fact, I leave to go shopping. And not just a liitle shopping..... we're talking major container size shopping!
Can you say 5 weeks of non stop shopping????
It's Belgium first. With 4 jam packed days of my favorite brocantes and secret treasured filled shops, I'll be racing from one end of this beloved country to the other. Brussels was home to me for 4 years and I can not wait to be back! By the time I leave here, I'll have been around the "Ring" so many times, I'll be more dizzy or is that ditzy than ever!
And then... its off to France. Board the train for Avignon and a week at the gorgeous La Madone in Apt.
Brocantes and more brocantes await! Then there's all the tucked away, can not wait to see what they have,
shops and boutiques and puces! Did I mention that I don't rent cars? Utility vans and very large trucks are the only way to go.
From there I'll move a little further south for THREE WHOLE WEEKS!
I hope that you'll come along with me. I'll post about my adventures, and shopping for antiques always entails adventures. I'll also post my "finds" which you can find on my web site, http://www.sidedoorantiques.com/. Now I have to pack. I HAVE to shop. I HAVE to fill a container. And.... I'm forced to do it in Belgium and France.
I am a: Passionate hunter of French, Belgian and Italian antiques--I love the stories their history tells, real or imagined. Travel affectionado, any excuse for a trip and my bags are packed. Proprietor, Collector, Connoisseaur...... anxiously awaiting the next search.
