I love antiques, estate sales and flea markets, especially French flea markets. My dream of visiting a true Parisian flea market has yet to be realized, but it looks like I can get my Paris fix right here in Bend, Oregon this weekend.
A hand-picked selection of vendors from all over the west will be selling their antiques, vintage and repurposed furnishings and accessories, and handcrafted Etsy artisan goods and objects d’art. The French Flea Market at Pomegranate is Bend’s best juried flea market and is celebrating its 11th year.
The French Flea Market takes place every summer in Bend, starting in June from 10am to 4pm on the historic grounds of Pomegranate Home and Garden, one of my favorite go-to stores in Bend for special gifts. They’re located off Business Highway 97 and NE River Mall Avenue (across from Macy’s). For more information or directions, contact Pomegranate Home and Garden at 541-383-3713 or visit their website at www.Pomegranate-Home.com.
If you’d like to find out about more funky, off-the-beaten-path type of places to shop in Bend, I highly recommend checking out Good Finds in Bend for a where-to-find-guide on a few specialty retailers spread out around the city in locations that you may never find.
Happy shopping! Or, should I say Faites de bonnes emplettes!
