March 11-14: The Lapin Market!

 Believe it or not, Spring will be on its way in March!  The days will be noticeably longer, it will be warmer out, and the sun will feel just a little bit brighter.  To celebrate the coming of Spring, Confectionique's theme for our March market is  "Le Lapin" -- our annual Spring- and Easter-themed celebration March 11-14!

What's more quintessentially Spring than visions of bunnies, chicks, and lambs?  Our March market theme weaves all of these together into one tapestry of Spring delights -- with a French twist, of course!

Easter is Sunday, April 4h this year -- we'll have tons Paques (Easter) merchandise -- let us help you fill your basket with vintage, Parisian and handmade treasures!  And remember -- Mother's Day is just a few months away, too.

Nov. 5-8: Our "Holiday Fête" Market!

We love to travel to Paris in September, after the summer heat but before what Ernest Hemingway called the bad weather that "would come in one day when the fall was over."  When we return home from Paris, the change of seasons is usually underway here also.  Autumn is now in full swing in Wisconsin, with orange and yellow leaves and crisp, cool days.  Our hearts and minds turn to the coming holiday season.  Some long for the coziness of a wood burning stove, others for a snowshoe hike after fresh snowfall, or reading a good book next to a roaring fireplace, baking your grandmother's banana nut bread, the coming of Thanksgiving and -- not long after that -- Old Man Winter. It is especially this time of year that we may long for comfort and coziness the most!

We hope to create a sense of warmth and bundle you up in joy at our next market Nov. 5th-8th.  Our BY APPOINTMENT ONLY "Holiday Fête" Market is the first of our 2020 "Les Fêtes de Noël" year-end holiday festivals!  We'll have tons of home decorations for the holiday season, including Christmas, as well as treasures and lots of gift ideas from Paris and elsewhere in France.  We want you to feel as though you can come and stay as long as you please, as if  you are being hugged by beauty and find happiness around every corner.  And maybe you will find a little something for your precious, cozy home,

Oct. 8-11: Our "Paris After Dark" Market!

France is haunted.

No doubt -- there are spirits in the air in France.                                     

Don't believe me?  Then spend some time in the Paris Catacombs. This deep underground cave devoted to the bones of the dead is certain to make you believe in all things ghostly. How about Pere Lachaise cemetery? The cobblestone walkways between the ancient graves sometimes feel that they will cave under your feet. And what about some of the crypts that are no longer completely sealed? I dare you to peek inside one of them on a cold, crisp autumn night.

One of my favorite things to do when I visit Paris with my hubby Adam is to wander the narrow cobblestone streets of the oldest parts of the City of Light late at night and breathe in the history and romance of this ancient place.  Sometimes it's really quite creepy to look up at the dark, imposing shadows of the Concierge, where Marie Antoinette spent her last days imprisoned before meeting her sad fate . . . Even the river Seine has a certain eeriness about it when the wind is blowing and you can only hear the faint sounds of traffic above and the rippling water below.

Confectionique's October "Paris After Dark" market is where the City of Light meets the darkness!  What scares you? At Confectionique, we will do our best to creep you out just a little bit -- but with Paris style, naturally!

I hope you will join us on Thursday, October 8th from 5pm-9pm and help us kick off our "Paris After Dark" market as we celebrate all things Paris, and all things Halloweenish.  (Or should we say "Hallo-oui-nish?)  Get ready for a spooky season filled with autumn delights!

October "Paris After Dark" Market Hours:

Thursday, Oct. 8:            5pm-9pm 
Friday, Oct. 9:                 10am-5pm
Saturday, Oct. 10:           10am-5pm
