chateau sonoma annual french flea market northern california

The annual French flea market is inspired from those in France. We wanted to replicate the feeling of flea-ing in France here in Sonoma so that our neighbors and friends could experience what we were experiencing in France. Each year we recruit dealers from all over the north west to travel to Sonoma to sell their French imports. The flea market allows vendors to showcase their entire collection of wares, which are traded at wholesale prices. We strive to replicate the ambiance of France by serving sausages & rosé, hosting Michele the barrel organist, and including vendors with a variety of goods. Named the "Best French Flea in America" by French Country Style Magazine, we look forward to another year of bringing France to Sonoma!

As seen on ATELIER de CAMPAGNE & DREAMY WHITES LIFESTYLE.

Refresh Your Space Sale


spacesale.jpg

We wish you a very happy new year full of peace and prosperity! We look back on 2017 with full hearts, so very thankful to continue to be able to share our love of antiques, design, and artisan products with you!

As I put away the holiday decor and prepare for the new year, I find that editing spaces can be very therapeutic. It allows for fresh new things to come in and keeps the journey inspiring and fresh. It also allows for existing collections or furnishings to have more breathing room, which I feel gives us a greater appreciation for the things that surround us!

During the first two weeks of January (1/2-1/16) we will be having a New Year Sale with 20% off your entire purchase, with select items up to 50% off. It is my hope that you will be able to find meaningful treasures to add to your home as you refresh your space to welcome the new year. We hope to see you soon!.

American Garden School: Practical Soils + Irrigation

 
ediblegarden_fall+winter.jpg

Why do so many plants and gardens fail to thrive despite our best efforts and intentions? Soil health and irrigation are too often overlooked in our garden planning and maintenance, and can feel overwhelming to take on. Healthy soil creates healthy plants, yet what is healthy soil and how do we create it? Irrigation is essential to any garden or landscape, but how does it all work? Do we till, or can we choose not to? Different plant categories such as vegetables, annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees each require different approaches to soil development and watering.
