Paris Flea Market in Atlanta

FI have the perfect place for you to shop this Thursday and Friday—the Paris flea market. The good news is that you don’t have to leave Atlanta! The amazing Helen Ballard Weeks is having a flea market right in her front garden. There are chandeliers, lamps and lanterns hanging from the rafters and baskets, brackets, doors, shutters and architectural salvage galore. The buildings and tent were bulging with furniture and marble topped chests along with paintings, china, ironstone and mirrors. There was even a section of fabric, rugs, and table clothes ironed to perfection. Take a quick trip to France this week for a look. Here is the link and directions for the sale— Ballard estate sale. Enjoy!
