Following the success of last years Companion we are launching the 2024 Companion, a new book/planner filled with 12 new French markets to visit. This year we have the addition of some French cooking and some finer details to markets. ‘The Companion’, a beautiful A5, 190 page 2024 planner filled with beautiful images from Hayley Peters the founder of Ivy Joan Home Provisions. The beautiful book features quotes and positive affirmations as well as step by step guides for French markets – the perfect partner for Brocante lovers everywhere.
It is a traditional diary planner but with a focus on antiques and brocanting. You’ll be able to jot down engagements and birthdays as you would a traditional diary but the twist is it has a very special opening to each month - an introduction to our favourite French market that takes place within that month. There will be photos, top tips on what to look out for and all the details you need to locate the market on the day. This is a fantastic guide for those passionate about brocanting, whether you are already out doing it in France or curious to start. It may be the final push you need to take the plunge and get out there for yourself. It’s also a superb gift for those that simply love French vintage. It provides a great opportunity to learn about where our products come from and our life buying, even down to the best place for a Pain Au Chocolat!
As well as the monthly markets this diary also has a beautiful introduction piece that will give you some overall knowledge on the world of French brocanting and vintage buying & selling.
We can’t wait for you to feel the pages, have a coffee while you read and take us with you on your daily adventures.
An awful lot of work has gone into this project as you can imagine so we have erred on the side of caution and order is by pre-order only, this will be open for a short period of time until this project goes to print meaning we can deliver in time for Christmas and most importantly for you to start writing down your appointments and engagements from January.
Please note this is a preorder for the second print run and will be dispatched mid November if this is ordered with multiple products the other products will be dispatched in November alongside the diary. If you require other products earlier, please include them on a separate order.
