I want to share with you the space that we have in The Antique Trove.  Look for us on aisle G.  Our dealer # is 236.  

Old wood ladder with vintage passport.
Glass domes with string and flower frogs.

Vintage luggage and old gauges.

Medicine cabinet with old photo and vintage cake topper.

Birdcage and ironstone on shabby dresser.

Seashells, glass measures and wood stakes on garden table.

A big double space full of treasures for your shop or home.

Galvanized buckets on primitive bench, cement pots, full of wooden shoe forms.

Paris Flea Market

Pin It
We have been invited to sell at The Paris Flea Market this Sunday March 27th.  It will take place in the parking lot of the cute little shop Fleuri.
The hours are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The address is 7301 Fair Oaks Blvd. Carmichael

To see pictures of the shop Fleuri, go to this blog,
The French Hen has joined Fleuri and she is now selling in the shop.

The last two shows that we were to sell at got rained out.  At this point the weather looks like it may hold.  I will keep you updated as to whether or not (no pun intended  :)) it will take place.
These photos are of previous shows.  Similar items will be available.

See you at the Paris Flea Market on Sunday!

Thank You

Pin It
I want to say Thank You for all of the sweet Birthday wishes the last couple of days.  Two of us bricoleurs celebrated our special day this last week. 
This blog is mainly for business, and not a diary of our personal lives, but since there where so many B-day comments, I wanted to acknowledge them.  As some of you know, I LOVE my B-day, and it was nice to be thought of.  ;o)

Drawers & More Drawers

Pin It
Who doesn't love little drawers?

Lately, cabinets with little drawers have been one of our big sellers.  These cabinets don't last long.  There are so many things you can use them for, and they can be used in just about any room.

Optometry Cabinet

Geologist Cabinet

This one has a smooth metal top and is on casters.

Danny (one of the bricoleurs), works hard on these cabinets to make them perfect, just for you.

All of the cabinets are for sale.  If you are interested, please contact us.  Leave a comment, and I'll get back to you.
As you can see, some of these have sold already, but we always have something similar.

Change in plans...Again

Our plans have been changed again.  This Sunday we were supposed to be in Oakland selling at the Candlestick Antique Show.  Because of the rain again, the show has been cancelled.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Stayed tuned for more updates on what show we will be at next.  Thank you for understanding.
The sun WILL shine again.

A successful Sacramento show

Pin It
The show in Sacramento was succsessful this last weekend.  Although the time change caused us to be a bit more tired than normal, we made it through the day with customers buying right up to the very end.
As I mentioned before, this time we had a big sign that advertised the Antique Trove, the antique mall where we sell.  (Do you see the lanterns?)  We always try to light up the space so that customers can see what they are buying.)
We meet lots of friendly people at these shows, like our neighbors across the aisle, Robert & Ellie.

They come from the Bay area and sell vintage clothing.

If you get the chance, come see us in Downtown Sacramento sometime.
