We Bid You Adieu ~ A Peek Into Last Month's Shopping Cart

Have you ever snuck a peek at what the person next to you in the check-out line has in their cart? "What did they get? How much did they pay for it? And where did they find it because I want one too!" is what goes through our minds!

It's a lot like that at Paris Flea Market during the sale: people are always so curious as to what's been bought and is heading out the door. Well, we know it's not quite the same, but in the interest of quenching your curiosity, we thought we'd show you what were the most popular and fasted-selling items for our October opening. (You can click on the photos to see them larger).

This gorgeous buffet/sideboard with an aged-to-perfection finish was one of the first things we waved goodbye to early on during the sale.  We're not sure if it'll be used for its intended purpose of storing china, or not, since there are so many other ways to use it! It's easy to picture it in your home office to house your scanner, printer and CPU. Or in the family room, under the wall mount TV and all the media equipment stashed inside its beautiful exterior! Wait, stop your dreaming! It was priced at $195.00 and now it's gone!

Another sideboard with an all together different look; part apothecary cabinet, part kitchen island! We love the painted and natural wood treatment on it because it gave it a twist on a traditional look, making it an easy piece to add to almost any style home. $195.00 took all the parts of it right out the door!

When's the last time you had a moment to yourself? Believe me, you'd make the time to sneak away to a cozy little nook if this Louis XVI chair was waiting for you there!  We loved the painted wood frame with layers of green and cream, to say nothing of the gorgeous neutral fabric and trim! It's sitting pretty at its new home after checking out at $185.

All dressed up and somewhere to go! Here's a darling little dresser, painted a soft blue/green and hand waxed to give it an aged finished, but it's really not too old. We find lots of these pieces, but they are made of a solid wood that's not too much in demand anymore. So we give them a makeover that's just right for today's look! With a flirty scalloped skirt, and a price of $165, it caught someones eye and home it went!

Coffee, tea or table? Serve yourself at this fabulous table with a oh la la fleur di lis hand painted smack dab in the center. It's such a great size, and there's an extra shelf underneath for that overgrown magazine collection of yours.  $159 made it an easy decision for one of our smart customers.

And for our last adieu, we watched this beautiful, curved front, five drawer dresser head 'round the corner home just before we flipped the "closed" sign on Sunday. We thought $245 was a great investment on a dresser built to last forever and will look elegant doing it!


Maybe next month you'll see a picture of what YOU bought listed here! (You can also SIGN UP to get the monthly email announcements so you'll be reminded of each sale and any monthly contests just before it happens.) Our November 1- 4th opening will be full of lots of holiday goodies and one-of-a-kind must haves! Hope to see you there!

Witch Hat Do You Like Best?

Things got a little scary during our October 4 - 7th opening at Paris Flea Market. And by "a little" I mean we had some small participants in our annual $100 prize Witch Hat Contest! They were accompanied by their mom, Louise Jones, who also had a lovely entry into the contest:

Next, our door was darkened by Nancy Thomas, shown below, who came in with the smallest witch hat entry on record!!! How can you choose between them all???

  But, we knew we were looking at the winner when we saw this number fly in later:


How can you not be moved to shrieks and applause when you see the skeletons looking over the brim and the spinning witch on high, commanding attention?!?!?!?! 

You are the winner of a $100 shopping spree at Paris Flea Market!

Thanks to ALL of our customers who participated this year!
