I haven’t posted on my blog since last summer I think. Not having the store here in Collingswood kind of slowed me down…not kind of…it did.

I saw a picture on Pinterest of a shop up in Montmarte in Paris. The name of the shop was l’ Objet qui Parle and looked so charming. I thought, I’m going to that shop on my next trip which happened to be just back in March. It is such a fabulous store and it’s only about 200 sq ft if that. These are some of the amazing things you will find if you get there!

It was such an amazing shop with so much character, and so many fabulous finds.

This was the weekend before I was heading South to the flea market so I didn’t buy much, which was a bummer!!

I did get a few egg cups and a painted piece of mirror.

You’d never know by looking at my house that I just love chandeliers. I have one in my dining room and one at the top of my stairs. 

I find chandeliers so elegant, graceful, (well, the ones I like) and each design is so different and beautiful. I’m really drawn to the chandeliers with crystals, but for some reason, in the shop and my house, I only have wall sconces with crystals.

We found a few while shopping the Paris warehouses, and in the South of France, take a look…

This one below is French Art Nouveau, c1900. The beautiful art glass shades are each signed ‘Mueller Frehers’.


This is a French Mission Style chandelier with an orange art glass shade. It originally had three art glass bell shaped shades in the ‘Mueller Frehers’ style, but they didn’t show up with the shipment, merde!!


  You can see the beautiful mottled orange, blue and white globes…that never showed up…double merde!

When we were an the antique fair in Avignon, we found this gem, a hand-painted wrought iron chandelier, c1930. We had it cleaned and rewired and came up just beautiful.

This is one of a pair of incredible ‘Belle Epoche’ hand-painted wrought iron chandeliers. They are not electrified but hold candles, and have a beautiful green glass ball on the bottom of each. c1910-20. They are 52″ high. Stunning!!


At another flea market, we found another ‘Belle Epoche’ style hand-painted wrought iron chandleir, but much, much smaller! It has ‘Saxe’ porcelain flowers. Very sweet, and we had it rewired.

Wonder what we’ll find in August…mmm??
