Sourcing Our Vintage Furniture  featured image

Sourcing Our Vintage Furniture

Did you know that our furniture comes from all over the globe? Not only do we travel from coast to coast, we also love to hop on a plane bringing you the best vintage & specialty pieces worldwide. One of our favorite locales to source unique items is the South of France. The Marché aux Puces (which literally translates to “flea market”) is a series of markets located in villages all over France. Hundreds of merchant’s design stalls with unique collections of the best finds. Sometimes we even end up stumbling onto a farmhouse and finding treasures, which is an experience that can’t be replicated anywhere.

Hitting the road across the US is another turf where we’ve found some of our favorite items. A frequent stop is the Brimfield Flea Market in Massachusetts, which boasts a full mile of fields teeming with vendors all open from sunrise to sunset. Another favorite is the Round Top Antiques Fair in the Texas Hill Country. Held out in the open landscape, as well as under classic Continental Tents, this area host’s dealers as far as the eye can see with countless vintage and specialty items to explore. We get some great exercise roaming these fields to find amazing pieces!

We’re lucky to live in Southern California where we have two of the largest flea markets in the country. The Long Beach Antique Market, held at Veteran’s Stadium, is a whopping 20 acres filled with over 800 vendors, and has even hosted an episode of HGTV’s “Flea Market Flip.” The Pasadena Rose Bowl fondly known to every SoCal resident, hosts its very own flea market once a month and we never walk away empty handed!

Throughout our world travels, we’ve come across incredible pieces that we’re proud to bring home and add to our collection. Ever excited to hit up the next flea market or vintage fair, we bring you unique event items that will wow even the most well-versed vintage aficionado.
