Artefact Design and Salvage is a favorite jaunt when

I want to head up north to Sonoma…

Did you see my earlier post about this

terrific architectural salvage focused

design shop?  Previous post here

A bit further north…just off the Sonoma town square

French Flea Market
May 22nd & 23rd

Our sixth annual French Flea Market boasts a European-feeling

shopping adventure in the garden court of Chateau Sonoma. Located

at 153 W. Napa Street in Sonoma, just a half block from the town’s historic plaza,

Chateau Sonoma brings French importers from all over the Bay area to sell their

antique treasures directly to you at wholesale prices. Furniture, pottery, linens,

ironwork, light fixtures, jewelry…all will be available in this lively weekend event

that delights bargain seekers and Francophiles alike.

More information call 707.935.8553

The French Flea Market is held in the lovely gravel

courtyard behind the store, and spills out

into the side yard alongside the store…

Sonoma is such a charming place to visit…

makes for the perfect spring day….
