I love baskets! I love more collecting French Baskets! I found a wonderful resource at Sunday Brocantes...this is my favorite French Market Basket

French Baskets…

I love all things vintage…they have a story…they have been loved. I love many things French…there’s a charm and allure to items from and inspired by the French…combine that – I love collecting French baskets!

French Market Basket filled with faux apples and a very large Ironstone white pitcher

My First French Basket

Many, many years ago, we visited a market in Buford, Georgia. The booths were in an old factory. The whole place was charming and I was charmed by the many wares provided. I have long loved French inspired items and decor…then I saw it. A large, beautiful French market basket. I was so delighted and knew I’d bring it home to cherish. I have since used it in various ways as a decorative item. I’ve used it to store blankets, pillows, flowers and at times games for the family. For a while now, it has been in our kitchen holding faux apples and a very large Ironstone pitcher…

My favorite resource for French items...especially baskets

Sunday Brocantes

Then, one day, I discovered a wonderful blogger from Normandy, France who also had a market once a month…Sunday Brocantes. I’ve collected a few things from her from time to time. Some of my favorite are the baskets she’s offered.

I love the size and the look of this French Laundry basket I purchased from Sunday Brocantes
