Kamers 2011


KAMERS 2011 has come and gone. A lot of late nights, long hours and planning went into preparing for this event.


although I planned to take photographs before the opening night rush started, it did not happen. Half way through the show,day three,  vignettes ever changing and depleted stock..here are some memories.















added gift tags, ribbons and t light lanterns -Noel spirit






 I met so many lovely people, fellow bloggers and francophiles hungry for  all things french..it made all the hard work seem like no effort at all.

I thank you all for stopping by, loving what I love and sharing the passion for a french touch.
I am working through the visitors book and will acknowledge your request to be updated with new arrivals.

 Christell, Adela and Elena,
Merci
for helping on the stand, without you it would have been impossible to do.

Bonjour from Aix! Just a quick hello as I try to catch up around the 'hood. I wish I could have been at your shindig...looks like you had some *wonderful* items available. I've been looking for those La Poste pillows! Or satchels! They sold them in the poste here for a bit and I didn't grab them...zut! (You have a post from a while back with several shots of light captured - lovely! Really lovely.)

Glad to see you chugging along!

Dear Colette
Absolutely drooling - wish there was a way of purchasing on the net. Do u have a shop in the area, we can visit if we are down that way? Thank you for inspiring me.

Colette your pictures show such a wonderful array of frenchie stuff at Kamers - I am so sorry I missed it - was ferreting around in Tulbagh and Paternoster but I had you in my thoughts. Glad to hear it was such a great success.

I love every last bit! The patina on that table made me swoon. I just painted a table that color and now I think I should rough it up a bit!

Thanks for taking the time to post these lovely images!

Thank you Colette, I always feel so honored with a visit from you. Of course when you do I follow you back home torturing myself with all that you amazes me with, your talent in your work and events leave me in toxicated with your wow-ness over here, and I so wish I could shop in person taking one of everything home with me, maybe two of some :)

I adore your style such time worn history French markets do not compare.
lots of U.S love to what you inspire, I am taking some with me in my heart of desire.
