We’re in the throes of renovating our house and hope to finish a fourth bedroom for our daughter Savannah by the end of the summer. Luckily for us, the flea market season is in full swing, so Saturday mornings are spent scouring local sales.
Of course, if we don’t find what we’re looking for at a village flea, we can always turn to one of the many excellent Etsy sellers or online mom & pop shops. I have a little black book full of inspiring French shops, all who know how to curate and style.
Here are a few of my favorite lesser-known shops…
Vintage Tomado-Style Shelf
Available for $132 from Trendy Little.
Trendy Little is a new-to-me shop on Big Cartel that specializes in vintage design for kids. This wall shelf would be perfect for a preteen or teenager’s room. I really love their vintage maps and 50s garlands as well—scroll down the sold section to get a good idea of their style.
Vintage Wicker Crib
Available for $335 from L’Atelier du Petit Parc.
L’Atelier du Petit Parc is a rising star in the online French children’s world. The quality of their products and styling is impressive, and I love popping in to see their new finds. This crib is reserved, but the shop renews its stock often and always has a tempting selection of beds, chairs, desks, and accessories. Love!
Antique Iron Bed
Available for $600 from L’Atelier Charivari.
L’Atelier Charivari is a trendsetter, as far as I’m concerned. Specializing in furniture and decor from the 40-80s, this shop offers a fine selection of beds, wardrobes, and desks for children. I love their eclectic taste, refreshing color schemes, and beautiful styling. You have to be quick, inventory moves fast here!
Art Deco Transformable Crib/Sofa & Baumann Desk and Chair
Available for $643 and $290, respectively, from Baos.
If you’re looking for something a bit more eye-catching, head on over to Baos. Based in Marseille, this online shop offers amazing finds with strong graphic appeal. All would work perfectly in a young child or a teen’s room. Why didn’t I have a play pen like this one in the 60s?
Don’t let language be a barrier! If you don’t understand French, online translation tools are pretty accurate these days.
