The French Market at Red Shed Antiques, Grapevine Texas

Welcome to The French Market at Red Shed French Antiques & Travel. Our shop is located in Grapevine, Texas and we are open every Monday - Saturday, but right after we return from shopping trips to Paris & Provence, we celebrate by holding a French Market Sale. Enjoy photos from the French Market held last weekend on June 2nd. 


We close down our shop for a week to completely re-merchandise our buildings and gardens....sometimes we are fixing and fluffing round the clock...this picture was taken at about 3am right before the sale..
 We hold back all of our newest French Treasures until 8am the day of The Market...
The early birds start lining up at about 730a.....Then at 8a they all dash in different directions..We love them!
 In the 6 posts done on this day, you will have your own looking glass into a French Market at the Red Shed...
You don't have to wait for a French Market to visit The Red Shed. Each day you will find  amazing displays, interesting French and French style antiques, tons of French decor and ephemera....

Repurposed furniture and re-imagined vintage finds....



and best of all, YOU can join us on our Flea Market Shopping Trips to Paris & Provence! Every Spring and Falls we take groups of 12 ladies to Paris and Provence to shop the Flea Markets! This ultimate girls trip is great with your Best Girl Friend, Mom or Sister, but just as fun if you are on your own. We can even find you a roommate! Visit our website RedShedOnline.com for more details or call us at 817-310-6006.
