Maybe 6 items on this one photo that could be suitable
Just like the chair I admired so much at Gill's in St Jean
The most expensive piece I photographed - just under £500, or less than half the price of a comparable new piece
I have also bought four second hand books on decorating old pieces, of which Linda Barker's Just Junk has been quite an eye-opener. There are half a dozen projects in this book which were exactly the sort of pieces that I see all the time at really low prices, yet were transformed in the book.
So our criterion for the French property is that ideally, each piece of furniture must be unique and not have been bought from a store. Our look is "French country / shabby chic". Each room must also be sparcely furnished. And ideally I will have some fun restoring a few items on the way.
