On Sunday, January 25, during Maison & Objet and Paris Déco Off, I was asked to join event host Toma Clark Haines, aka The Antiques Diva, for a discussion on shopping for French antiques, moderated by Michael Boodro, Editor in Chief, Elle Decor. It was standing room only at The Annex to La Petite Maison in the Marché Paul Bert Serpette, as 300 guests filled the restaurant to hear the discussion and partake in a champagne breakfast. It was a fun, informative and lively discussion before everyone descended upon the flea market armed with insider tips. Here are some photos from the event.
