Haven in Paris

Dear Diva Readers,

Recently  I wrote to you telling about tour-of-paris-marche-aux-puces/ ” target=”_blank”>the article our friends at Haven in Paris shared on their HiP Paris blogThis week I want to share with you an inside glimpse at the fun & funky Parisian apartment of Haven in Paris owner Erica B. 

Earlier this year Erica and I had a chance to meet in person and I was absolutely smitten with not only Erica but the view from her Montmartre pied-a-terre as well as her divine French kitchen décor!

Above the door to Erica’s quirky kitchen hangs a giant Patisserie sign purchased at one of my favorite flea markets in the south of France. 

Erica happens to be a flea market maven and one day while shopping in Ville Neuve Les Avignons she honed in on the biggest bargain at the market.  This sign was going for a song and knowing she had a good deal on her hands she snagged this sign and before she left the market other vendors were coming up and trying to buy it off of her!  

In fact, I suspect this happens to her a lot for she has a great eye for French Flea Market finds and when I walked into her apartment my flea market mouth went into action!  Though I normally try to contain myself from trying to buy items off my friend’s walls, I immediately put in an offer saying, “If you ever want to sell that sign…” and she cut me off at the chase saying “Not going to happen!” 

I appeased myself by playing with her cat and laughed when Erica agreed with me that “A True Diva always has to try when they find something they want!” 

Erica happily showed me around her apartment and in getting to know her and seeing her fun French style of décor I could understand why her company – Haven in Paris – has become so popular.  She chooses apartments with personality – that show the French joie de vivre and style of décor.  Her commitment to excellence in quality guarantees the apartments in her selection are top quality.  Plus – you may not know this – but when Erica is at her other home in Italy she rents out her Bourgeois Bohemian partment as part of the Haven in Paris line up of sensational places to stay in Paris. 

Make sure to visit tour-of-paris-marche-aux-puces/ ” target=”_blank”>Erica’s blog – HiP Paris – and check out Haven in Paris apartment rentals on your next stay in the city of light (or in her other locales in Tuscany and Provence).

Paris Diva Guide – Franca

They shopped with one of my Paris Diva Guides – Franca – and my favorite line of the article reads, “After experiencing a guided {Paris Flea Market} tour, though, we couldn’t imagine a serious antique-buying spree without our lovely Franca there to guide us to the real gems and ease away our fears with her expert bargaining.”

Franca is an absolute gem and simply an expert antique shopper and I must tell you that I consider myself  down-right lucky and honored to work with 4 lovely ladies in Paris – they help me guide Paris Antiques Diva Tours when one of the other 6 countries where we offer tours has me away from the city of light and I’m not able to lead tours myself!  I’ve gathered a team of professional stylistas who know Paris like the back of their hand to guide Diva Clients through the Paris Fleas… and whether you’re shopping with Franca, Kim, Jennifer or Laila this statement from HiP Paris holds true!

Each time a client takes a tour they tend to write me the nicest notes, thanking me for introducing them to their new best friend in Paris – saying “I couldn’t imagine shopping the Paris Flea Market without The Antiques Diva & Co by my side”. 

On Antiques Diva Tours, we don’t just shop with you – we share our life!  We’re like your interior decorator, personal shopper and best friend combined and it just so happens we have an incredibly chic little black book of the best addresses in town and it’s our goal to match our contacts with your shopping desires to help you find that perfect souvenir from Paris! Don’t forget that in French “souvenir” means memories – and our goal is to help you buy memories so you can bring them home and put them on your mantle!
