Bonjour! I am feeling very French today!
Did you know that we have a French treasure trove to explore in our very own backyard? French Metro Antiques on Dickson Street in Fayetteville will satisfy your inner Francophile. Put it on your to-do-right-away list.
What is the foodie connection, you ask?
Tucked throughout the nooks and crannies of this gorgeous antique store are kitchen gadgets and accessories. Believe me, I possess massive spending restraint each time I go in this store. What’s not to love about charming wine racks, hammered copper cooking pots, and candlestick holders? Seriously, if you want to add a special touch to a remodel or add that perfect I-must-have-this-instant-ambiance, French Metro Antiques is your place.
Of course, those of us in Northwest Arkansas are extremely privileged to have this charming store in our backyard. But don’t worry if you aren’t from our neck of the woods (which is crazy, move here already) because French Metro Antiques posts items online that are available for sale! They ship worldwide.
Yes, even to France.
Want to know about my latest foodie find?
(It could’ve been yours.)
This 19th century mossy green cast iron enameled trivet with a heating element (a tea light fits perfectly!) is mine. All mine. It is perfect for keeping my team warm after boiling water on the stove.
Oooo la la!
Here’s another super foodie tip…
French Metro Antiques can be YOUR personal shopper. Always wish you had that “perfect” accessories or item? Contact them and describe your wish list. They will keep their eyes open next time they are on an antique buying trip in France.
I’m so doing this.
I’ve always wanted a gorgeous coffee percolator. And a slow-cooker. Something with charm. Who knows? Maybe there is a mossy green cast iron enameled one out there just waiting for me.
What’s your dream French antique?
No, Jacque Cousteau doesn’t count.
Eat well, my friends. Eat well.
