Not far from the Chateau was this beautiful village called L'Isle sur la Sorgue. This village comes alive on Sunday's "Market Day" and I was in Heaven all-day! I bought beautiful old gold embossed french books dating back to the 1800's, beautiful old sterling silver tea-spoons, antique prints and old original posters some on old Italian paper to give it a more authentic look, I begged my hubby to buy a stunning chandelier but at $8000 euro ($15,000 Aussie $) not including freight and taxes he just wouldn't spoil me really what was the problem Ha! Ha! I was truly happy with my bargains and only regret not buying a full silver cutlery set, but it all just got a Little overwhelming even for a shopaholic like me. The beautiful old linens were in high demand and the pieces just layed out on blankets some just rubbish other pieces just dreamy treasures, tables of silver every-where were so tempting. The antiques stores that lay about this village down walk-ways and cobblestone streets were amazing, large oak cabinets filled with nothing but large white shells, the furniture, I could go on and on, the prices are not to bad and so much better and cheaper than the Paris markets. I will definitely go back and with alot more cash! By the way..I stopped over at Vicki Archer's blog and she has posted about the same village that I was at only a week prior, I also realised that she actually lives in the most beautiful village in Provence it was both Pauls and my favourite village, quaint, pretty and so very old with the best shops too how lucky is she and we wont start on about the Chateau!
