Waking up on a Saturday morning and heading over to Apt for the weekly market is a joy. Once there, the sights alone captivate.. flowers, fruits, vegetables, cheeses everywhere; lots of fabrics, leather goods and baskets too. I was able to poke around the village and found "La Brocante".. which is exactly that... pretty much a second hand store... but hey, this is French second-hand stuff! I also had a moment to peek into a lovely design shop.
|looking beyond vegetables I spied this intriguing shop in the background!|
|the wicker lounger is a little worse for wear, but at 25 euro, quite the bargain too!|
|great collection of apothecary jars and etc in La Brocante|
|who doesn't like to poke around in|
junk shops.. here you could score a
Ricard pitcher for pennies!
|while at the market outside you could buy a bathtub full|
of dried rosebuds...
|...or the perenially beloved Basque striped fabrics at|
a few euros per yard
|... or a rosemary tree or watering can....|
|.. or lavender soaps....|
|while inside the nearby design shop, this stunning silver metallic|
medallions printed onto linen and used as draperies
really caught my eye!
|and this rustic lamp with it's rumpled linen shade sits|
front of that exquisitely printed Manuel Canovas silk
|two more stunning silk fabrics in this Provençal designer's shop in Apt|
|and the beautiful work at Atelier du Vieil Apt took my breath away|
|after all the browsing, we ended up in this little resto a few miles away from the bustle of Apt|
