While setting up in the morning, I caught a quick glimpse of a booth filled with beautiful color, textures, and patterns and I was instantly intrigued. Elizabeth Cronin of Abeille Occupee (that's "busy bee" in French) came over and introduced herself and we quickly discovered that we loved each others' goods! Elizabeth is a frequent traveler to France and finds unique textiles and treasures for her interior designs, clothing, and accessories business. Elizabeth carries unique tunics, dresses, scarves, and other wearables with lush colors and patterns. She traded me a gorgeous orange patterned scarf and floral fuchsia tunic for one of my vintage green and pink rouge compact lockets. I've already received tons of compliments on the tunic! Visit Abeille Occupee's international bazaar of goods for the perfect gift or a treat for yourself.
