The Paris Carousel

Bonjour, mes amis! As promised, I have some exciting news today! I have opened another shoppe on Etsy, called - you guessed it! - The Paris Carousel. This new shoppe will be dedicated to raw vintage jewelry for the purposes of wearing or upcycling into assemblage jewelry of your own.

Since I'm finding that some of my customers are now starting to make their own repurposed gems, I wanted to offer unique and affordable supplies to support our habits, shall we say.

Here is just a sample of what The Paris Carousel currently has in stock. I will be adding inventory to the shoppe regularly, so please check in to see what's new. :)

And now for some handiwork of one of my sweet customers, Priscilla sent me this thoughtful Valentine's gift!

She decorated this box by distressing it with white paint, and adding vintage French book pages, an image of Marie Antoinette, button and lace. She also sent along this pretty Marie notepad! Thank you so much, Priscilla! You must have been reading my blog to know that these would be perfect gifts for moi! :)

Finally, I wanted to show you what I've been up to in my own French Circus studio lately.

Special thanks to my good friend Sharon for once again creating my new shoppe banner and to all of you who encouraged me to get The Paris Carousel open. Your support is what gave me the confidence to go for it! Have a very happy weekend! :)


  1. Beautiful work Robyn! Now I have another shop to browse...
    Au Revoir,

  2. A lovely blog as usual. You certainly have a way of showcasing all of your lovelies! And a big merci beaucoup for mentioning me on your blog! You are so very kind!
    I'm also loving your new shop!
    XO Priscilla

  3. Robyn, not sure why my comments are not getting through to you... but congrats again on your second shop!

    1. Hi, Susie! Some others have told me they've had trouble leaving comments too, but yours worked fine this time! Thank you for continuing to check in. I hope all is well with you and your family. :)
