While the subtitle of this book on it's own is a fairly accurate, the title is definitely misleading. The first two times I spied it at Borders and months later at Barnes and Nobles I was so excited. That's how inaccurate the dustcover is. I was fooled twice! I'm so glad I saw it first in a brick and mortar store because I WOULD have ordered it if I come across it on Amazon. And I would have been very disappointed. It is not about "vintage French interiors" or any other kind of interiors. I'm not saying the book has no value. It provides an interesting survey of objects one might run across at a Paris flea market. Some of the items looked as if they might be available at a Kansas flea market as well. (Isn't that interesting. Some Europeans may have appreciation for things just because they are American, that strike us as "ugly then, ugly now".) But the title does imply that the book will explore at least some examples of these finds being used to decorate interiors. It doesn't.

Having pre-ordered this I was a little apprehensive about its contents, despite its promising description and cover. I was not disappointed! It took me on a nostalgic trip to the flea markets of Paris I had visited and wetted my appetite to visit more. I love the slightly shabby brocante featured and the imaginative displays provide inspiration. The title could be a little misleading; however, the subtitle gives an accurate description of the books contents.

I lived in Paris for 4 months once, and this book brought the charm and intrigue of the flea market. The stores are full of the most incredible collections--awful junk stacked next to breathtaking antiques, treasure for decorators, and bits and pieces that dare you to pick them up and try to find a place for them. It seems as if every home in France was crammed with chipped gilt mirrors and statues of the Madonna that ended up in flea market stores.

This book provides a return trip for me, and I loved every page.

What struck me as especially useful was the list of addresses in the back. For anyone about to travel to France, this would be a godsend.

Format: Hardcover
This is an address book with one picture from each source. Takes up a lot of space for a source list. Useful perhaps for designers.
