My favorite part of what I do for The French Flea is going out and hunting for great pieces. Since I have more time after closing the shop, I am getting more into the "picking" part of the business which I love. A lot of furniture dealers in town like to use pickers because they either don't have the time or just don't prefer that part of the business. But...I'm not just picking for dealers - I also pick for individuals who are looking for particular pieces! If I find a piece, I email them a picture and if they like it, they tell me how they want it painted. So if you are wanting a piece and don't have the time or don't know where to look, feel free to let me know and I will put you on my list and let you know if I find something!
Here is a dresser I just sold to Emily. She was looking for a piece to go in her little girl's room so I sent her pictures as I got pieces in and she liked this one. I actually painted it white for her to go with a bed she had that I painted white.
Here is a piece I found for Brooke.
Here is a bed I am finishing up for Kelly.
