When it comes to the brocante, I am ready when you are.
What I hope to do is to create a brocante experience that is tailored made, as you want: French Antique international fairs, flea markets, second hand stores, architectural salvage yards, anywhere in France, but mainly Paris or Provence, suitcase or container, teacup or armoire ...
possibly classes on dying linen, paper mache with Nicol Sayre, visiting my friend Mo and her pottery... endless ideas for having fun in France... as if one needs a way to have fun in France.
Heck, I am happy if you come to France, and when sit by the river and shot the breeze.
Hopefully I can organize what works best for you, example:
Day trips, or longer,
one on one, or with a group.
Complete stays were I work out all the details (hotel, restaurants, car, where to go, who to see, packing...)
or simply meeting you at the brocante.
I have sent containers before, and I have packed a hurried suitcases.
When it comes to French antiques I am no stranger.
It doesn't have to be grandiose, and it doesn't have to be planned years in advance. I am open to making it work for you.
Endless possiblities. If you are interested let me know by email: coreyamaro (at) aol. com
France, antiques, tours, brocante...
And if you are like my Brother Mat and my cousin Franca Bolla, were antiques give you a hiva (a word my Mother always said.. it is used when something bugs you, "It bugs me, or it gives me a hiva."). Well then let's meet for a drink of your choice.
Brocante or not, I want to share what I love about France.
Food, culture, the landscape, the seaside, the people...
I am heading back to Paris to do the final touches on the apartment... Hopefully the massive chandelier is ready, and I find a sofa that can fit up the stairwell.
My friend Lorna was our first guest, and next week my friend Elizabeth aks Contessa on the blog, is staying in our apartment.
We hope to rent the apartment a few weeks out of the year to family, friends, and those who read my blog. If you would like to find out more about the apartment in Paris, write me on Facebook or by email.
I am looking for someone to come to France and help me learn a few things regarding the internet, typepad, blogging, formatting videos... a lovely, easy to understand computer graphic geek sort of person. No my children cannot help me, blogging is not there thing. In exchange you can stay in our home, Paris or Provence with us, I'll feed you and show you the sites. I am not changing my blog.... persay, I just want to add a few new features and learn a few tricks. If you are interested let me know.
As you can see I am on a roll, full of ideas.
