Antique-lovers, get your skates on! It's the last weekend for the spring version (and 80th anniversary) of the Foire Nationale aux Antiquites a la Brocante et aux Jambons at Ile de Chatou. Doors are open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Sunday, March 21.
Be sure to visit Blandine Bavoux's charming stand of kitchen delights at 78 Allee Nouvelle. Blandine's discerning collection was featured in the January-February issue of Campagne Decoration, my favourite French interiors magazine.
Sunshine yellow canisters and red and white enamel skillets.
La balance: kitchen scales in three sizes.
Wonderful enamel coffee pots and tiffins.
Canisters and a hanging wall cabinet for spices.
Porcelain canisters (above) with a Dutch influence.
A geologist's measuring instrument is one of the unique attractions at Blandine's Jolie Trouvaille. If you can't get to Chatou, check out Blandine's online shop.
P.S. My daughter Jordana's work is mentioned here.
