My new French items for Etsy......

It's been a fun day adding some items to my Etsy shop for the Francophiles out there (you know who you are!!!!)
Why is it that the French do everything with so much panache and style? ~sigh~
I die for the vintage (1900 publication) of the famous Baedeker's Paris travel guide...who wouldn't? It's filled with interesting information and maps for the traveler....even has some stains on the front of it that I've convinced myself are wine stains while it was resting on a bistro table during a leisurely lunch one Spring in Paris......!

A lovely map...one of many.

And my last french dictionary...am I crazy? Perhaps...but there are always more out there, right?
~Sold~

And I just know that someone out there will adore this dictionary filled with illustrations! It's an old one for sure!
I'm glad I only had to go out for a short time today (for more mailing supplies) because it's darn cold here today...a good day to be inside working on my shop. I've never had a happier "job"!
Hope you're all staying warm......:)

Those are wonderful french books. Wish I could speak and understand french. I want to see the Paris flea market someday.
