Look what I discovered today (during a random etsy search, oh I love those!)….there is a Pyrex equivalent made in France (known as Acropal) !!! (photo credit to Vintagebananas).
Now I have another item to add to the thrift shop, flea market wish list for France! Did I mention that we are going to France? The girls and I leave in a week and I am starting to spin with anticipation (and flea market dreaming)….hoping to find a fancy tea cup, a gorgeous serving tray, beautiful vintage table cloths, gently used linen tea towels (to upcycle and to use), a map of old Paris (to frame), some original art (of course), stationary (vintage postcards are calling to me, maybe an old book or two), perhaps a doll for the girls and some little surprises too…..all Raena wants is a beret and I bet we could find them both some fun costume jewellery!
My French thrift shopping has already begun (and I have not even ordered any of the Acropal from etsy…yet!). I recently found a few old Paris wall plaques at our local thrift shop (locals will understand when I say “SCORE at the GIRO!”). LOVE! Soon I will be strolling these very same streets and making pen and ink magic of my own. Did I mention that we will be staying a 15 minute walk away from the Notre Dame?!
And, oh!, as much as I want to buy this old case for packing my travelling art supplies in, I think had better save my cash for vintage treasures when I get there. Who knows, maybe I will find a little old train case to bring all my art supplies (and wee paintings) back home in!! Photo credit to forgottenPLUM on etsy.
This reminds me, I better start thinking about packing…not too much stuff mind you, there has to be room in the suitcases to bring all our vintage French treasures home!!!
