This set of Vintage French playing cards have been mine for several years. I haven't worked out the rules of the game, but is described on the back of each card as "French for Fun".
They have however been very useful in improving my vocabulary, especially useful for buying vintage costume in France!
The other thing I love about these cards are the charming illustrations......
Don't you just love those slippers?
Having just returned from the Antique and Collector's Fair at Newark - just wanted to share a photo of our stand which had a VERY French flavour this time, in fact I overheard one customer saying "that it was just like a French Flea market in there"! Luckily I didn't need my parapluie for very long as the sun shone for most of the 2 days. The fair at Newark is a huge event and full of a very eclectic mix of stalls. The next fair is on Thursday and Friday the 6th and 7th of October. well worth a visit, so do come and say Hello, we have everything from buttons, lace, linens, costume, painted furniture, mirrors and much more!
