I think you would love Camel Stop shop....

As I told you last friday, once you enter Gym's shop, you want to stay there for hours ! Originally, Gym restored an old building and transformed it into a house with bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, painting studio, patio and roof terrace but then she decided to use it for her antique shop. She opens it on appointment only usually during week ends, so I went with Monchéri on sunday. While he was helping Gym to put back the top of the Moroccan tent up on the roof terrace, I could wander to my heart's content, discovering her latest finds.
And now, I let you discover it...welcome to Camel Stop shop!







This is the little thing I brought back for an afternoon tea lover...Isn't it cute ?
Actually, we then had mint tea on the roof terrace under the Moroccan tent, without the walls though as it was nice to feel the breeze. I will post the pics next wednesday.

Wishing you a serene start of the week !

Bonjour Lala. Oh, oh, oh, can I have a close-up of those beautiful plates on the dresser? What great finds and treasures, I'm surprised you managed to leave the place ;-)

Thank you so very much for your lovely comment today, I know so well what you mean with "time flies..." but I really appreciate you taking the time for your long comment and your idea for private sales at home is brilliant.

Your message is so lovely and supportive...and means so much to me since things really aren't easy. Thank you so much & Lots of Love, Carole xo

Lala ... if I lived in your corner of the world - I think I would be there at least once a week - to see what was new. I loved the tea pots - and the two items you purchased are so sweet.

Thank you for giving us a peek inside, Gym's shop.HHL

You are such a talented photographer!

Thank you for welcoming us to this wonderful place. I love the Orientalist painting on the easel and all the Mediterranean shades of blue and green throughout the shop.
