French Style At The Beach

P1010202b One of my favorite stores to leisurely browse though is Pacific Grove Antiques.  The shop’s proprietor is Marilyn and she has the store filled with gorgeous antiques from Europe and France – along with American antiques as well.  Every nook is carefully stylized with remarkable pieces for sale from glistening chandeliers, silver plate, antique oils, French religious statues, old books, mirrors, lacy linens, furniture and so much more

I took plenty of photos to share, however if you ever have the chance to go shop the shop in person, the experience is delightful.  Marilyn and Jill (Jill works at the shop) are so nice and were gracious to allow me to snap some pics of the store.  Thank you ladies!!

P1010206aP1010206a Did you see anything that caught your eye?  Besides the crucifix and the alter angel, I was admiring the salesman sample miniature dresser and the sponge ware dairy milk pitcher.  Oh, and lets not forget the pretty antique oils of flowers.  Swooon…..  I literally could nearly decorate my entire home with findings from PGA!

I LOVE shops that are so stuffed with treasures that "We play hide and seek" around every corner...I would definitely not go home alone from their beautiful wares! I'm going to have to spend lots of time here on your post to study your pics.
Thank you so much for sharing.
Have a wonderful week,

Simply beautiful. But I must say as a Kansas girl...that pitcher from Halstead Kansas made me giggle...smiles..Renee

Vee said...

It looks like a delightful place to my case browse. I have always liked those conversation seats (what are they really called?). Anyway, that's what took my eye right away. Then it was the cute little angel from the French church; however, it has such provenance that I wouldn't want to be responsible for it. Terrific eye candy and how sweet of the store to allow photos.

Thanks for sharing the pictures!! I have to say it all is lovely, but the alter angel stole my heart!!


Susan Freeman said...

Big Hugs,

I'd love to stop by there and spend a day looking at all the beautiful things..........many of which would be perfect in my home! Then I'd have to drive back here because there's no way I could stash it all in a suitcase!!

Thanks for showing us around Becky - lovely visit.

Hugs Mary
