Paris Flea Markets

A lot of people have asked why I named the shop The French Flea. The name actually came from the idea of a Paris flea market - drippy crystal chandeliers, ornate frames and mirrors, french curved furniture, chippy paint and aged patina on furniture. And also the "shabby chic" idea of mixing a more expensive crystal chandelier with a weathered farm table. I may not always find those great things but at least it is the idea behind the name! Here are a few "Paris Flea Market" pics.
