Custom Framed Vintage Postcard - Le Louvre, ParisDesigner: Flea market
The flea markets of Paris have many treasures, and this is one of them!
This one-of-a-kind vintage postcard was hand-picked by me during my last visit to Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, Paris' most famous flea market. It has been custom framed and is ready to retire from its life of travel on your wall or shelf!
If you are like me, you will get lost in the story that the piece tells. Try to imagine what were the reasons the original owner may have acquired the postcard…was it a souvenir, "wish you were here" memento for a lover, update to an old friend? It is easy to be enchanted by the image captured, but also the unknown history of the person who originally acquired it and the postcard's long journey. Its unique character will add delight to any space it is part of.
