Getting their Christmas on: The French Farmer's Wife


One of the things I've loved to watch over the last few years is the growth of the many vintage shows here in our area of North Carolina. 


One of the newest places for vintage goodies is The French Farmer's Wife. Kathee and Gail have combined their businesses--Chateau et Jardin and The Urban Farmhouse--and curated a look that 's like nothing else in the area...totally on point! They're open every month (with the exception of January) for a sale where I can get both inspiration and a few awesome goodies.




I don't get to the sale every month, but I made it a point to be there for the December sale because I knew there were some things that I had my eye on.




The French Farmer's Wife is a great place to find one-of-a-kind items to add to my ironstone collection. And that cabinet above, with the screened doors? To. Die. For.




The pointe shoes are not for sale, but this cool display of them hanging on pegs makes me wish I had saved mine. Dangit.




If you love rustic...they have rustic!




And in keeping with the idea of France...




Rusty, chippy, shabby...




And a Mary for your grotto, if you happen to live in an area where this is a common addition to one's yard.

If you are in the area, you need to make The French Farmer's Wife a stop in your travels. You can check out their Facebook page here.

Well, I wish it was in my area! What a wonderful place.
I see lots of things I'd snatch up.
Have a good weekend, Kirbs!

We have a couple of fun shops in town, but I would definitely enjoy a few more.
