Paris Market Savannah Part 3

Here we are again for day three of The Paris Market in Savannah.  I just can't get enough of my memories of this beautiful shop.  It's really a good thing I do not live near here or I would have to visit at least once a week.  This is a two-story shop.  This is the stairway descending to the lower floor.  The side of the staircase is lined with stacks of old books.  In fact, there are stacks of books everywhere in this store.  I usually do not buy random encyclopedias that are one to five volumes but after visiting this store, I can see how the reds and greens of the old encyclopedias make perfect decorating accents.

At the bottom of the stairs is this bicycle built for two.  I love the red color.  Of course, I am partial to red and love this tandem bike.

This table setting is gorgeous.  I particularly loved this whole room.  It was very inviting.  Made me want to be invited for dinner.  I called this table the pallet table.  The top looks like pallet lumber.  I love the formality of the table mixed with the simple design of the furniture.

Now I am almost embarrassed to show you this photo because it is the inspiration for my table top chalkboard I showed you this past weekend.  This was my inspiration.  This one is way better than my feeble attempt, but you can easily see how I could get inspiration from this whole setting.

How about this santo?  She truly does look like a saint, doesn't she?

Here is a closer look at this beauty!

And alas, our tour today is ending.  Don't worry.  I have more to show you.  Eventually I will get to the other parts of Savannah, but you will have to indulge me for a while longer.  Yes, I took more photos, but you will have to tune in next week to see more.  Thanks for visiting.  Adieu!
