~ Sunday Brocantes ~


(Sunday Brocantes)

While shopping ETSY I found a wonderful shop called Sunday Brocantes


(Sunday Brocantes)

Cat (shop owner) is a transplant from the Pacific Northwest who fell in love with her french hubby 16 years ago in California. Now Cat and her husband live in France with their 3 children.


(Sunday Brocantes)

"Sunday Brocantes was conceived from my love of going to weekend brocantes as a pastime and in order to fill my home with the chippy, shabby, worn (and of course—French!) things that I love. In season, there are dozens of flea markets and sales each weekend and going to brocantes in other towns gave me an opportunity to explore new places and tiny towns that are off the beaten-path…..and find amazing treasures….and practice my French."  ~  Cat

I have enjoyed shopping Sunday Brocantes and I know you will love her blog and shop too! ;)

You can follow Cat's blog Sunday Brocantes and keep up with her and her french finds! ;)

Thanks so much Cat for allowing me to share a little about you and your shop on my blog
