The Charming Vendeuse of Avignon

On Tuesdays in Avignon there appears the most charming and small of brocantesjust in the square in front of les Halles. There we met Maria Teuch, who is as beautiful as her wares, and she graciously let me photograph her and her things. And a good thing too, for France TV3 contacted me for these photos to use in a story about Maria and her stand at this little brocante! {the series, called "Jour de Brocante" airs event Sunday on France 3 at 1:40 pm} Come see her gorgeous things as we did on the Chic Provence Design Tour 2014!

you MUST have these to serve your springtime asparagus, cherie!

a beautiful collection of silver spoons and coffee & tea service

lovely embroidered monogram linen serviettes (napkins)

close up of hand stitched "boutis", classic Provençal method of quilting

more serviceable old linen and cotton tea towels

these would add a dash of cheer to the kitchen, non?

pretty serviettes in jacquard linen with hand embroidered monograms...can you find your initials?

so many beautiful things...the coffee & tea set is stunning!

Come with us next time on our Chic Provence Design Tour! You will see markets such as this and have many wonderful experiences! Our Tour this year was an outstanding success so begin to think about joining us next spring!


  1. Dear Kit!

  2. Kit, you are making me crazy with all these goodies!
    I collect anything fine and old for my home and as gifts, so ALL of this is simply splendid.

  3. Maria Teuch has so many great quality items, which are getting rarer to find at one stall. I can see why your tour visits her. Warm regards
