European container sale

Can you believe it…it’s already been a year since last year’s Spring Atelier de Campagne container sale! If you come away with nothing from each sale, you nevertheless KNOW what’s going to be IN. Champagne baskets and metal dolly tubs and odd zinc collanders. I saw them here first. And then they were the “it” item. All at pre-1stdibs prices.

French flea market

Here’s a view from last Spring’s sale. Always a fun event…the vignettes creating the perfect joi de vivre! The basket belonged to a famous touring vaudeville act and was picked up in London by Johan.  I’ve been a bit like Goldilocks with Atelier’s baskets: an earlier one here was too big, the above one was too small…#18/236 Lrg Wicker Basket

And this was JUST right. Reserved for me! If you see anything on the incoming list here you can grab it pre-sale by calling or emailing (terms here)
