One of Sonoma's main destinations is Chateau Sonoma.
It is located in the heart of Sonoma and no, it is not a winery.
Chateau Sonoma is a little piece of France in this wine country.
Its proprietress and createur, Sarah Anderson has poured her passion
for French Antiques in this marvelous boutique. There are no words to
describe it. As soon as you walk into the store, all of your senses are delighted;
your eyes widen with the amazing beauty of her displays, the aromas of French
lavender and verbena soaps tantalize you.
You find yourself caressing each item as though trying to touch the past, the music in the background makes you think of street accordion players on the cobblestone walkways of the South of France, and you can almost taste the freshly baked baguettes as you imagine yourself taking a tour through the streets of Ile Sur la Sorgue.
Sublime perhaps would be appropriate in trying todescribe it.
Sarah travels through France procuring and gathering an array of unique items that she artistically combines in her shop creating magical vignettes. Her displays often elicit gasps and cause the faint of heart to almost swoon. Treat yourself and visit her web site but make it a goal to visit her store soon. You'll be delighted.
This weekend, May 21 and 22, 2011, Chateau Sonoma is hosting its annual event French Flea Market! Come and find a new item to add to your home or garden and enjoy the revelry among lively, spirited people. At this event, Sarah gathers vendors from all over who cater to those who love French and other European antiques. It is not just a Flea Market, it is an experience that transports you to another space, another country.
Will you please join us? It will be a double treat, for you'll be able to enjoy a day in a "French Flea Market" and also visit the inside of Chateau Sonoma. Who said you had to pay high fares to experience France? Come to Sonoma this weekend!
