I wanted to get a blog post on my blog this week about the upcoming June sale event at the shop I am selling in called "The French Flea" in Anoka, Minnesota. I was at the shop setting up my wares on Sunday afternoon, and it wasn't photo ready at that time, so I wasn't able to take any pictures except of my jewelry display area, which was completed at the time. However, I did want to share with you my blogger friends a few photos of this months wares, so I have borrowed them off of the monthly email newsletter that is sent out each month. I give the photo credits to either Lani or Kimberly, as I'm sure it was one of those gals that actually took the photographs in this blog, so thanks.
June's theme for the shop is - "Lady Liberty Enlightening the World", which was a gift to the United States from France. The French meaning for this theme is "La liberte eclairant le monde."
Another vignette in the shop.

A couple of great vintage wicker pieces at the shop. The chaise on the left is in pristine condition.

This picture has a great faux fireplace mantle, a wall of lovely white mirrors and lots of vintage silver pieces displayed across the mantle. Silver has been a great seller at the shop, as we rediscover the beauty of silver with a patina on it. I'd choose the patina over the shiny silver any day. It is just so useful.
I will post again later or tomorrow photos of my jewelry that I created for this sale. I have 23 new vintage redesigned pieces for the sale, as well as lots of other great finds. Come on in and say "hi".
Next Month's Theme -"Lazy Days of Summer"
