I followed the call of a merchant of retro signs who was organising a garage sale in his Parisian loft.
Imagine a vintage walk amongst hundreds of stars and letters, each one with a history they could not tell me about. Each one having watched over a café, a bar, a restaurant, or some other small business enticing guests to taste their goods. All sizes - made of wood or metal - with or without lights. Small ones to hang on my Christmas tree, medium ones to align on my fireplace, and big ones to hang above my bed.
Stepping into vintage territory
Expat Girl would LOVE this
Letters and stars everywhere you turn
This might be a touch too patriotic
Do I need a pink S?
An e would do fine
Now that I found the letter, what font do I choose? Which colour?
Gigantic E with mini-stars
More stars and letters
For 200.- Euros this piece of art is yours
All it took was a walk into the back courtyard...
... and a climb up the stairs!
