Francine Clouden's Profile
I've been living in France for just over eight years and I fell in love with the flea markets. Known as Vide Greniers, Brocantes or Marche aux Puces, thrifting is a way of life for my family, and it is how we primarily furnish our home and dress ourselves.
I love nothing better than to head out on Sunday mornings to search for treasures. I started out collecting trims and buttons for my paper crafts, many of which you'll find in my shop. I love it when I come upon a stash of buttons or trims that obviously came from a crafty woman's home. Wound on, or stitched to pieces of cardboard, I am taken instantly back to their sewing nook in my mind.
We dream of owning a stone farmhouse one day, and so I am always looking for furniture, decor and kitchen items to one day furnish it. In the meantime you'll find a good selection…
