Bar domination continues…

21 Sep

If good things come in 3’s then I may be getting a call soon…If they don’t then it’s ok as I might start running out of pictures!


What am I talking about? Well, The Deco Press now has 9 pictures on display upstairs in The Midnight Bell, Leeds Brewery’s Flagship pub in the centre of the city. I chose an eclectic assortment of images dating from 1912 up to 1930. They’re all black and white and work well with the aubergine walls. The management were looking for artwork which complemented the mismatched vintage furniture, old beams and exposed brickwork. 





Hanging them was fun…I had to work around customers who were finishing long Friday lunches. I found that trying to hammer quietly and un-noticed is hard. I also nearly slipped over in my wooden cowboy boots on the very shiny wood floor. Luckily the results look good!

    Hi. Love your blog about France and the brocantes, flea markets etc. I am just home from a wonderful trip to France myself. I t was really exiting stopping off at the brocantes, there is some truly amazing stuff around!!! Best of all though was the huge ‘ Foire Nationale A’La Brocante at Chatou on the outskirts of Paris. I buy and sell vintage costume jewellery so was looking for new stock, I managed to find some fabulous pieces so now can’t wait to get selling at all the lovely fairs coming up. Do you know where I can find information on fairs and flea markets held in France. Good luck with your collecting.!!!

      Hi Ann, Lovely to hear from you. I happily visit every flea market I can when I go to France. The range and quality of stock is fantastic and they have so much character and interest just from a people watching view! is a good site for finding out where brocantes and markets will be taking place throughout France. Good luck with your collecting and selling. It’s a busy time of year!
