French Friday and Weekly Recap

For today’s French Friday, I want to give a shout out to my friend Cat at Sunday Brocantes and her husband, aka “French Guy”.

So….they live in Normandy, France…she’s an ex-pat and he’s…well he’s French!

They were wonderful tour providers and they compliment each other perfectly.
French Guy is an antiques expert and professional shipper and he was very patient with the 5 of us wacky American “drooling over French antiques” women for a week.  I think we asked him a billion questions and he was helpful and patient.  His knowledge is astounding and he has lots of interesting stories about France.

Here is French Guy (right) with my husband, Tim (left) last year in Normandy.

Here is French Guy strolling around the antique shop.  Maybe he was trying to hide from us very American “gasping and pointing at all the cool antiques” tour participants!

And here is the lovely Cat.  She worked very hard to make our tour the best.  We loved getting to know her and spend time with her shopping at her favorite places.  She even drove the bus van when she had to.  She is a woman of many talents. Isn’t she so très chic?

I shared this photo of us earlier this week.  I’m so glad I got to  know her.

 If you ever need a shipper or a French connection concerning antiques you must give them a call!

Hey Kim....loved all the pics of Cat and the "French Guy"...yes, he certainly had his hands full of us bombarding him with so many questions and statements like "so what do you think about this piece Alain?"..."well at least this one"...but, he was always, always patient and accommodating and informative...and Cat, the very same way...they are truly a kind and generous couple...I am so glad that you was able to meet up with them last year as our trip may not have happened...so thank you sweet Kim!.....Hope you and Tim are well. Have a great weekend!
