Dear Antiques Diva,

You had given me advice and-much welcomed-encouragement for my trip to shop the flea markets of Paris. I thank you so much for your tips! The trip was wonderful! I went to the Place de la Bastille antiques show and to the Porte de Vanves flea market among other markets.

The Paris flea market I found most disappointing (I had read about it in a book – it wasn’t on your advice list) was Montreuil… Beggars lined the streets getting to the market (it was a very sad sight) and most of the market was new, junky stuff. Icky! To top it off, it’s a long metro ride. I think I spent more money giving handouts to the poor than at that particular market!

The Brocante at the Place de la Bastille was expensive, but what a site to behold! Gorgeous! I got great decorating ideas for my shop and a few trinkets. My fav Paris flea market was the Porte de Vanves where I got many good deals and the atmosphere was grand!

Thanks again for the information and encouragement, it was truly appreciated.

PS. I’m happy to say I felt right at home in Paris! I was nervous before going that as a sensibly dressed American I wouldn’t fit it and that everyone would be wearing black!

Dear Jackie,

What an absolute delight to receive feedback on your Paris antiques shopping trip! It sounds like you had a ball and it was so wonderful to tour the Paris flea markets thru your eyes! I agree with you regarding both Montreuil and Porte de Vanves. Indeed, Bastille can be expensive, but isn’t it oh-so swoon worthy! In addition to your great feedback on the markets, I was delighted to see pictures of your shop in Rehoboth, Massachusetts – it looks like you scored some delicious inventory for your clients!

Today on my blog I’d like to feature YOU – Jackie Lantry of Bliss Farm Antiques – as The Diva of The Day!!!

Sincerely Yours,

The Antiques Diva™

(this crown seen right is just for you!)

Diva-scovery: Bliss Farm Antiques:

Bliss Farm Antiques has a beautiful inventory of antique, vintage and artisan finds. On a mission to sell only green and artisan made items, everything in their shop has been re-cycled, re-configured or up-cycle! In other words – nothing from Bliss Farm Antiques is factory made. Owner Jackie Lantry lives on “the farm,” a few acres of land in Southeastern Massachusetts, where she not only sells antiques and vintage treasures, but she grows peonies for wholesale! Last year she cut over 6,000 flowers in 10 days of harvest!

While her shop also sells online at Etsy, if you visit the shop – it’s a sight to behold – you can walk a labyrinth built with “found” materials or sit in the garden and listen to the birds.
