Back in July, I took a business trip to Los Angeles. Before all the work started I found myself with a free afternoon to explore the city. Guess where I went....?
From the moment my trip was scheduled, back in the winter, I knew that if I found myself with any free time I wanted to make the trip to French General!
It was well worth the Uber cab charges for 45 minutes of LA traffic to see this amazing store in person! The cozy little pink shop is jam-packed with fabulous antique treasures and notions. If you've seen any of the AMAZING French General books, then you can imagine all of the beautiful products I was seeing.
As fate would have it, my phone had limited battery power when I arrived, so I tried to snap all the pics I could before it died. Womp womp womp....
These photos don't even start to scratch the surface of this fabulous store. But, they are better than nothing...
The products, the staff (hi Molly!), and the atmosphere were all wonderful. Not only did I find the vintage sewing and beading notions that French General is known for, but I also found several antique french treasures. I didn't expect to be antiquing while in L.A., and it was a happy surprise:)
Perfect vignettes are set up everywhere you look and I felt myself inspired to create.
If you ever find yourself in the Los Angeles be sure to stop in and explore... you won't be disappointed!

I'm back with a new blog series! Not only a blog series, but a VLOG series, too!
Take peek inside my home and shopping bag as I share with you all of the the goodies I got the last time I went antiquing.
I explain what the "Market Scores" feature will include in the video, but just to recap; I'll show you what I purchased and what I paid in the video, and on the blog I will share what inspired me to make the purchase (if anything beside pure awesome-ness!), and I'll help you find where you can get something similar!
(filming and watching this video has been a valuable lesson in makeup application! I promise I won't have an orange face in the next video! I hope you can look past it ;) )
