A NOTE FROM SALLY BAKER
Hello and welcome. My name is Sally Baker. After living in the beautiful Marin County, CA, I moved to France with my husband, Bill, and our three children: Emily, Charlotte and Harry. During our three years abroad, we travelled relentlessly throughout Europe and parts of Africa and Asia.
Every summer was anchored by a visit to my favorite place, Île de Ré. This absolutely wonderful island is located off the Atlantic coast of France. Each morning our precious town would host a morning market filled with vendors selling everything from cheeses, farm picked fruits and vegetables to clothing & home accessories. I loved riding my bike on the cobblestone streets to "centre ville" to fill my basket with our daily baguette, picnique lunch and the makings for a dinner that would be enjoyed outside our cottage with dear friends.
Once my necessary items were purchased, I would enjoy visiting the other vendors selling beach hats, Turkish towels and light & airy, cotton clothing. Since my stay on the island was limited, I would always find room in my basket for that one item I just "had to have" that day.....
Visiting these charming markets and talking with the vendors is one of my favorite memories of our time abroad. I love the care in which the vendors would set up their stands - each item carefully displayed, each vendor proud to tell their story.
Returning home with a basket of treats was always exciting for our kids. They were eager to nip off the baguette and see what "treasure" I stumbled upon that day. Now, receiving the packages for LE BAZAR COASTAL is a bit like that morning market basket's arrival. The kids help unpack each package and excitedly ask what it will be called and "Who do you think will buy this one?" I design or handpick all of the items sold on this website.
This is my little market stand. Like the vendors on Île de Ré, I take great pride in my offerings and am always searching for the next day's treasure. I hope you will love and enjoy these pieces as much as I do.
