French Gray Bergere Chair in Linen

I just finished a pair of these and I think they've sold already at $180 each. French gray frames, lightly distressed with taupe linen upholstery and toffee trim. I'll be looking for more frames like these and finishing them with the same treatments as they seem to be quite popular. Enjoy the last weekend of August! We are starting to get excited around here for some new farm additions. Hoping to pick up our first set of goats in the next few weeks. Who knows, you could get a pound of fresh goat cheese with every chair purchase from A Touch of Mink! :)

Pictures from a Great Sale in Yakima!

Wow! Traci, Jane and I could not have been happier at the Clayson Farm Primitives Flea Market this past weekend. As usual the turn out was fantastic. I sold all but one of the chairs I brought with me and most of my furniture pieces. Lots of lookers on my French iron daybed-straight from a gazebo garden in France no less, but no takers. So that little gem will come with me to the Ruffles & Rust show in October in Monroe. Jane sold a ton her vintage French fabrics and Traci was stripped of her smalls! A great day of fun filled with terrific people. Thank to Leslee at Clayson for all your help!

Getting Ready for the Big Clayson Flea in Yakima on Saturday! YIPEE!!!

Next Saturday August 13th is the Clayson Market in Yakima and I'm so excited to be one of 50 vendors selling our one of a kind finds there. Don't let the "primitives" part of the Clayson make you think that's all that will be there. Vendors with all kinds and styles of vintage wares are at Clayson and the deals are not to be believed. The Clayson Flea has all of the charm of a good old fashioned flea but bumped up a notch with so many great vendors. Not too big, not too small but just right! I will be sharing two booths with my fabulous partners in crime, Traci from A Mix of Madness and Jane from Found Collections. We have a ton of finds! I will have at least 4 or 5 of my signature French chairs. A fabulous authentic antique wrought iron French daybed in it's beautiful original chippy blue paint, tons of pillows, and one of a kind finds. Click on the Clayson link on the left of my blog for directions. It's a great way to spend the day. Hope to see you there!
