A Paris Street Market

In Littleton, CO there is A Paris Street Market on the first Saturday of the warmer months.
My sister, Taryn and I love to shop here.
I was looking for an old, chippy door for my front porch and a display old window frame.
The market did not disappoint!
I love this booth with all of the old doors.

Taryn purchased this for her headboard, she already has it set up so I hope she posts on it soon!
We were a little worried it wouldn't fit in the back of my vehicle but obviously it did.
We are not good at measuring.....we like to "eyeball" and so far this has worked out for us!

A sea of people and it is 8 AM, which is the time it opened. Many things are already sold by 8 so you have to get there early.

Destiny from Farmhouse Vintage was there, I always love her style.

My totally packed vehicle! Luckily some very nice men helped us load this.


Taryn, happy that we got her headboard in.

My new message board. Imagine how lovely this would look with white or pale blue walls. Time to paint again!

I had to move this sign I made some time ago to this spot.

My new, old, chippy door! I couldn't put it outside just yet :)

I have been looking for a wire cloche like this so I snached it up!

Love this bread box from Destiny.

Wire basket also from Destiny.

Lavender sachets from Destiny. I love the old pin and number.

Fun times shopping at the Paris Street Market!
Happy 4th to you!

    Lucky girl!
    Regarding painting...I think you would love the chalk paint becuase you don't have to prep anything cutting down on your time...I'm the exact same, I hate the long process but this has been really easy!
    Have a fabulous weekend!

  8. I wish I lived near you. It looks like a fun place to get lost in. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I think you and Taryn would be stiff competition for Matt and Gina when it comes to filling a vehicle with treasures.

  10. Omigosh, I love those old doors you found! I'm a sucker for old doors especially those that look different. I wish I lived close to that flea market, looks like fun. Happy Wednesday!

  28. Love all that stuff! I lived in Littleton many years ago for a short time. What a great area! It's great they have such a wonderful french flea market and what an original idea! Love your blog. Lana

  29. Hi Shanon,
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your nice comment. You have some great pieces throughout your house. I wish I could snag some of them lol. I love the Paris piece hanging in your new quest bath. Did the Eiffel Tower come on the chicken wire? So cool! The Paris picture that was a birthday gift is so cute...I want one! Your chippy old door is great, and the little wire cloche is too cute. Thanks for following my blog...I am now a follower of yours :)

    Have a great night,
